Awesome details…

Look closely and you can see the tiny florets changing to berries. The growing season is coming to a close for the year. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

The background flower compliments the main subject in this close up photograph of a wonderful cluster of unique beauty. God’s creativeness continues to awe me. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Possibilities…

Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

I look at this fall image and think

Of maturing, ripening possibilties

Seeds are quietly forming

New cycles of life

New changes for growth

New changes for change

New possibilities

Others may see a final sequence

Others may see the end

Others may see farwell

Others feel dispair, hopelessness

Remember life is rich

In cycles of possibilities

Look for the seeds of hope in

Your life

Look for the possibilities that others

Cannot yet see.

Look for future miracles.

Harvest those seeds and nuture

Possibilities.

New observation…

Another striking find during a walk at Flamingo Gardens. I wanted to touch them and see how hard or soft, how light or heavy they felt. Too high in the tree to answer the question. Look at the Tamarind (Tamarindus indica) tree. God (or whatever higher being your recognize) never ceases to amaze and humble me with his designs and creations.

The Tamarind tree are filled with pods caring multiple fruit which is edible and medicinal. The fruit is sweetest when the pods are dark brown. Each Tamarind tree yeilds over 350 pounds of fruit per year. CLICK the image to learn more. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Tamarind is a native of Aftrica; but enjoyed in many tropical parts of the world. I look forward to trying to view it when in flower, though the flowers are less striking in presence. I look forward to buying some Tamarind jam for my breakfast toast. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Ornamental use of immigrants…

These unique Egyptian Geese (Alpochen aegyptiaca) birds were considered sacred by Eyptians. Americans imported them as decor for Golf Courses. Were our own wildlife too ugly or boring? Some have now vacated the golf courses for the wild.

This family was at the animal rescue facilities of Flamingo Gardens in Davie Florida. They are in the Rookery section which is open so they could wander if wanted. Many of their birds are not able to be released because of injury or “imprinting” (taming by people), so would not survive in the wild. Any animal that does recover is released as soon as it’s health returns.

I never tire of seeing new miracles of God’s designs. So amazing.

The previous post showed the Egyptian Geese babies in the water and Duckweed. Shortly afterwards Mom (or Dad) joined them. First they had time to explore without parental accompanying them. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Lastly, the entire family enjoys an outing. So did we! Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

What’s in a name…”

I’ve added a page, something that seemed to be missing from this blog. An explanation behind my blog’s chosen name. Check out the “What’s In A Name” tab on the left.

Reasons why…

This picture of Tigger, years ago, serves as a reminder for me to STOP and spend some time outdoors, just being one with life and nature. I thought it appropriate to use it as my 300th post. How rewarding this blog experience has been for me over the years.

My primary reason for beginning to blog was to share images with long distant family and friends. Silently, partly subliminally, I was also fulfilling a desire to write as a naturalist. This blog has allowed me to write in a manner that fits my life schedule. I have yet to figure out how to have the time necessary for any lengthy writing projects.

I am blessed. My hours outdoors are gifts. To be able to retain a tiny portion of these experiences via the camera is a “Miracle Respectfully Preserved” that I revel in sharing with each of you. Each of your “likes” and comments been a treasure for me. THANK YOU and keep enjoying the miracles, big and small (are there really any small ones?!) around you!
