I know "to everything there is a season," but could summer last forever? Last night I just sat on the porch and enjoyed every second of the day. The peonies were heavy with scent. The rose and red garden in are in full bloom. The sounds of the blue jays, crossbills, nuthatches, grossbeaks, and chickadees fill the air. I glimpsed a hummingbird just once at the feeder. I wish time would just stand still.
I enjoy observing the birds. It soothes me after a long week. I especially like watching the baby chicks learn the ways of the world. Life is grand.
This hen kept her little ones close by.
The Scarlet Tanager stops by once in a while for a few bites of suet.

This crossbill is one of the group of 50 that have been homesteading at my feeders.
My husband got these photos of the hen and her chicks. The little guys are adorable.
