Hearing Hubby’s excited voice got my attention. He was babbling on about a cloud he had to capture. I saw him running out the door with his camera. In turn I grabbed my camera, joined him outside and began to shoot the exact cloud he was. What freedom to behold this wispy huge cloud in our skies. My soul soared.
Both of us began to shoot other clouds and when we found out we shot the exact same scene at the same time, we ended up giggling like kids as we excitedly showed one another what we both had captured. Hubby’s pictures within this post are the black and white ones. His heart lies with black and white photography.
That same day I did what I promised my roses I would do. I fertilized them. Concentrating on what I was doing and trying not to inhale the dust from what I was putting in my gardens, (not succeeding very well), I heard, “Amy, give me a smile!” And so while on my hands and knees I turned my head and grinned at Hubby who still had a camera in his hands. Unfortunately, I honestly didn’t like that particular picture of me, as I was caught in an awkward position. So I chose this one for you to see instead as to how I tend to my roses.
Even though I went to not one but two forests earlier that same day, I still had the itch to take more pictures. So I sat on our picnic bench and began to document what transpires in our backyard on a daily basis. We have one big happy family running about and eating while socializing with one another. In seeing all that action a huge grin could be seen on my face. I chilled.
There is even a waiting line to use one very busy feeder:
Being so far away and in deep shade I at least attempted:
Can’t forget one of the bunnies and squirrels:
Those squirrels make quite the show and are very popular around here with all of our cats. Rusty is so cute leaving me clutching my stomach in laughter at times as he runs from one window to the next keeping up with the squirrels outside. We have a few chipmunks running about as well, but I did not see them while I sat at our picnic bench. Those as well get our cats’ attention.
I even took pictures of Mama Groundhog but because she is on high alert due to the babies in her nest, I respectfully took pictures of her through our dining room window. I didn’t want to stress her out. I love the expression on her face.
I know many of you do not have what we do so I am sharing what my eyes see on a daily basis. We are so very fortunate to be surrounded by so much beauty and so many of Mother’s wildlife who trust us to make their home here and to eat the fruits available that exist on our land. Oh! Life can be good, so very very good!
May you be blessed for visiting with us today! Are you wondering why I titled this post, “Everlasting Life”?
