This week, I’m guest blogging on A Writer’s Garden. If you’re curious to see what I’ve been harvesting (birdwatching wise) from my garden, please join me there for a short post that will inspire you to delight in the feathered fruit in your backyard or local park.

The kiss of the sun for pardon
The song of the birds for mirth,
One is nearer God’s heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.

    1. Thanks, Damon. It’s a PowerShot SX60 HS 16.1 mega pixels Canon. I don’t know what all that means. But I do know I’m thankful for a husband who encouraged my blogging/writing/photography aspirations by surprising me with it.

  1. Lovely πŸ™‚ The birds always make me smile when they come visiting my feeders πŸ™‚

    Happy Friday my Friend…Hope you have a Delightful Week End πŸ™‚

  2. Beautiful pictures, sweet friend. And there is something about being in a garden. When I’m in the right frame of mind, I actually find weeding cathartic. Somehow though, my boys never want to join me in that task. πŸ˜‰

    Have a great weekend, friend!

    1. Thank you, dear Jeanne. I’m with you about weeding being cathartic. It’s also a good time to dream up novel scenes and plots. <3 By the way, it's better to have no help than to have some of your favorite perennials accidentally pulled out—just saying. πŸ™‚

    1. Supper was in danger of being late today because the robins, jays, and starlings were feasting on mountain ash berries; I wanted to take pictures instead of cook. I resisted for the most part. πŸ™‚ <3

    1. Thank you, sweet friend. Doves are sensitive to their surroundings. They rarely sit in the lower branches of our trees. Doves are like the Holy Spirit in that we need to be still in order to hear them. <3

      1. As soon as I saw the picture of those doves, I could hear them in my mind. I love your analogy of the Holy Spirit and being able to hear Him when it’s quiet ❀️

        1. I believe I learned this idea from R.T. Kendall who was interviewed on an old Focus on the Family broadcast about his book: Total Forgiveness. Dr. James Dobson interviewed him. I think of that interview whenever the doves are cooing. <3

  3. Hi Wendy! I’m sending you a big hug <3 Sorry for being out of touch as of late! I'm going to head over and read your guest post, as well as signing up for your newsletter. Congratulations on being included in the book! How exciting!

    1. Hugs back at you, blogging friend. Thank you for stopping by here and at Catherine’s blog. I hope you’re having a wonderful Thanksgiving Weekend too. I’m loving this sunny weather; our island climate is mild and marvelous–isn’t it? <3
