In Spring and summer, there are certain things that create emotion.
I don't know what makes us so melancholy in the Spring and summer.
It just happens.
For instance, THIS fellow makes me both smile and get angry at the same time.
(He eats up all my bird seed, ALL DAY LONG!!):
And this little fluffy chipping sparrow twittering on the branches
just makes me happy:
The eloquence of a Columbine, makes me wonder about the miracles of Nature:
This was one of the farm dogs at the Alpaca farm I recently visited.
His sad, loyal eyes makes me want a dog again. Longing.
But I can't....I just can't:
A goldfinch in flight
just takes my breath away:
And seeing bright yellow in the trees after a barren, cold winter lifts my spirits up
more than I can describe:
If he is FLUFFY??....
Well, it makes me darn right GIDDY:
The bright greens of hosta leaves and the delicate blue forget-me-nots
make me smile in wonder:
Finding a garden moose for my garden at a rummage sale for $4.00??
Practically DRUNK with joy!:
And spying a hummingbird aiming for spring blossoms?
Thankful to the angels in heaven:
May your day be full of this season's emotions....
and gratefulness to Mother Nature
for the joy the seasons brings us.
What a great This and That Collection, I especially enjoyed the bird photos.
You have got some spectacular shots here....my favorites are the hummingbird and the goldfinch in flight. I can see why you bought that moose! He is delightful!
oh wow great captures of the goldfinch and humming bird in flight...squirrels often make me smile...
Your in flight shots are breath taking! And the others are too, but these are really magnificent.
I am never disappointed when i come here to visit. these are all miracles of nature and all so very beautiful. that silly little fluffy yellow birds face made me laugh out loud, the expression is so cute and the one in flight is breathtaking. the dog i want to kiss and hug on . great post AGAIN
forgot to say you have wonderful camera skills, keep snapping
oh, every single one of these photos is blissful and beautiful. just gorgeousness.
i get melancholy in fall. i miss my homeland of Wisconsin and the cooler temps and beautiful turning leaves...
Scenes to make you happy.
So lovely, once again!
All these pictures are so lovely.The Goldfinch in flight is spectacular.
That chipmunk picture is just fantastic. I know just what you mean about these seasons and the emotions they bring.
I am speechless...your photos and words say it all!! Thank you for sharing and just being YOU!!
Excellent shots! I loved the goldfinches, regular guests here, too. Now I have to go build a garden moose. THE BOSS was reading over my shoulder.
Awwww! What beautiful photos. Chipmunks will fill up their cheeks and run back and forth unloading them all day long. I know it can be frustrating when you want the birds to have it..Ha! Those Goldfinch photos are so awesome!! And to catch one in flight like that is beautiful!! I love those tiny Hummingbirds but never see any out back here. They do light on the plants out front now and then so I'm told. Have great weekend Joan!!
what an awesome collage of pictures....i am trying to pick a favorite but i just can't, they are all soooooo beautiful. i do love the fluffy goldfinch, i have never seen them do that!!
i can so relate to the eating up of all your birdseed, my squirrels do that. i have a real love/hate relationship with them!!!
You have taken some fantastic shots this month again, not just in this set. I know I dont comment often, most times I look at your photos its from my phone and its hard to comment.
love love love that garden moose!!!! he's cute!!!!
Love that little garden moose! Too cute!!
These are the most lovely pictures! The goldfinch in flight is stunning! I wouldn't mind the chipmunk, tho. I could watch them all day. Love when they are so tame they eat out of your hand, but they can get greedy and run up your body in excitement--LOL! :)
Wow! Absolutely wonderful photos. I love chipmunks! They're adorable. And the shot of the flying goldfinch is great!
Great photos here. The hummingbird, the goldfinch in flight, and the others ~ just wonderful.
All such beautiful images.. but that goldfinch in flight is just amazing. As it the last hummer shot. Wonderful collection.
The pup makes me sad...but the moose makes me happy!
Your photos are so neat. You need to cultivate this hobby. Loved the chipmunk and the dog eyes is just wonderful.
Wow - each photo is a work of art!
I'm here from Smitten. Great job on the bird pics.
Fabulous photos - they made me smile too!
