Weekend Views


 I hope you had a good weekend, I spent most of mine away from the media, computer, I went out to to see the sights. The weather had warmed considerably the needle edging towards 90 so it was a good time to look for water and enjoy the company of birds.

I love the slow roll and glide of the white pelicans that look like they do it for sheer enjoyment, just because they can.


bees heavy with pollen on mustard

 Grebes paired up and formed hearts with their heads and necks then dove and disappeared, surfacing elsewhere, their calls, strange and wonderful.

 Hang in there now :)

Bird song was everywhere in the deep shade, HAPPILY no snakes.


 The dragons were out...

  wild radish.......we saw wild celery too, a regular salad bowl of if you were a forager.



 and naturally, my favorite, the heron.



I went out at 4 a.m. to look for meteors but I was so tired I only lasted about 20 minutes, I didn't see any did you?

Here's to a good week all...coffee cup raised...........clink :)

  4. Wow...what a weekend for you. Some of my favorites, too--like Cinder, the grebes, herons and pelicans. Just beautiful!!!!

    No meteors here--partly cloudy skies, but we have sunshine today and that helps after 13 degrees F last night! in April!!!

    So, yes, I'm practically hugging your photos here to absorb the spring warmth!!
