nature's treasures


solo post - L Nikon D40x 200mm please click to see larger - it's an amazing nest

I really enjoy blogging - it didn't take long for me to fall in love with it because I have met so many inspirational, talented and amazing women here. Relyn is one of those women. She is one the most beautiful, sincere, and compassionate ladies I've ever met - a gifted school teacher, a loving wife and devoted mother. Please visit Relyn - you will feel so welcomed there with the soothing music playing and there will be a cup of tea waiting for you. I really felt honored to be invited to write a guest post on her blog. She asked me to write on a passion of mine so I chose to write about a passion T and I share together - Hunting for treasures.

2 weeks ago when T was home on spring break, we were doing a little spring cleaning and maintenance in the yard and found this beautiful bird's nest in our little red maple tree. This is one of the prettiest nests I've ever found - it's got several different types of feathers in it, delicate twisty twigs, pinestraw and some sort of strips of transparent plastic - almost like clear easter basket grass. I'm not sure where these strips came from but it adds sparkle to this home.

Leslye...love the nest and agree with ELK about the meaphor piece.

I tagged you over at my place today. I never do these kinds of things, but I added photos to mine to make it more fun.

Oh, Leslye. Your words are like warm socks on cold feet - a soothing, comforting feeling that lingers and lingers. You are such a beautiful heart and a good friend. I treasure knowing you.
