Relaxing

I spent the day relaxing.




I arranged the Christmas roses.


I sat on the deck wrapped in my blanket.




I read to the birds.





They seemed to enjoy my voice



until Cooper's Hawk flew through the backyard.

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon! Sorry that I haven't been around in a while. I was visiting the grand baby. :)

I wanted to be sure to wish you a wonderful Holiday Season.

Lol on the hawk. All was going good until he or she show up.

Love the rose pictures. No roses here, just falling snow for Christmas

The arrival of a raptor does tend to put and end to avian relaxation.

Great shots, Sherry.

Your captions reminded me of haiku you know like:

I read to the birds
They seemed to enjoy my voice
Until the Hawk came

Quite a gathering for your reading Sherry. Was it the tale of Christopher Robin, by chance? The Hawk is stunning....I am finding a fascination with these birds.

The roses are beautiful....perfect blooms.....

I am so glad you found time to relax.......
