Chancy and I were taking a walk around the yard the other day like we do every day that weather permits.
We noticed that the crepe myrtles were beginning to bloom and were going to be loaded with blooms this year.
We saw this pretty mockingbird atop the fence. It posed for a couple of shots before flying off.
For the first time ever we have noticed several young mockingbirds at our place.
We happened to spy this robin walking around beneath the mock pomegranate bush.
We saw in our backyard that the storm that came the night before had left the top of a neighbors tree and a large limb from another neighbor’s tree in our yard, on top of our fence and tangled in the power lines above.
We had another thunderstorm night before last and the beautiful crepe myrtles are now damaged and some will have to be removed, but no matter what we always find beauty and interesting things on our walks around our yard.
The blessings far outweigh the bumps in the road that come from time to time.
