When The Woods Spring To Life #2

Scroll down to content

It’s such a joyous time to see and hear the birds in the trees filled with blossoms before the leaves all come out.

When walking in the woods many take a little offering along for these hungry travelers. He is more than likely headed further north, as I don’t usually see too many Grosbeaks around where I live except for at migration times.

We couldn’t just let the birds enjoy the blossoms, we also had to stop and enjoy the spring blossoms as we walked through the woods.

Since I started taking photos quite often, I find that I don’t have many recent photos of myself, as I’m usually the one behind the camera, so I’m trying to remedy that.

It’s almost June, and this is perhaps the second time that I have gone without wearing a coat.IMG_2717 TI copy.jpg

I enjoy taking photos of those who like having there pictures taken. It was a beautiful day to be in the woods. I found someone to accompany me, giving my hubby a little break.

What a glorious day it was to be out and about.

I’m thankful to see the beginning of another spring season and I’m also thankful God willing, to be reaching a milestone birthday this year as I approach 60.

I’m eternally thankful for My Creator’s Creation and the many benefits it awards me. Stay tuned for Part 3 of The Woods Spring To Life. In the mean time try to spend some time outdoors whether it is hot, cold, rainy or sunny, it will do wonders for you that no pill can ever do.

Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth!
Sing out the honor of His name;
Make His praise glorious.
Say to God,
“How awesome are Your works!
Through the greatness of Your power
Your enemies shall submit themselves to You.
All the earth shall worship You
And sing praises to You;
They shall sing praises to Your name

Psalm 66:1- 4

  1. This is great Leola, nice to see some pics of you too. I haven’t seen the rose breasted grosbeak yet, normally they would be back by now. They nest around here but I haven’t been able to get a picture of the male yet, only the female. Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Thanks Steve, I hardly ever see them so it’s always a treat when I do. I was so surprise to also see one in the back yard …this only happens at migration times, so they must be headed north!!

      1. I hope they are on the way, they usually arrive on May 15 or 16. They are quite punctual that way, but everything is so late this year. Have a great evening Leola!

      2. Everything seems to be a bit off this year. Usually I find male Cardinals very skittish, but while I was out the other day, they were practically following me around and posing for the camera 😃 that is very unusual. I also saw an Indigo Bunting in my backyard, very beautiful and awesome….my first time seeing on, but very unusual to be in my back yard. Probably making a rest stop in its migration travels. Have a wonderful evening Steve.

      3. Wow….I was at a loss for words 😄running to get my camera, but by the time I got it he was just flying away….. It was still pretty awesome to see.

      4. Hey, that’s just like me, the best shots are always when my camera isn’t with me. Well, not all the time but it does happen often.😄

      5. Oh yes, I remember that outing you had recently without your camera. It’s even worse when you have the camera but miss getting any good shots…. Will share in a post soon.😢😢

      6. Yes, I have had that experience too. I thought the focus was perfect and I was wrong! That was for a pileated woodpecker. Lots of them around here but trying to get close enough isn’t easy sometimes. I’m still trying.
