Change of Seasons

I see you gazing into the silver light,

before taking flight,

Gold finches, collecting grassy threads

to build their nest,

a place to rest at night.

 

Hope you too are enjoying the signs of the change of seasons. Thank you for stopping by today~.    Terre’s Blog – Women of All Seasons

Hairy Woodpecker, USA (3)Here’s a little female Hairy Woodpecker, crooked beak and all, who has taken up residence at our house with her mate this winter. About anytime you look out you will see her. Have had other resident birds before, but not woodpeckers. Fun to watch and always learning. Maybe she had her beak where it shouldn’t have been? Happy day & birding~

Pileated Woodpecker ( Dryocopus pileatus )

” Hey… You need a bigger suet block! ” 

This big bird surprised us today with a visit to our backyard feeding station. He actually made it onto the suet block by wrapping himself around it. But he made it work. There were actually a pair of woodpeckers, but only one was tempted by the bird food.

Have a great day & thank you for stopping by today!

Poetry: First Snowfall

Terre's Blog - Women of All Seasons (1)

First Snowfall 

When evening falls
casting shadows
across blankets of downy snow.

The cottontail rabbit
hops ever so softly
from the brush.

Sounds soften all around.
The world is all a hush.
When evening falls
casting shadows
across the snowy ground.

Backyard Visitor

tch c2019(9)

I can feel and see the signs that Fall is on the way. But we’re still having the hot summer days, the last of summer. This backyard visitor is enjoying a summer bath. Might be one of the last ones before he takes off for warmer climes. Think I’ll just hang out on the porch and enjoy what is left of these warm days. Before you know it, the wind will blow, leaves will fall, and then snow will fall. Hope wherever you are, you see something simple today that makes you slow down, notice, and enjoy.

Thank you for visiting!
