Pileated Woodpecker – A Backyard First

By Heather / July 3, 2020

Over the past few days, I’ve had a Pileated Woodpecker show up at my suet feeder. I’ve never had one in my backyard before and have very rarely seen them around on the island although I know they stay here all year long. The ones that I’ve seen before have been at higher altitudes and […]

I Listened To The Wind

By Heather / June 22, 2020

I listened to the wind today. I heard it calling and beckoning to me. “Come play,” it said… “come play”. Then blew the grass sideways and laughed. The trees bent their branches under its force. Their trunks swaying as it pushed against their upright bodies and then snapped back into place as the air passed […]

Homegrown Meal

By Heather / June 19, 2020

After last week’s fiasco of eating pizza on Friday night I decided that this week I would spend some time in the garden harvesting dinner. Not that it was a chore or anything. I love working in the garden and I have the suntan to prove it. It was time to thin out the carrots […]

You always hear the saying… eat your vegetables and on some level you know they are good for you. And today I finally realized why it was important to eat your veggies. First, let me say I love to garden and I grow most of the vegetables we eat. But also, there are a few […]

Birthday Girl

By Heather / June 10, 2020

Can you believe it? After 2 weeks Rob said last night that my birthday party was over. It all started a week before my birthday with take-out Chinese food. That was a treat as we hadn’t been out to dinner or ordered in since February. Next came the bark mulch! Now… some of these may […]

Letting Go

By Heather / June 9, 2020

I failed. I can’t believe it. I have the perfect opportunity to do some “letting go” and I completely missed it. Okay… so I’m sound asleep and around 6 am I become wide awake with a cramp in my foot. It’s a charlie horse and it feels like the sides of my soles are trying […]

How To Catch A Bald Eagle

By Heather / June 5, 2020

I know the title says “How To Catch A Bald Eagle” but I’m not physically capturing one, except with a camera. Because… it is illegal to capture a Bald Eagle with anything else. Under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, it is illegal to do just about anything that involves eagles both dead and […]

Daily Photo – Cut To The Quick

By Heather / May 18, 2020

Years ago I was cut to the quick. By whom… I never knew. One day I was hanging out in the forest enjoying the day and the next minute, the pain! I never dreamed that this could possibly happen to me. It was a long time ago but I can still remember the burning and […]

Daily Photo – Wood Frog

By Heather / May 17, 2020

I came across this little wood frog in a mountain ash tree. Normally the berries are red but this was still early in the season and they are still yellow with a pink blush on their way to crimson. The little frog caught my eye and I could hardly wait to take a photo of […]

Daily Photo – Camo on the Beach

By Heather / May 16, 2020

I was walking along the beach one day after the tide had gone out and found this specimen laying in the gravel. Seeing it from a distance my first thought was someone had discarded a piece of camouflage material. You always get the most interesting things coming in on the tide. But as I got […]
