Daffodil Day

It was a lovely spring day here today and my garden is starting to come to life after the cold winter. It really is this time for daffodils and there are clumps blooming with their heads nodding in the warm breeze. These photos were taken early in the morning away from the bright sunlight, focusing in on a single bloom gave a blurred background and a lovely soft photo.



Cheers for now Susan ♥

Blog Winner

Recently I entered a blog Giveaway at Destermountainbears and was so happy when Joanne emailed me to let me know that I was the lucky winner. This bear was carved by a Native American Navajo from Picasso marble with turquoise eyes, his lifeline is turquoise and coral and he has a medicine bundle on his back made from shell with a coral inlay. In Native American symbolism bears represent courage and strength and inner power.




I have him sitting on a dresser where he can watch over the bears as I am sewing.
Thank you Joanne for such a lovely giveaway.

Cheers for now Susan ♥

Rico learns to sit on hands

My little bird Rico is learning to sit on our hands with a bribe of his favourite seeds. He loves apples and sultanas and will try just about anything we offer him, he is such an inquisitive little character. Now that it is warming up I put his cage outside in the sunshine where he can see and hear the wild birds that come to our bird feeder.



Cheers for now Susan ♥
