A Lovely March Morning

Hello! Would you like to come with me while reminiscing on a walk I took in March? πŸ™‚ If so, keep reading!

It all started when I opened the door to see this gorgeous animal grazing in the woods.

And then another showed up!

Then I walked to the clearing so I could watch the sunrise.

The clouds were really odd that morning.

I couldn’t help but get a lot of photos of them!

The horizon looked as if it was on fire.


After the sun rose, I went in search of wildlife and flowers.

I found some! Obviously.

I don’t know what these are, but they were growing on what appeared to be a small tree.

I really like them, whatever they are. πŸ™‚

I don’t know what these are either, but they were growing on trees. πŸ˜€

More daffodils! (I posted a bunch in February, hence the “more.”)

Different color ones too. πŸ™‚

Three different colors!

Sun filtering through the petals. ❀

A baby cardinal! The parents were around protecting the little guy.

These were on a tree in the woods. I wonder if it is an apple. It came out before the dogwood did so it wasn’t that.

And this concludes my walk on this lovely March morning. πŸ˜€ Thanks for joining me. πŸ™‚

My March 2019 In Photos

Just a quick note, I’ve had a lot going on this past week. I’m behind in reading posts and responding to your lovely comments here. I’m slowly working on it. πŸ™‚ In the meantime, here are some photos! I took a lot of photos in March. Also, coming soon will be A Lovely March Morning, and A March Day At Grandma’s. πŸ™‚ ❀

My allergies started in March. I was sniffing and sneezing a lot. Jackie curled up on my bed and went to sleep. And then I sneezed. I looked around to see if I disturbed her, and… I think it’s safe to say I did. πŸ˜† She looked disgusted with me. She wanted to be in the room with me to snooze, but my allergies weren’t having it. Sorry girl.

The dandelions were back!

So pretty. πŸ™‚

Daffodil! With a little spider hiding underneath. πŸ™‚

A robin! I don’t see many of these around here. I used to see them at my grandma’s though.

My tulips came up! Sadly, they seemed to go dormant before the bloom opened? I don’t know what happened. It was strange. The flower shriveled up and then the leaves stuck around for a while before doing the same. I dug into the pot to make sure the bulbs were okay, and it seemed healthy. I wonder when I bought them, they were on sale and meant for being displayed. I’m wondering if last year they were forced to bloom, and needed this year to gain energy for next year. I’m new to tulips so I don’t know.

Lovely little flower. ❀

Wildflowers! I like the blue color of these.

Vibrant. πŸ™‚

And the veins in the petals of these. ❀

Oh dear! πŸ˜€ Haha. I surprised this one when outside. Oops!

I like silhouetting things against a sunrise or sunset.

This was experimental. I tried to get the nebula in the constellation Orion. This was the result. πŸ™‚

The moon and branches! The branches are easy to see though sadly, haha.

And this is another installment of a Month In Photos! Hope to see you later for the other parts to this. πŸ™‚

Amphibians, Reptiles, And Opossums… Oh Dear!

I love wildlife. πŸ˜€ Here is a sampling of what I’ve seen:

Box turtle bathing in the mud hole.

Ribbon snake in the leaves.

Salamander in a dustpan – I found this little guy under my cat’s water dish, hiding from my cats. So naturally, I rescued him and took photos.

Lizard lounging on logs.

Frog just hanging out.

Phillip the opossum. He visited enough that I gave him a name.Β πŸ˜‚

Oh dear…

Literally. When my mom went outside to get the newspaper, she was greeted by a herd of deer. There were four, but I only got close-ups of three before they ran into the woods.

I wonder if they were saying, “Oh, humans!” πŸ˜‚

Thirst

This is my first time participating in the Stream of Consciousnesses Saturday (on a Sunday, at that! Sorry I’m late seeing the prompt… πŸ˜…) Here is my first attempt at it. It’s harder than I thought it would be. I’m not used to not editing what I write; the urge to backspace is insane! πŸ˜‚ Anyway, here it is, along with a photo I shared a while back that happens to go with my theme:

As the Psalmist, my soul pants for the Living Water. I follow Him beside the still waters and He gives me drink. He knows that I thirst, and He doesn’t give me oil instead of water; He knows my soul and what I crave. He doesn’t hide the water from me, but lets me drink freely, until I am satisfied. Praise be to God for not holding back from me!
