Sights, Sounds, Smells

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Hi Everybear, how are you on this bee-u-tee-ful Friday morning? I am working this week at Camp Good Bear so Mom is writing today.... Take it away Mom...
Hi, "these are a few of my favorites things"
Church Steeple - standing on our upstairs porch and looking to the south I see a Church Steeple, it is now almost hidden with the trees in bloom but in the evening I can see the steeple lighted.
Church Bells - coming from the same church are the ringing of the bell.  It rings in the evening and on Sunday mornings at 11 a.m.
Horses - during the day I can hear horses whinnying, coming from the south and not too far from the church.
Birds - I saw my first hummingbird on Good Friday morning at our feeder on the porch.  How fitting that it would be on that day.  We take the feeder in at dusk and put it out at dawn - there have been sightings of a little neighborhood black bear who loves the nectar.  The little guy helped himself to a neighbor's bird feeder during the winter.
I love to listen to the sweet songs and chirps of the birds, I begin to hear them at 6 a.m. and they continue to sing their lovely songs all day.

Brook - Garrison Branch runs along our property line down the "hill", in stormy weather you can go out on the porch and hear the rushing water.
Trains - rarely, but it does happen, you can hear a very distant train whistle, there is a railroad that runs along the French Broad River here in Weaverville.
Smells -  freshly cut grass, maybe in the fall I will smell freshly cut hay since there is farmland all around us.  Lilacs, Lily-of-the-Valley, Rosemary, are some of my most favorite fragrances.
Sightings -  my first Bluebird sighing was in March.  Chipmunks - two of them playing by the mailbox, bunnies and squirrels too.
"these are a few of my favorite things..."

Have a blessed weekend and maybe you too can enjoy the Sights, Sounds, Smells that nature has brought your way.

  3. Hi Joyce, It is so nice to share your sounds and the things you see at your home.I hear Kookaburras laughing most days, then there are the noisy lorakeets . The spelling does not look right... Any way the squabble and chatter away so loudly. Now I am living in the city, of course I hear cars and trains.
    On the farm it was the quiet that was so beautiful.
    Give Prudence my love.
    Hugs Kay and Wilbur

  4. That looks like quite some place Joyce. We wish you many years of happy birds, Chipmunk and bear watching.
    Jock and Zeke
