Sometimes we travel long distances to find beauty and that can be very enjoyable, but,I'm a firm believer that beauty can be as close as just outside the door.
All pictures in this post were taken, either through the window of my door, or while sitting outside.
An American Redstart is enjoying a bath at the little fountain I have.
One of the many Painted Lady butterflies we had around this summer.This one is feeding on the nectar of the Mums on my deck.
A regular and very welcome visitor, the Black-capped Chickadee also enjoys the fountain.
A bird bath sitting on the deck railing, draws many different birds.Once again, the Chickadee stops by for a drink and to sing me a quick little tune.
No sooner has the Chickadee left and a Red-breasted Nuthatch also wants a drink.
I will say that this is an immature Chipping Sparrow,but welcome a correction on that.Either way, this little fella enjoyed the fountain as well.
Heavenly Father, You have put us here to enjoy and ponder Your marvelous creation. May everything You have made remind us of Your goodness, love, and care.
