Mother's Day

White Crowned Sparrow
and the female Rose-Breasted Grosbeak
were in the gardens today.

Another pair of House Wrens are nesting.

It is Mother's Day.
Today we honor Mothers.

We thank those that have nurtured us.

I walked in my gardens.
I remembered my Mother.

I remember the wise women
that have gone before me.

I thank these amazing women.

I look within.

Happy Mother's Day.

Sherry, thank you, and Happy Mothers Day to you! I love the pictures as always. I'm glad to know that is a white crowned sparrow that I have in my yard. BTW, if you have a moment, would you mind stopping by the blog and help me identify the cutest baby owl? It may be difficult w/o a photo of the parents? -Tammy

Beautiful birds and flowers...and the books look very interesting! I hope I can find them to read! I posted photos of a couple of 'mystery' birds. I hope you will visit and see what you think they are! Thanks! ♥

Good morning. We have a few whited crowned sparrows visiting but haven't seen any grosbeaks yet this year. Our house wrens are back and nesting.

Spectacular shots of birds and blooms, Sherry. It's good to remember those who have guided us.

Dear Sherry

I am sure walking the gardens and thinking of your mother, bought her close. You must miss her.

You always manage to take such beautiful photographs of the birds......always a pleasure to see what visits your garden.

Hope you and yours are well and happy......

A belated Happy Mother's Day to you, too, Sherry! And also happy Anniversary wishes as well. I am so glad your daughter encouraged you to begin sharing your photos with us. Seeing the marvels of nature through your eyes is always an enjoyable and inspiring experience, Sherry.
