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
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~

There are certain times in life that seem to challenge us to overcome something. To not just overcome, but survive and prevail. Perhaps you are in one of these times now. If you are truly living, life just tends to bring its shares of shadows amidst the dancing and the joy. The peaks and the valleys that change sometimes without warning.
Maybe you have been there before. If so, what strengths or resources did you draw from to help you not only get through, but survive? What hard-learned lessons were gleaned from the past that you can build on now to help you claim victory? You have the power.

It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult. ~ Seneca
” 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!
