Let me tell you 'bout the birds and the bees
And the flowers and the trees
And the moon up above
And a thing called "Love"...
The tune is quite catchy, and before long we were all singing the chorus on the playground at school despite the fact our relative youth meant we had little real idea of what it was we were singing about.
Lately that song has been running nonstop through my head whenever I am out and about.
Does that ever happen to you? Do you have ever have a soundtrack superimposed over your days? It happens to me all the time. I see beauty around me and the music is simply and suddenly there as well.
Today, rather than sing the song (you can thank me later) I thought I'd illustrate it for you. So, without further ado:
|This young Eastern Screech Owl roosted temporarily on our front bench|
|Ongoing stand off between competing male hummingbirds|
|Bees often get blown into the pool. The lucky ones I fish out and they fly off apparently unharmed|
|Polygonia interrogationis Question Mark Butterfly|
|Eumorpha vitis - Vine Sphinx moth|
|Garlic chive blooms dancing in August's heat over the Verbena|
|Oak leaf galls - the jewel tones are surprisingly pretty|
|July's second full moon for 2012|
