Daily Photo – Spring Arrival of The Black-Headed Grosbeak

By Heather / May 12, 2020

Very exciting day! The spring arrival of the black-headed grosbeak. Like the rufous hummingbirds, I wait for them with anticipation wondering will they will show up this year. Normally they are very skittish and if you move by a window in the house or open the door they disappear. They don’t just disappear, I can […]


Daily Photo – Innocence

By Heather / May 11, 2020

This dear little Inca dove always reminds me of total innocence. According to Webster it means: Innocence means you’ve done nothing wrong. You’ve broken no laws, committed no sins, and are not guilty of any morally evil act. Oxford says: The notion of innocence refers to children’s simplicity, their lack of knowledge, and their purity not yet spoiled by […]


Daily Photo – After The Bath

By Heather / May 10, 2020

This dark-eyed junco spent the winter with us and one day when the sun came out I caught him taking a bath. I love watching birds take a bath. They take such joy in the process and I find most of the birds will bathe every day or even twice a day. I have a […]


Daily Photo – Hummingbird and Rosemary

By Heather / May 9, 2020

The rosemary is out in bloom and it’s a wonderful source of food for the hummingbirds especially when a lot of other flowers aren’t out yet. I have a lovely large bush of this aromatic plant (5 ft high x 4 ft wide) and most dinner usually have rosemary in them. The smell is wonderful […]


Daily Photo – My Backyard May 8, 2020

By Heather / May 8, 2020

Right now I’m sitting on the deck with my laptop typing this post. It was a beautiful day here today with the sun shining and so hot you wanted to stay in the shade. But the breeze was lovely and the clothes that were on the line have dried quickly. Spring cleaning is going in […]


Daily Photo – Flute Tree

By Heather / May 7, 2020

I have been wanting a flute stand for a while now that I have four flutes. They have been laying around on the desk, table, pile of books and wherever I put them down once I’ve finished playing. Depending on my mood will depend on which flute to play but first I have to hunt […]


Daily Photo – Sprites

By Heather / May 6, 2020

Walking on the trail I could hear them before I saw them. They were always anxious to talk and play and even walk with me a while. Very social but few people saw or heard them and they had little contact with the human world except to watch them go by. Dogs were a little […]


Daily Photo – The Rebel

By Heather / May 5, 2020

Standing straight and tall with his roots above ground is the rebel. Not for him to have his nether parts safely under the ground and out of sight. Not for him the norm of splaying his roots to get a better hold to the earth. When the wind blows he holds on with his nails […]


Daily Photo – River Otter Lunching

By Heather / May 4, 2020

Spotting something swimming in the ocean I waited with my camera posed to see what the depths would offer up. First, there was a nose that disappears followed by a curved back and tip of the tail as the otter dived again. Curious as to what he was up to, I sat on the beach […]


Daily Photo – The Eye of a Tulip

By Heather / May 3, 2020

Sometimes what’s on the inside is even more glorious than the out. As with this tulip that I photographed as the sun was shining through it. Making the petals almost seem transparent. The anthers on the stamen are ripe with pollen waiting for the bees to alight and spread the yellow gold dust. Reminding me […]
