Friday

Sunshine on His Feathers

Kind hearts are the gardens, 
Kind thoughts are the roots, 
Kind words are the flowers, 
Kind deeds are the fruits,
 Take care of your garden 
And keep out the weeds, 
Fill it with sunshine 
Kind words and kind deeds
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Hmmm... that bird looks a little skinny. But perhaps my big cat leaves my perception of normal sized animals all askew... :)

Lovely words!

Have a terrific weekend Kerri!

Beautiful photo and quote! Mockingbirds hold a very special place in my heart, they remind me of my late mother who was an avid birdwatcher. When I was younger she fed a Mocker on the window sill every winter for a few years. She named him Mickey. It was so fun to watch him so closely! Have a lovely weekend =)

I did a public speaking event in Brunswick, Maine a few years ago for "Longfellow Days." Brunswick was his home town. And, i had a slide of a Mockingbird in that presentation. I have had a love affair with them since childhood. We have them here, but not often, especially not where I live on the coast. Very nice capture and interesting coincidence of choices.
