Time To Relax.......For A Minute..

In the summer I love sitting on our deck and looking out into my garden. I do not necessarily have the best looking flowers or landscape, but what I do have is wildlife.
There is something peaceful and calming about looking at nature that puts a smile on my face. Maybe it is because as a child my grandparents loved it too. Camping trips we would look for birds and feed the chipmunks and squirrels right out of out hands. My grandparents taught me to appreciate what we have in our own backyards and respect and admire what nature has to offer. I give you some pictures of my garden (my second favorite spot to ponder life) and the beauty that I see.






I was bird watching and sitting in peace and quiet until my 'shadows' came outside and decided to do some bird watching of their own................so much for my peace and quiet!


'Baja' is my little dog with a big voice, she will talk to anyone and anything!


'Rodman' is my old man and will only talk when the squirrels are out or when he wants to come in. He now has us trained!
