Warm And Sunny Memories

As I type this,I am seeing a heavy layer of snow outside.We are having our first storm of the season and it is bringing lots of snow ,BUT, I have pictures and memories to warm things up.

All the pictures in this post were taken at the end of August, at the English Gardens in Winnipeg.
A bee wanted to get into the picture as I focused on this Thistle.


It was a pleasure to watch the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds as they prepared to head to their winter home down south.


Got to get each feather looking just right.

Of course the whole time, they make frequent visits to the many flowers. That sweet nectar is just what they need as fuel for their journey.


Some critters, like this little frog use the Water Lilies for a bed/couch. He seemed quite content just to sit there.

 Even though it was toward the end of summer, many flowers were still showing their full beauty.  I am already looking forward to more visits to this garden and others, come next summer.


Something To Think About:
Matthew 6:26
Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

Snow? Already? Oh my. It's that time of year I guess. My favorite today is the frog couch!!

Stay warm & dry Ruth!

Hi Ruth, That is a favorite Bible verse. Hard to believe you are having snow. These beautiful photos from the garden are a delight to see. That little frog has it made! lol We are thankful to be enjoying much cooler temps. It allows me to sit outdoors and read or walk around with the dog. Enjoy your night. xo

How many inches are you forcasted? The photos are lovely. I think the frog is pretty, with those spots. Your hummingbird shots are amazing, considering how fast their wings beat!

Your photos are beautiful, but I've come to expect nothing less. I hope your snow doesn't come down here any time soon.

Delightful photos. I adore hummers. I haven't seen our resident hummingbird for quite some time...hoping the next door neighbor's cat hasn't gotten it.

Just want to stop back by and thank you for your prayers and kindness.

I enjoyed seeing the pretty hummingbirds in your photos and laughed at the photo of the frog lounging in the water lily! We had six inches of snow but the weather turned warm again quickly so it all melted. Sadly, many of the tree leaves froze in the frost and lost their autumn color.

We have been traveling in mountains and now coastal Virginia. Temperatures are cooler than the heat of coastal Mississippi that we left behind. I am wearing a jacket in 60-degree weather and can hardly fathom snow in october. Stay cozy!

Ruth, You were so kind to pray for my little great nephew, Cole when he was being tested for a pituitary gland tumor. The test was negative, thank the Lord. Further testing reveals that he needs surgery on his left eye, it "turns" outward at times and he will undergo surgery to "align" it on Nov. 21. I greatly appreciate your blog friendship, kindness and prayers. Have a good day. Mildred
