What a wonderful post. I am ALWAYS amazed at nature. To listen to nature is a gift also. When you slow down and listen to the sounds it is like a symphony.It truely is a blessing to live in this world so full of beauty and wonder. Thanks for the post Kim!


Thank you Kim...I accept the challenge! you are RIGHT! ~The feathers on the little duckling remind me of carnival glass with their rainbow effects as the light hits them... Do you have egrets at your lake? I think they are SO captivating, too. *especially the Snowy. Hugs to you!! lovely photos as always. smiling........


i can smell the aroma of the pretty flowers and hear the ripples of the lake with the ducks swimming carefree.

I completely agree with you. I've just come in from some morning gardening. Love the quiet time surrounded by the beauty of nature.
Your photos are so gorgeous and the music so relaxing. I now feel so calm and content.
Thank you for that, Kim.


Yes, nature is a wonderful gift of God. Oh my! I'm surprised to see how large the ducklings are getting...what amazing colors on her back...those emerald greens are something else! Thank you for sharing your nature time with us.

Mother Nature is indeed wondrous. While you ponder her majesty, please keep good thoughts for those in Isaac’s path. This is so calming, Kim. Thank you.

Sugar Top is beautiful. The color in her feathers reminds me of peacock feathers. During each morning walk, I am alert to the gifts of Mother Nature. The song of birds, the call of hawks, maybe the sight of a heron on the river bank, ducks floating in the morning mist or geese flying overhead. Some mornings, I'm blessed by a doe and her fawn or one of the foxes who live nearby. In the evenings, possibly I'll see a raccoon with her young family. Mother Nature has so many gifts if we will just stop and look. Thank you for the sweet reminder.


I promise!! I will take note.... Just look up ... a starry night is one of my all time favs..... not to mention the amazing family of "Geese" who must cross the road right in front of me.... and so my "unscheduled" stop to allow them to pass ALWAYS makes me smile!!! Thank you Kim!!!!

You have given us a real feast for our eyes. Love the sweet aging rose and the rippling water and Sugar Top. I didn't leave the house today but I will enjoy time in my yard tomorrow! My yard is full of many wonders: birds, bees, butterflies, flowers, bushes and trees, deer and rabbits and baby bunnies,cats,squirrels, blue sky, sunshine and breeze, tomato plants and a neighbor or two. All in my small yard!

Sugar Top is adorable. I have had muscovy ducks for many years. Mr spouse built me a very secure pen with cement floor and the wire bolted to the floor and locked door to house my lovelies every night because we have a very hungry fox that lives in the bush that surrounds our home. EVERY evening, they are all waiting to be locked away and every morning we let them out to be free during the day. I have been doing this same routine for over 6 years. Last week when I went to let them out I was confronted with the most devastating sight that I cannot erase from my mind. Over time we did not realise that one of the bolts had rusted and a fox being a fox found its way into the pen. Dead and injured ducks!! I now only have one very lonely male, George left. He is sad and lonely. I share his pain and loneliness too. How I love visiting your blog, how I love the swans, the ducks, the geese, the beauty that surrounds us, the beauty that you share with us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.



I am so very sorry to hear about the loss of your ducks.
My heart goes out to you and I so understand.
Thank YOU so much for your kindness and for sharing.
Sending you much love as you heal..



Beautiful pictures. Thank you for sharing.

Patty M

I saw leaves changing color this morning and it renewed my strength. This heat has truly been overwhelming this summer and the first sign of autumn gave me the hope I needed. You are so right Kim, nature nurtures. Have a wonderful nurturing weekend. Patty


Dear Kim,

I agree that in these times of all the social media and communication we have to connect with nature to find peace in our lives, in our souls. Because in nature we see everything that we are ourselves: a creation of God. And that's exactly what binds us with everyone and everything!

Love, Nina.
