Our World!!

Welcome to Our World!!  My favorite time of
 year!

Beautiful flowers and beautiful bird families!  But flowers first!! Our baby bird
was peeking out the door and Mom flew off to bring him some breakfast!!  So fun to watch them!!
Join us and share your world and its beauty with us!!

How strange that Nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude! ~Emily Dickinson,

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. ~Lao Tzu


The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do. ~Galileo Galilei

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. ~Khalil Gibran
I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright. ~Henry David Thoreau

Always a pleasure to read your quotes and see your photos! That little bird with its beak full of something that looks like nesting material, is adorable!
Have a great week, Sylvia!

Beautiful photos - the flowers in the first one are amazing. Nature doesn't have a subtle magnetism for me, it's a full-blown attraction!

Hi There, We are home from a trip to the gorgeous West VA mountains –where we celebrated our anniversary… I’ll be blogging about this time for awhile –since it was so special.

I love that little Chickadee.. We have them here year 'round... Such adorable little birds. Love the comments about Nature not knocking yet not intruding....

Hugs,

Betsy

It is always exciting to see new baby birds. One of Heather's pots in the front porch hosts two or three sets of mourning dove nests ever year.

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
