Birds Wearing Helmets

We were driving the other day,  and these birds were crossing the street. There was a fair amount of traffic.They were trying to fly, but couldn't.



Upon getting to the other side, they spread out in a big field and began to graze.




I had never seen anything like them! They had big red wattles, white faces, hard cones on their heads, piercing black eyes, and a beautiful feather pattern. Phil knew that they were Guinea Fowl! I later discovered they are called Helmeted Guinea Fowl, and come from New Zealand. I have since seen them cross the road again. Strange birds.


“A wind set in motion by God swept quails in from the sea. They piled up to a depth of about three feet in the camp and as far out as a day’s walk in every direction. All that day and night and into the next day the people were out gathering the quail”

A Gold Lining

As we were driving, I noticed the sunset from the side car window.What I loved way the sun made the cloud edges gold.




“Her wedding dress is dazzling, lined with gold by the weavers; All her dresses and robes are woven with gold.”
Psalm 45

The Leaves

Finally, the Poke Berry leaves! They are even prettier than the berries! I have not changed or brightened the color, this is what they actually look like. Not all of them look like this, for some reason. Quite a few just turn brown and shrivel up. But there are plenty of this kind as well.






 “Not a tree in God’s garden was in the same class of beauty. I made it beautiful, a work of art in limbs and leaves, The envy of every tree in Eden, every last tree in God’s garden.’”

Ezekiel 31

Poked

The Poke Berries have been out for quite awhile now. I think they so pretty, with their red stems! They are poisonous to humans and animals. But not to birds! Over 30 species of birds eat them.








But this is nothing compared to what their leaves look like now! I will show them to you next!

“Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.”
Proverbs 18

Dark Side Of The Moon

The moon has been such a pretty crescent these last few days. So I got the idea to try and snap the dark side of it! Not easy. In the process, here are some of my sky snaps.




This shot is so blurry from my hands shaking. But I finally DID get the dark side of the moon! Can you see it? 

Thanks so much for your prayers and comments! I am much better today! And NO E.R.!

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
John 1:5

Sick

I will not be visiting or commenting today. Seems like I have gotten another attack of diverticulitis. I will be going to the emergency room either tonight or in the morning. Hope to see you soon!

What's Up?

I'll tell you what's up. Crocus!! In the fall! It has started popping up everywhere. Don't believe me? See for yourself. What IS up with this?



“Wilderness and desert will sing joyously, the badlands will celebrate and flower— Like the crocus in spring, bursting into blossom, a symphony of song and color.” 
Isaiah 35

First Day Of Fall!

Today is the first day of Fall. So I have put together some of my fall tree photos from previous years that I have not posted before. Happy Fall, ya'll!

Pinecone Dress

Here is a dress made from pine cones and bark for you. We saw it in a museum, and I think it it very fashionable. I would wear it myself, but I think it would be pretty prickly. Plus, I would be attacked by squirrels. Enjoy!





“God’s kingdom is like a pine nut that a farmer plants. It is quite small as seeds go, but in the course of years it grows into a huge pine tree, and eagles build nests in it.”

Matthew 13
