Memorial Day 2020

Remembering all of the fallen heroes today....praying for them and their families, and thankful for their service and ultimate sacrifice which has allowed us our freedom that we have today. They will never be forgotten.

Due to the pandemic, most of the Memorial Day events and observances have been cancelled. The town of Weymouth cancelled their annual Memorial Day parade, but they did have a rolling tribute to all of the fallen heroes. Mr S joined in this memorial, driving the 1914 Model T, with his sister alongside him, and his friend Jerry drove the 1930 Chevy businesman's coop that we inherited from my dear Father In Law.

May we never forget.

Stay safe and healthy my friends. xxoo

Baltimore Oriole Nest

Spring weather has finally arrived here in SE MA. It's 80 degrees outside with no humidity and not a cloud in the sky as I type this. This is my kind of weather. The kind that puts a smile in your heart!

I found a Baltimore Oriole nest the other day. The hatchlings haven't hatched yet, but it's a lot of fun watching Mom and Dad from a distance, with my long lens.

Black Crowned Night Herons at Weymouth Herring Run

It's that time of year again where the herring are returning to Whitman's Pond in Weymouth MA from the Atlantic Ocean along the Carolina Coastline. I always enjoy photographing this phenomenon of nature and this rite of Spring.

Here are a few photos of Black Crowned Night Herons along the run:

"Listen to the mustn'ts child.
Listen to the dont's.
Listen to the shouldn'ts,
the impossibles, the wont's.
Listen to the never haves,
then listen close to me...
Anything can happen child.
Anything can be.

Mothers Day 2020

This year it's difficult for so many people. Those who have lost their Moms, those with Moms in Nursing Homes and Assisted Living facilities who can't see or hug their Moms. Then there's those who have to socially distance from their loved ones and can't hug their grandchildren.

But one thing is universally the same and will never change, and that is a Mother's love.

Happy Mother's Day.

Stay healthy and safe my friends. xoo

Spring birds in New England

It's been so nice out here in southern New England the past few days. The recent chilly and rainy weather was rather depressing as we are all isolating in our homes. I hope you're experiencing some nice weather where you are. I know there are followers from around the World that view this blog, and I hope it's a nice distraction for you no matter where in the World you are. We are all in this pandemic together.

Yellow Warbler......was so excited to see this little one. I've never photographed one before.

Another one I was happy to see.....the Baltimore Oriole

                                            Enjoying the nectar:

And of course the Red Winged Black Birds. They were the first ones to arrive.

Stay safe and healthy my friends. xxoo
