For the Birds

Grateful for the birds which bring color, songs & chatter, and joy to our yard.


Grateful for the hummingbirds year round.

First morning light. How many birds do you see?



Coveys of doves come for their fill every day.
This one may appear to be shy

But she’s really quite bold.
Last week Ed was able to walk his bicycle within a few feet before she took to wing.


And, I’m grateful for the Finches that visit all year long.

I never dreamed my life would be entangled with fiber and the tools used to produce fibery items. When I bought a boat shuttle used in weaving Ed looked at it, decided to make a better one and the rest is history. For a decade he made shuttles, crochet hooks, knitting needles, until his spindles became so popular that he had to devote his time to making them, as well as Walking Wheels. Free time is spent reading, trying to coax food from the ground, and playing in the creek near our place. I love long walks and camping far from crowds. Playing a fiddle beside a stream or with good friends brings sweetness to my soul. Sundays are set aside for worshiping God with our small, Scotts Mills Friends Meeting where I am the preacher. A challenge that God uses to stretch me beyond what I think is possible!

  1. Beautiful! I think I see four in there – maybe? And I find that I am also grateful for my chickens – what a friend of mine calls “chicken TV”- it’s wonderful to just sit and watch them do their chickeny thing together.

    1. Yes, there are four!
      I recently read an article that said chickens know their name and as many as 10 names of the other chickens they’re with, plus many words!
