It’s been a beautiful month of blacks and greys, but how can we already be in the last month of the year? I’m excited to be putting up Christmas decorations and as we have a smallish artificial tree that is decorated mostly with bird ornaments and other nature items, it seems appropriate to end this month’s theme with a bird photo.

“Birds chirping around you is a beautiful realisation that life is incredibly good. Let this sound be a gentle break in your routine.”

    I couldn’t agree more with both quotes. A lovely capture of a lovely bird Janet. Thanks for your month of blacks and greys, I have enjoyed them all.

    We could learn much by the birds – they nearly always seems positive. 🙂

  3. I bet your tree is a natural beauty.

  4. Excellent quotes serving as bookends to an image that makes everyone smile. To me, the quotes have a sense of ying and yang – and that’s a good thing.

    I like silence. I’ve enjoyed your photos, noisy or not!

  6. Gorgeous image, Janet! I like those two quotes a lot too.

    May not be as flashy as some birds but still pretty to look at. Great capture and quotes!

  8. Sue says:

    Love this image, Janet!

    Both quotes accompanying your beautiful photograph had me nodding in full agreement this morning, Janet. When I start work in the morning and I have the music of birdsong in the background it makes my job a little easier.

    Certainly apropos. I too, am grateful to be putting up Christmas decorations. The bird seems to be listening for YOU in that silence. That quote was spot on. When we walk to the sunrise n the morning its so cool to hear who wakes up first…or goest to sleep last. I keep hearing an owl when I start and cant seem to see where its nesting. Glad you had a nice trip with your husband. and now….perfect weather. Donna

  11. Yup, I really like the photo and both quotes, as well, Janet. It is very hard to believe it’s almost Christmas again! 🌞

    • It really is, Lisa. I got almost all the decorations up this morning so it looks very festive inside. I often leave them up until well after Epiphany because we both like them so much, as did the girls when they were still at home.

    Sweet bird….

    Janet, I’m seeing ads on your site
    I don’t care, but I never saw them before. I’m mentioning this just in case you are paying for no ads.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
