Gathering Gratefuls - Feathery Jewels

Walking through our neighbourhood, I spied a scarlet chested friend high up in a gum tree....
who in turn called out to his mate to come out and spy the humans...can you see her green tail?
Out she came to say g'day albeit a little shyly....
then with some loving reassurance and...
a little kiss, she was encouraged to share the limelight.

This little series is a celebration of so much that is simple and wonderful in my world at the moment.

* That we live in a peaceful & safe place where I can go for a walk at any time of the day

* That our home is in a neighbourhood filled to the brim with glorious flora and fauna

* That nature gifts me glorious colour every day in the form of clear blue skies, gorgeous leaves, bark and blooms and the startling jackets worn by lots of different feathered friends

* That my health has returned to the level where I'm walking up to 5km at a time 

* That sometimes I remember my camera and am able to capture these glorious moments of serendipity and share them with you

If you're a regular 'Gifter' you'll know that I like to share this series with my sparkling friend Maxabella, if not, click over here to read what other people are grateful for this week.

Happy day!

  1. I love your narrative!! She does look shy and sweet. He is such a gentleman too. Aaaww, my favourite place IS the Aussie bush and my favourite sound is standing on crunch bark. Yep. I don't suppose many know what their favourite sound is. Walking 5 km? Glad to hear it sweet Felicity. take care...

  9. I am grinning from ear to ear at your chance encounter. So glad you had your camera with you so we could share it. Adorable.
    I'm thankful for everything, from the time I open my eyes in the morning and all they see until I close them again at night - even thankful for the rest in between.

  19. Magnifique nid d'amour pour ces superbes oiseaux.
    D'après la photo qui indique ton blog avec ce dessin sur le sable, tu devrais trouver des choses qui te plaisent dans mon blog puisqu'il est consacré au land art.
