I haven’t had a lot of camera time lately so it’s been a while since I’ve had any postings.
Well, finally got to spend a day out. These are taken at the Botanical Garden in Naples Florida.
So many of my northern family and friends are very tired of snow and cold. Way too much of it. So I hope these colors, blooming plants and sunshine can bring some relief from my eye to them.
I found two catepillars in the field the other day and brought them to the back porch to observe. Was able to watch one wander down and was able to direct to a spot to watch.
Blue birds have been flocking to the bird bath around 5 – 6 pm. Can say with certainty that there is success with bringing the bluebird back to this environment with boxes for them to nest in. Have a couple of bluebird boxes made by the local bluebird society, but have several boxes made by my Dad hanging on fence posts and trees.
Moving the bird bath/ frog habitat to the end of the front porch and outside the dining room window allows perfect viewing for the birds coming to drink and refresh themselves.
When i was young a neighbor hybredized iris’s. I’m fortunate to have these.

Sharing this as I think this going to be a great event/day!
Taking inspiration from a friend of mine, Lynne Medsker I have created a word cloud using wordle. And like her, I don’t do resolutions, but I do see these words being prominent in the coming year.
I’m looking forward to spending some more winter time in the warmth of the south. The first grandchild will present herself around the first of March. The hubby will retire!!! There will be preparation on our property as we get it ready for the market to downsize. And this will be the hubby’s last winter in the cold as we will both be in the south next winter together.
That’s a LOT of life changes in that list.
Through it all, the camera will be journaling the process as it always has. I hope to hear from you along the way in the form of comments.
Until next time…
