Field & Garden

May 21 to June 3

Birds and Flowers (1)This beautiful Ring-necked Pheasant was in a neighboring field when we returned to our house following Jared and Chelsey’s wedding.

Birds and Flowers (3)The next morning – on the way to Sunday school – there was a Trumpeter Swan in the field across from us.

I am not sure that I ever saw one by itself, but when I looked at these pictures I think it may have an injured wing.

Birds and Flowers (4)Notice the drop of its left wing.

Birds and Flowers (5)The next day I enjoyed watching this European Starling taking a morning bath.

Birds and Flowers (12)One morning while enjoying the beauty of our woods and yard, I picked a few flowers.

Look at the difference in these two pictures – with the difference in settings.

We are blessed by lots of beauty in our yard and neighboring fields.

  1. Pheasants in your fields — oh my!!! I love the contrast between the two like shots — you lowered a shade, and the flowers came to life!
