Looking up from my lawn chair

I was sitting out in the sun today, taking time out to reflect on the week, and this little guy was making a fuss hanging out in a tree overhead.

Hanging out looking for bugs

Soon after, a friend joined him

And then there were two

And then there were two

I got to watch them chase each other around the tree

Around the corner

The milkweed lesson

I love to work in my yard.  I find it to be calming and restorative as well as invigorating.  Today, it was a windy day, strangely chilly for South Florida this time of year.   We have milkweed in the butterfly garden and the wind was picking up milkweed pods and scattering them haphazardly about the yard.

I began to think how they are picked up and slung around, bruised and sometimes broken, torn into pieces, yet they flutter about doing good, throwing seed to and fro.

It reminded me of us.  We can learn from mistakes, grow from struggles, keep the faith and still yield some good fruit that is beneficial to others.  Nature always teaches if we just stop to observe.

Freeloaders

I wanted to share this with you because I find so much happiness in watching it. My husband is a fishing guide and every day when he comes in, he has some friends that hang around waiting for handouts. They seem to know when he is coming before I do and stay right with him until they get some dinner. I hope you enjoy!

This old guy begins to wait patiently for my husband to come in from fishing

I think he heard the boat coming before I did

I think he heard the boat coming before I did

About the time I can hear it coming, he takes off in flight towards it

About the time I can hear it coming, he takes off in flight towards it

soaring along, food on his mind

soaring along, food on his mind

He finds the boat and paddles along behind it all the way in

He finds the boat and paddles along behind it all the way in

Now he is joined by a friend

Now he is joined by a friend

and then there were three, eagerly awaiting their dinner
