Postings from St Lucia


Day 60
"Yesterday is HISTORY . Tomorrow is a MYSTERY. Today is a GIFT
That's why it's called the 'PRESENT' "
Unknown



My present to me was an underwater casing for my Fuji Finepix.

Day 59
"I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all."

Being a Hummingbird mum is hard work.


When you see the babies at 4 days old.

Then at 10 days old, that is a lot of food to gather.
Isn't nature wonderful?

Day 58

“Look at what you've got and make the best of it. It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.”
Proverb

Nature's candle moving on for the night.

Not what I expected to find on my windowsill but a stray crisp always tempted her.
