All eyes will be on the evening sky tomorrow with the arrival of the Blue Moon (there won’t be another until 2015), but tonight’s celestial event was equally awe-filled. Even before the pink/purple hues painted the heavens, the sky was delightfully filled with a smorgasbord of clouds–wisps, rows, and puffs galore. What a beautiful way to end the day.
I found an old friend at the marina today–the Little Blue Heron. I should make that “a” Little Blue Heron, because this is not the same LBH that came on a regular basis. I need to investigate a little more to determine what stage it is –its pink tipped bill is confusing.
I also spotted the first hummingbird of the fall season today. It was buzzing around a hanging basket on the back deck. Yes, another clue that fall change is happening now, even though to us it seems we are at the height of summer.
Green Thought: “If you will stay close to nature, to its simplicity, to the small things hardly noticeable, those things can unexpectedly become great and immeasurable.”
