Friday Faves – Blossoms and Birds

Hello everyone!

Time to look back over the week and count our blessings.

Sunshine made a welcome appearance on the Island this week after a long spell of wet, dreary weather.

Such lovely warm golden light – perfect for  long rambling walks. The woods near our home is filled with wild-flowers and the singing of birds.

The ladyslippers are in bloom. Did you know that they are Prince Edward Island’s floral emblem?

Come join me for a look at them.

1. I discovered a white ladyslipper – somewhat rare.

 

2. Delicate pale pink

 

I’m not sure how I managed the swirling background and the focussed flower – but I like the effect ๐Ÿ™‚

 

3. Deep pink

4. Glory light

More glory light. Look how it falls on the base of the tree. I don’t know why, but it reminds me of LOTR ๐Ÿ™‚

5. Here’s my final favourite for the week ~  I bought a niger sock to attract more American goldfinches as well as pine siskins.

 It worked!

 Well, I hope you enjoyed your Friday visit with me. Thank you so much for dropping in.

Roger and I are heading off to the US of A for a wedding. And a little holiday together.

Be good while we’re gone ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy weekend!

with love,

  1. Such beauty all around you! We have nothing like a lady’s slipper on the prairie, but I love yours. I like the swirling trees effect on the picture too. How cool! And the light. I like pictures with the sun shining in different ways.Isn’t it wonderful that the earth is blooming again and the birds are home for the season? What a gift.Jody

  2. The lady slippers make me think of flamingos. And the light in the forest does look like a scene from LOTR! I can’t wait until The Hobbit is finished. The birds seem to be having quite a conversation!

  3. June Gloom in California? Yes, along the coast the forecast is always ‘early morning coastal fog and low cloudiness, giving way to sunshine later in the day’ in May and June. We could call it May and June Gloom but June Gloom alitterates better. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Welcome to the US! Enjoy your stay (although you are still really really far away from me). Thank you for making our gold finches welcome to Canada. The little birds are obviously pleased to be visiting PEI. The lady’s slippers photos are gorgeous! And yes, I liked the the glory sun in the trees, too–You’re right about the LOTR reference. Maybe it’s the quality of the yellow light–I’ll have to do a comparison study ๐Ÿ™‚

    Kathie, your pictures are marvelous. I didn’t know that the Ladyslippers came in so many colours. Amazing! And the "Glory light" – too beautiful for words. Thank you for sharing.

  6. What gorgeous photos! Sunshine is most welcome, I think, after a time of rain. I love the glory light, too — both photos look like something from LOTR and could probably be sold as the background for inspirational posters. Love the swirly background behind the focused flower — such a neat effect!

  7. I don’t think I’ve every seen a ladyslipper flower in person. Your pictures are lovely of them. Goldfinches are such lovely birds. Glad your feeder attracted them. Have a safe trip and lots of fun here in the U.S.
