Earth

This week’s Daily Post photo challenge is Earth.

When I think of our earth I think of all the beautiful things we get to look at.

Tiny hummingbirds hovering over the flowers for nectar, star jasmine and its smells that delight us all. The Louisiana iris and all the other flowers that are blooming this time of year. Then there are the new sunrises I get to see and enjoy each and every day.

Yesterday our youngest daughter and I took her 4 children to do pictures at the beach.

I can not tell you how disgusted I was with the littering people had left from the weekend before. Seriously everyone needs to pick up their own garbage. I grabbed a plastic bag and picked up all the cans and bottles it would hold in the area we were taking pictures.

If we all do part not to pollute, contaminate or destroy our earth it will be here for all the future generations to see and enjoy.

Surprise

This week’s Daily Post Photo challenge is the word Surprise.

When I saw this hawk in the tree I tried to get as close as I could to get a good picture. He was in a tala tree on the fence line in the backyard.

It was not until I looked at the pictures that I noticed he was staring down at my bird feeders in the backyard stalking the birds I had just fed.

It is time to change up my routine again so he is not watching me and the birds.

Security monkeys

This week’s Daily Post photo challenge is Security.

The first monkey I found was the red one and after that, we would buy Daisy a new one when we could find a different color.  We have now collected all six colors of the monkeys.

When she gets a new monkey it becomes her favorite and that is the one she wags around with her.

Does that mean dogs can see color?

Daisy used to bring one monkey to bed at night and now she brings three or four. She acts like a mama dog rounding up her puppies.

After she brings them to bed I will sneak a few of them away from her while she’s distracted. When she notices they are missing she starts frantically looking around for them until they are rounded back up again.

Does this mean dogs can count?

When I was taking these pictures yesterday morning of her and her monkeys little did I know it would fit in perfect with this weeks photo challenge.

Daisy needs the security of her monkeys at bedtime and that is all that matters.
