Nothing makes me calmer
than to watch
beloved Mourning Doves
on a day where
So, today, I have nothing but pictures of them for you.
Sit with your feet up, a warm cup of coffee and maybe your Snuggie..
let's take a look...
I love how they puff up to stay warm on the branch:
I love their tawny and golden feathers:
Many fly in,
And they just roost there, sometimes for a few hours at a time.
Just watching the busy, hectic world go by:
They roost in silence...sometimes hardly moving:
Sometimes, as daylight just happens
and I stumble out to the kitchen
to put on the coffee....
I look out my window towards the winter lake,
they are there, resting
and to greet me
And waiting patiently
at the feeders
to prod me to
fill them up for their breakfast:
My grown daughter teases me because I tell her the birds
I have proof.
I'd say this one is saying:
"Bring out the breakfast will you? I've been waiting for you to wake up for HOURS!"

January's theme is:
- The Retired One
- I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography. If you like my blog, PLEASE click on "follow this blog". Having a lot of followers reading my blog gives me incentive to continue to do photography and to continue to write. I also LOVE comments, so I encourage you to leave me a comment after you read my posts. Thanks everyone, for taking the time to read me!!
