#FOTD ~ Flower of the Day #Nature #Photography #Floral

My choice for June 2nd is another flower that was already in situ, but I do know what it is (with the help of Google) Erigeron ‘Sea Breeze’, great for attracting pollinators.

#SundayStills ~ #Straight Lines Created by Man and #Nature #Bird #Ocean #Photography #Church #Scenery

Welcome to the Sunday Stills feature created and hosted by Terri Webster Schrandt 

The theme for Sunday Stills this week is ‘straight’. The first thing that came to mind was the horizon and, although we know it’s not actually straight, it looks that way to us.

The angle of the sun is casting shadows in straight lines across this wooden walkway.

The Robin ~ The Nation’s Favourite Little Bird ~ #Nature #Robin #Photography #GardenBirds

What is it about our national bird, the robin, that captures the imagination? It has a friendly human name, although the original name was just redbreast or Ruddock. It’s become a symbol of Christmas and we love to see them in the garden.

The robin has many connections to folklore and has ecclesiastical links dating back to the 6th century AD. One explanation for the red breast originated with the idea that a bird tried to pull thorns out of the crown of thorns during the Passion of Christ. In reality it’s a warning…stay out of my territory. More on next page
