Just Breathe

downy woodpecker or hairy

While Mama Cardinal is patiently nesting on top of her eggs in the front of the house, the rest of the bird sanctuary is a flutter in the backyard.

I caught this cute little Downy Woodpecker hopping along the deck railing heading for the feeder while taking turns with the others late yesterday afternoon.

The “music” in my backyard is something I cannot even describe to you.

Nothing soothes my soul – especially after a hectic work day or times of stress – like the music of nature in my backyard.

So… While watching the motion and listening to the sounds…

Mikey and I close our eyes to the sun…

and just breathe.

(and he is so much better at it than me!) πŸ™‚

Cheers & Hugs,

  1. What a cool photo! I love it. I can see you and Mikey sitting on your back deck and listening to the sound of the birds. Just thinking about this is relaxing for me. The sound of birds chattering with each other is truly sweet music.
