What a wonderful walk on Friday at Kensington...perfect weather and the birds were all singing me a morning greeting!
Sandhill Cranes out for a morning walk. When they got even with me (I stepped off the trail) I said "ladies first" and cautiously passed them.
Could this be a Red-tailed Hawk feather?
This little toad was smaller than a dime
Watch this space for "bad bird pictures" coming soon :-)

MonarchsA rainy morning in April...what to do? Just get in the van and drive around Brookgreen Gardens and then check out the butterfly house. No long lines on a day like it was...I had it all to myself.

On to my favorite bird feeder spot at the Nature Center to see if one of my favorite little birds is there...and yes he is.....a Painted Bunting

The tragic events in Charleston makes me feel so sad. I visit the city every year and when we were there this past April I took many great photos...a lot from the carriage that we rode in. Charleston is so full of history, some bad but the past can't be changed nor should it be forgotten or ignored. The old Slave Market is a good example. As we shop for souvenirs, clothes and other do-dads, we must remember what these building were used for originally. The wonderful houses, churches and cemeteries, are all steeped in the history of southern living. Although it seems charming on the surface we must remember the past so history does not repeat itself.
