FREE TIME

BEAUTY OF NATURE.jpg
BEAUTY OF NATURE.jpg (61.46 KiB) Viewed 7151 times
I love having free time twenty-four, seven—time spent sleeping, or on the computer, but my most enjoyable hours are spent looking out my window viewing wildlife in the courtyard.

Watching my Peony plants grow heavy with large buds ready to burst into the warm sunlight with huge blooms having the loveliest fragrance is a true delight.

The Mimosa tree was baron of leaves just yesterday, but today it's full of new greenery. I love the flower of the Mimosa—so delicate and fragile in appearance, yet airy, with a beautiful shade of lavender.

Nature is at her best in springtime. Time is on her side bringing forth a new generation of God’s creatures, developing shrubs, flowers, and trees.

As birds fly in to snatch bits of dog food, or drink and bathe in the fountain, its like my own private movie screen. Many species of birds gather in preparation to bond and mate. But I find the Cardinal to be the most beautiful of all. They seem to have good manners showing love and courtesy to each other. Their natural instincts tell them when it’s time to settle in for the night. At exactly seven o'clock their playful activity ends, and they all disappear from my courtyard.

As the sun sets, nature settles in for a quiet time of rest, somehow knowing tomorrow will bring another busy day of growth and wonderment.

I thank God for His glorious world of beauty and awe.

DEAR EVA, THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENT. I WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO BE HERE , WE WOULD SIT OUT IN THE COURT YARD AND WATCH THE ACTION OF THE BIRDS, BEE'S AND BUTTERFLYS. YESTERDAY WAS QUIET A SHOW, PHILLIP WAS CLEANING OUT THE GRAIN BIN THAT HE STORES THE HORSE GRAIN IN, WELL, MICE HAD MADE A LARGE HOME INSIDE THE BIN. HE MOVED IT AND A LARGE BLACK SNAKE WAS RESIDING UNDER THE BIN. NOW, PHILLIP DID A LITTLE DANCE TO GIVE THE BLACK SNAKE WIDE BIRTH TO MAKE HIS GET AWAY. I WAS WATCHING THIS SHOW FROM MY KITCHEN WINDOW AND KNEW HE WAS HAVING A FEW SURPRISES. :lol: GOD BLESS YOU. LOVE BRENDA
