Goodbye

Bird on Wire front see you next spring

Textured with kk_touch of texture 1 for sharing with Texture Tuesday

As we head into the Thanksgiving Holiday,  my wish is for you to have a blessed meal with family and friends.

Sharing one of my new free graphics with you:

coffee morning greeting

You can download it here or by clicking the picture above. Your downloaded one won’t have my watermark.

I have many things to be thankful for, and included is the opportunity to meet new people through the various blogs and people who stop by The Patch to say hi. Thanks for visiting. 🙂

Tea quote

As we head into the Holiday Season of Thanksgiving, it’s always a time for remembering all our thankfulness.

Give thanks to the Lord,
Call on his name;
Make known among the nations what he has done.
 
1 Chronicles 16:8

Or perhaps a cup of Tea on a Winter’s Morn.

As you can see, I’m already missing my summertime flowers so guess the fake ones will have to do until Springtime rolls around again. 🙂

What I’m up to:

  • During this month of November, I’m doing a Bible Study of Thanksgiving that is online with GoodMorningGirls.org. It just started on November 11th so there’s still time to grab their study materials and join in.
  • I’m also working on getting together to share a Peabea’s Photography and Craft Patch Potpourri Photography Challenge meme. I enjoy visiting and sharing with other Photography meme’s each week so thought I’d start one as well.  But more on that later. 🙂
  • Just finished reading The Book Thief. My book reviews that need updated are on my writing site at peabea.net

Some freebies I’ve encountered along the way as I peruse the web and fun sites to check out that you might like.

Perseverance

hens chicks TT copy

Such a hardy, interesting plant/flower. At the end of last Summer, by mistake, I sprayed all my flowers with weed killer thinking I was spraying insect killer. Some of the plants, I wasn’t so concerned about since they were annuals anyway, but I’d had these plants for quite a few years when a co-worker friend gave me a start, and I was sure they were done. The looked really sick, and even this Spring they looked not so great, but little by little, they came came back.

Just like people, you can’t keep a good, hardy person down. They’ll perk back up after a fall even if it takes a bit to recover. I know some people that are like that. You think they’re defeated for sure, but they just keep going, and they keep going with a good heart and spirit.

Sharing with Texture Tuesday . I edited my picture with Kim Klassen’s golden texture.

Have a great week…and thanks for stopping by.

Baby Robins are Born

DSC00147

 

If you followed my other post about the nest on my hose hanger, the babies are finally here. Mommy Robin has faithfully sat on those 4 eggs, and now has four babies. Finally, she got off long enough so I could capture this picture. Maybe I can get a video or other photos of her feeding the babies.

I’m just hoping they can fly away soon and I can have the use of my hose now that it’s Spring and things need hosed down. ~smiles~

Happy Spring

Spring at our House ‘n Miss Robin

Loving that Spring has arrived and the warmer mornings. Nothing like early morning sunrise and a fresh brewed cup of coffee or brewed tea.

Miss Robin has decided to favor us with a nest of eggs on our hose hanger…bad part is now that Spring has arrived and I like to clean off the patio and other uses for the hose…it is otherwise occupied for a bit. Not to fear though, we have another hose out front to use or to attach on the back, but really not wanting to disturb Miss Robin. This picture has two eggs (a beautiful blue in color), but she is now sitting on 4 eggs and won’t stay off the nest long enough for me to get another picture. I also used this picture for my April 30th Texture Tuesday (found at my other website http://peabea.net)

Bubble Fun

Springtime Bubble Fun

I like raw out of the camera mostly. Grandbabykins was playing with bubbles since it is starting to turn warm and there was just enough wind that it blew the bubbles for him without even having to wave the bubble wand. Enjoy!! and as always, love when you leave a comment on here to say hi!!

Happy Spring and Easter,

Peabea

 

 

Scenery

These were taken (raw out of the camera) on a walk last Summer.

A dried leaf hanging from the tree that I thought looked interesting.
A little bird that stopped by the water's edge to see what we were up to and then he flew away.
Just thought the light coming through the trees and the shade made the water in this area look dark and gloomy.

The Artist


Outside is being painted today…and the color of choice is white
The paint is falling down and covering the ground
Some branches of the trees, just a touch here and there
The artist is Mother Nature

Upon waking you see a clean white sheet
The flakes sparkle as they drift down
Lightly covering all that is on the ground
No tracks, no marks can be seen
The snow has washed the earth clean once again

Then the hustle and bustle of life begins
Cars driving by
People walking
Animals playing here and there

Slowly the atmosphere, gives a brownish hue
Covering the wonderful white that was there
Like the influences in life
Dirtying her up once again

Patiently we wait each day
To see what colors will be displayed
By the artist that is painting our world
Today will it be grey, white or the wonderful Green
That only Spring time can bring
