They came back


On my birtday 2009 these beautiful little yellow and black birds came to the tree in front of my house. I only saw them on that one day and I felt that it was a gift to me from somewhere or someone greater than I know. This year on my birthday the little yellow and black birds did not appear. I remarked how they were missing and did not give it much thought.


Yesteday I saw a little yellow bird in tree outside my offce window. He was checking out the food in the feeder and flew away. I guessed that the food must be low so I rushed out to fill it up. Of course grabbing my camera on the way out.


The little yellow and black birds were back!!!! They were all singing a beautiful song and eating seeds from the tree out in my front yard. I am so excited I got some pictures this time. I beleive they are a type of Warbler... a Goldfinch? If anyone knows or has a guess please tell me your thoughts!!!

Hello Mr. Sunshine....



Yesterday we saw the sun for the first time in many days, actually a couple of weeks here at my home in Visalia. It was so pretty and his friend Ms. Blue Sky was with him too. Aww, so so sweet. How I have missed you Mr. Sunshine.

To enjoy the sunshine I walked out back during the afternoon yesterday. In the glorious sunshine I surveyed my lost plants that could not stand the cold temps and the abundance of rain. That was a tab bit sad. In the gray gloom I had not noticed how bad some of the little guys were looking. The good news is the sun will come out again and in the spring some plants will come back and some will have to be replaced. I love to plant so it's another reason to dig in the dirt but sad to see my little friends looking so sad.

This Winter has been harsh and I have not done a good job of protecting my plants. I was much better last year. What I have learned is when everyone said I was over doing it when it came to covering the plants and bringing them in to protect them in last winter, I wasn't over doing it. I should have looked at their yards and known they did not know what they were talking about. I should trust my instincts. They are good. Why do I second guess myself?

For your viewing pleasure I am adding a photo of the blue sky at the end of the day. I am happy I took the photo because this morning the FOG rolled in and we are back to the GRAY. I won't complain because in a few months it will be 100+ outside. I am happy the AC is not running 24-7 and the air is sort of clean... as clean as it can be in this valley.

I would like to leave you with a quote that I love..."I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific. "- Lily Tomlin -

I love this.... True story!

Enjoy your day!
