Just as I was beginning to think I'd have a rhythm going in the garden, another storm passes through, messing up my plans. But an early morning walk in the yard revealed much beauty after a storm. One being the captured raindrops on the leaves of the hosta.
Another, reflections in the filled to the brim birdbath. I don't know about yours, but my birdbaths need constant filling, what with all the bathing going on. This young Blackbird delighted me for a few minutes dipping and splashing. There is always something to bring joy to me if I go looking for it with open eyes and open heart in my Open Bar of Joy.  Hoping today will bring some prolonged sunshine.


  1. Beautiful pictures! My birdbath is directly below the living room window, with a huge oak tree beside it. The birds flit through the tree, take their bath, then come back to the tree to shake their feathers. Sometimes I can hardly look away to get my chores done!

  2. Gorgeous photos, Suz. I love the middle one of the bird bath. Hope you do get lots of sunshine today.

    I have never seen a bird in my bird bath, only squirrels drinking the water, which makes my cats absolutley crazy.

  3. Lovely pictures. Love that one of the birdbath from above.
    I am trying to figure out your comment on my blog. I don't know if I'm daft but I'm stumped. Are you saying, what I think doesn't matter, that's where I need to look?
    I read the post back and I can't figure out what you are referring to.
    But I want to think about what you're asking me to. Because you are kind of my cheerleader and wise helper. I like the way you think and lead me.
    my email is bethanyemott@hotmail.com if you have time.
    Thanks Suz.

  4. I had a crow in my smaller bird bath yesterday....he was having a great time bathing as a Robin sat near by waiting to see if any water was left for him.
    Guess I'll keep the watering can close by...hugs

  5. Your birdbath looks like a hyper tuffa, is it? Did you make it? It is on my list of things to do. The supplies await me in the garage. Hmm, if the rain stops, this may be the perfect day to do that. Have another wonder filled day.
    Love the bunny.


leave me a line of joy
