No Bird Death with a Crystal Rainbow Mobile


The cycle of life continues; Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring again. Now we are moving into winter. The days are short now, darkness comes so early and I’m perpetually surprised. 

 

The bird feeders are up and cleaned and with the first scoop of birdseed, they came flocking in; cardinals, nuthatches, finches and the crows.  Secretly, crows are among my favorites.  I love to watch them fill their beaks so full that they can’t close them as they swoop off to their nests to feed their young or maybe just to stash some away for a snack later on.

Changing Color for Autumn


Autumn has arrived! The forest out my window is being touched by Rainbow colors.  The hickories are splashed with yellow, the dogwood with deep purples and the maples are starting their incredible journey of bright green to orange and red and gold.  The air is crisp and birds are coming to the feeders to let us know they’re arriving and expect to be fed by us until next spring.

Labor Day Party Rainbow Windsock Special


It seems like just yesterday that summer began with all the promise of endless days of leisure and fun.  The 4th of July came and went like a heartbeat while the weather heated up and rivers and lakes became our best friends.   Boating is one of the biggest attractions in the lake country of the Ozarks and with them come the gulls and other birds that love to eat scraps and make their offal mess everywhere.

Rainbow Ornaments to Meditate By


When I started meditating some years ago, one of the instructions was to focus on one specific item.  Some people use candles, or a picture or a statue.  I love to use our Rainbow creations because the light is always changing, keeping my mind focused.  Our Rainbow Ornaments really work so well.  Small but light weight and can be hung anywhere light touches them, setting off sparkles in ever changing patterns that keep the mind focused.

Birds Off Boats!


Summer is in full swing.  Today we had over 90 degree temperatures and high humidity and it’s time to take to the water!  This is season to rush to the lake or river and feel those cooling breezes.  The marinas are full and the birds are swirling overhead, just waiting until you step away so they can land on the mast or railings or any other place they find; and we all know what comes with birds…a mess.  Of course, the world belongs to us all and we need birds, so we have to find a way to coexist with them.

Mother’s Day is May 11th


Mother’s Day is May 11th and  I miss mine.  I’m creating a little garden space for her, complete with roses and rainbows.  Like a little grotto, the space will have climbing roses that scent the space and her favorite Rainbow sparklers.  Mom was definitely one of our greatest fans and had rainbows all around her.  But, not to be maudlin, this is just a space that I can remember the loving comfort of Mother’s arms

The Garden Calls


 I can barely make myself sit in this chair typing these words today.  The sun is shining, the grass is green (and growing), irises are starting to bloom, the tulips are on full display and the passionflower vines are heavy with their unopened blossoms.

Finally Spring


Each day brings more color in the forest and the early splashes of white are now being entwined with the dark purple to lilac with green shimmering through the landscape.  The skies are blue with puffy white clouds floating by.  The grass has gone from brown to green with wild flowers fighting for their place in the yard.  Finally, it’s here. Spring!
