Feathered Friends – Goldfinch

Goldfinch on my Cone Flowers

Echinacea, Cone flowers should be left standing after their blooms fade because birds will eat the seeds. Guess what- it’s true! These were taken from a distance so please excuse the blur but I sure was excited to see this colorful visitor. These Morning Glories are on my neighbor’s fence and I love them. I did plant them on a trellis so their grew around my front door years ago. They were lovely but the bees were fond of them also- walking through buzzing bees to get in my front door was not as fun. Fall is upon us – seed gathering time. Writing this blog really helps me to focus on the beauty around me.

Mystery Plants and other Photo Fun

Last year I was given daylilies….so this year each bloom is a surprise. The Geese are floating along the French Broad river in Asheville NC.


Egg Salad

Not the picture you expected? The title comes from memories of Easters past. This is around the time our lovely decorated hard-boiled eggs would become egg salad. An experience in letting go to break the shell and put it in the garbage to use the inside.

I found this egg shell in the backyard and just let it be.  Eggs, in their own right, appear right at the spring equinox if the chickens or birds are left to their own devices. Chickens do not lay when there is less than 12 hours of sunlight, so the eggs start coming right at spring/ easter.

Abundance is finding precious little packages of protein showing up after a long and hungry winter.
