Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

We Are Expecting


Bluebirds that is…      DSC_5956-001


We noticed several bluebirds out and about the other day and yesterday we saw the new parents taking roost in our birdhouse and mom making her nest.  They are such beautiful birds and so fun to watch.  The birdhouse is about 30 feet from our front door so we should have a good view of the upcoming family.  I took several pictures of the bluebirds so we wanted to share them with you.





Also, the azaleas in our back yard are about a week away of peaking in their blooms.  The weather has been so warm we are about 2 weeks ahead of the season with the blooms.



   While we were taking pics of the bluebirds, I couldn’t resist taking a pic of this Robin.   DSC_5954-001

    We hope each of you had a great weekend and have a safe and great week.  Thanks for letting us share some of our birds with you!
