"All know that the drop merges into the ocean but few know that the ocean merges into the drop."

Anyway, that's what the birds are saying.

I love this time of year. Duncan and I began dating in the spring and married in the fall. They have always been our favorite times of the years.

Never to hot or to cold.

As I was checking in with some of my favorite blog sights, and because it's spring, I just have to mention the #1 on my list.
Red and the Peanut

The reason I love this blog is the obvious joy in what Kelly is doing. And the pictures. It is like an educational visit every time I go there. I'm not a bird watcher, per say, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate what Kelly is showing. I'm a natural nature watcher.

It's like I get to go on her bird watches with her. I can hear the sounds of nature and feel the human noise sluff away into a silence that hears the voice of nature alone.

I'm always so amazed at the talents and interests of the people at these places I go to in my blog time. When I read their posts, I always wish I could sit down with them and just talk. Find out what lead them to the loves in their lives, what drives their passions, and where do they think they get the welling up of their creativity. Did they have to work at it or was it just ...there?

Thank you Kelly for the joy you share with every post.


  1. I tried to hyperlink the Red and the Peanut sight but I guess I don't understand how that is done. It shows up on the draft, but then it doesn't on the post. What am I doing wrong? Does anyone know how to do this?

  2. ...Linda...what a surprise to read your kind words (especially sweet when coming from your pen because you write so well and go beyond a "normal" sentence, coming in from a different angle, which makes the reading interesting). I always check in on your poetry site.

    I do links a lot, and it sounds like you're doing it right. I just highlight the word, click on the link icon, copy the site address and paste it in the field, and finally click the OK button. Thank you for pointing me out. Birds inspire me with their song, beauty, diligence and sweetness...and I love connecting with other like-minded people through blogging.

  3. "Spring is in the air."

    I think that's juniper pollen. *achoo*!
