Our Wrens are proud parents of 3 tiny babies. The mother and father are diligently flying back and forth to feed the hungry little mouths I see rising above the small hole in the bird house. Their chorus of 'peeps' can be heard on the deck and in the yard as the parents fly close.
Note: the photos of Mom and Dad Wren in my 'Birds' album nest building in the small white house. I tried to photograph the babies from the deck, however, the hole is way to small and it is so dark inside the bird house that I was unable to get a good shot. A good shot is not worth the upset that the parents and the babies would have if I got very close to the bird house.
A very good friend of mine, and she knows to whom I speak, told me over a month ago, that I should take one hour a day when I returned home from school, to do something I liked. So, daily, I do just that. With Bastet my Garden Goddess, and camera in hand, we either walk in the woods where Bastet climbs trees, leaps after bugs and birds, or we just sit and take in the wonders of nature and have a peaceful time to ourselves.
This week a beautiful Mourning Dove seemed to taunt Bastet by flying everywhere around her, from the roof, to the deck just above where she was seated. Saturday I had a little friend help with the removal of river stones and transplanting plants. I added a memorial to mother eagle, Lady Legacy, who perished a little over a year ago after being struck by a plane.
Each week I upload what we have experienced during that our daily hour together, and this is our peace we share with your: this is our.....Woodland Hill. Thank you my dear friend for restoring some peace to my life.
Friday evening Bastet and I took a stroll outside and found ourselves in a nice quiet spot in the backyard. While Bastet stalked, chirped, climbed and leaped I remained sitting or laying in the cool grass, listening to the sounds and watching the sights as the moon rose above us. I took photos from that position, including one of the moon. We spent several hours enjoying the fresh air and the beauty of nature.
