Thanks everyone!


Wonderful captures! They are in my Rhodo bush too :)


We have a large azalea, and it's the same deal. Love the bee photos!


Great photos - and a wonderful story. I have a boxwood beside my front door that blooms in the spring if I remember not to cut the bush back in fall... tiny tiny bees cover it with sound and activity come spring... but my photos aren't nearly as good as yours Nancy - so much fun to read!

Arthur in the Garden!

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
