Beauty is around us but we forget to appreciate!

Thank you Ryan for taking these pictures and reminding us to enjoy the view. It only lasts a short while…

Summer has come and passed..

Summer 2021 was an exceptional mixture of sun and rain.

Regular visitors,

unusual ones,

and unseen ones came by. One foot stool disappeared …until Curtis went looking and found it in the bush.

A bear had left a few claw imprints.

Looking out the window, seeing a dragonfly, a bumble bee and a humming bird simultaneously sharing a meal at the same bush made me wonder why humans cannot follow their example…

Sunsets were amazing:)

And now, fall has arrived, as astonishing as ever!

Winter friends

So all winter, Hoppy behaved during the day:)

But then, we realize what Hoppy was doing all these nights…

From this,

To this…

So we did have to bring Hoppy to a new home, R & R Classic Cars lot. The sad thing is that when we left him, he did not hop away but rather stayed there looking at us seemingly saying : Are you deserting me?

Will Roger see him tomorrow???

And then, we hear one of our beautiful pileated woodpeckers…

pecking our chimney… Mating call?

Ah well, that is the price you pay for enjoying their company ha!
