The cool air drew me outside today. I’ve been under the weather lately, but this mid-November morning brought me healing energy, for which I am most grateful.
I’m also grateful for my friend, Ruthie Mae. She’s my pretty dog who recently turned eight years old. She’s one of a kind and I sure do love her. She helps me in lots of ways.
Ruthie helps to get me outside and whether we sit on the deck for a view and breath of fresh air or take a walk, being outdoors is healing.
Since the arrival of fall, my backyard birds have changed. The Cardinals stayed until a couple of weeks ago, so I’m not sure where they are now, but many of the birds that spent the summer here went on to warmer places.
The Mourning Doves stuck around and lately, they come in large flocks to forage amongst leaves, grass and fallen seeds.
The temperatures have dropped. I decided to add sunflower seeds to the bird station after having changed over to a simple offering of smaller seeds, along with fresh water in the bird baths.
Within ten minutes, my yard once again became a little haven, very much like I would imagine Heaven.
Sometimes, I’ll be standing at the door looking out from my window, and just like in a fairytale movie, all sorts of pretty birds fly into the yard at once. Often times, a larger bird will slowly glide over us too. I usually see a shadow first and then a wonderful view as it circles above.
I am always captured by a magical sense of awe when my yard comes alive with color and sounds and movement.
Thank you for visiting Green Healing Notes. I hope you enjoy a view of these beautiful moments I’ve tried to capture.
