Absolutely love this sign.
Went on a great trail run this morning.
There’s nothin’ like a jog through the woods. Remember to take some time, go outside & enjoy nature.
These two were fighting, but at times it looked just like they were dancing🦒🦒
My camera cannot do justice to the full double rainbow I saw yesterday evening. Everyone around me was marveling over it and taking photos. You just had to be thereto appreciate it. #natureswonders #rainbow
Another throwback while I still can... 😆 Stunning view of the Olympic Mountains from Hurricane Ridge 😍📸
Going back to last Monday when the housework was complete, all bar one load of washing which was still tumbling around and Beau was sound asleep. The sun was shining and our new plants that we had dug into the earth were in desperate need of a drink. I am no Gardner, my thumbs are missing that green tinge, although I do like to try my best. I find it so relaxing and my mind wanders as I potter about out in the fresh air tending to our somewhat of a “rustic” garden.
It was just as I had yanked, with great force, two grassy plants from the ground that I heard it; the sweetest little sound. Not entirely sure where it was coming from I dropped my shovel and allowed my ears to guide me.
I found myself at the back of our carport, where Ben keeps piles of timber, wire and goodness knows what else! An old pallet leaning against the fence and my very neglected bicycle in front of that.
A blackbird darted out from behind and I found myself edging closer to the pallet. I had seen her foraging around in our garden on quite a number of occasions, her little tail flicking this way and that as she bounced across the yard. I had thought that she must have found a place to house her little babies somewhere close by.
As I reached the pallet, there they were, 3 little baby birds tucked up tight. Their little eyes not even open to the world yet.
It was then that my own little baby woke. As I picked him up from his cot, his warm, soft skin against my cheek I told him about the babies I had just seen.
We quietly made our way over to them, allowing Mama birdie the space she needed before darting off once again.
As we peered in through the gaps I knew that he had seen them for a little smile came across his face. A soft little sigh followed. Not wanting to overstay our welcome we “ta-ta’d” the babies and made our way inside.
My heart melted as Beau continued to point his little finger out towards them, softly repeating “babies, babies, babies.” Nature is a magical thing and I so look forward to exploring it even more through the eyes of a child.
Since it’s SO cold here in the Netherlands, I’m trying to keep myself warm by looking at photos and videos from our vacation in Hawaii.
Behold. The beautiful Napali Coastline of the island of Kauai. As you can see, I’m pointing the finger to the hubs. And I keep telling myself: “please lean to the left you do not want to fall down. I repeat. You DO NOT want to fall down” 😂😂
I could seriously hike the islands all day every day! 💙🌺
Did you know that iguanas have a third eye?! 👀👁️
Also known as a parietal eye, it is used to alert iguanas of aerial threats. Unlike the other two, the third eye is quite simple in its physiology and can only detect changes in light and darkness. But that is more than enough to evade predators! Cool! 🦎
