Worm Hunting

While I was waiting for the Worm Moon to rise, this robin just a few feet away from me was hunting for worms, too. He would tilt his head to listen, then pull one up.

Did you know that the robins in America are NOT really robins? They are a type of thrush. The REAL robins are in Europe, and are a species of Chat. Here is a picture of one from the web. See the difference? They are much smaller and don't have as much red..

God gives every bird its food, but He does not throw it into its nest.

Spring Super Moon!

Today was the first day of spring, plus a Super Moon! And I was waiting with my camera! On my next post I will tell you it's name, and show you a living reminder of that name.

“The man who has seen the rising moon break out of the clouds at midnight has been present like an archangel at the creation of light and of the world.”

The Flower House, Part ll

I forgot to mention that those flowers are not just out at Easter time, they are there all year! There are a few real ones, but most are fake. The lady who lived there was named Myrtle Cason. She bought the house in 2001, and has had all the flowers out front simply because she loved them. It was her way of spreading happiness. It became quite a tourist attraction. She moved into assisted living about a year ago, and died a few months ago at 89. She is survived by two sons, two sisters, and numerous nieces and nephews.  I don't know what will become of the house or flowers, but I will be keeping an eye on it. She certainly believed in an abundance of things she loved.  Here she is, as she was shown in the newspaper.

Here are some of the other items she mixed in with her flowers.

"How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you, that you bestow in the sight of all, on those who take refuge in you."
Psalm 31

The Easter House Mystery

Some of you may remember when I posted this a few years ago. This house is in a rather run down neighborhood, but is amazing! We just happened to pass it one day, and I was stunned! Fortunately I had my camera. I called it The Easter House, and wondered about who lived there and why they did this.

The flowers continue around the house and partway down the street.

A week or so ago, there was a big article in the paper about this house, and it's owner. Complete with a picture of the owner! So it is a mystery no more. I will show and tell in my next post, along with some pictures of  the non-flower objects among the flowers.

“Spring flowers are in blossom all over. The whole world’s a choir—and singing!”
