A few years ago, I mentioned that my husband and I like to look at a live cam of an osprey nest. This is the fourth year that this has been done and it is on Hog Island in the state of Maine. Beginning in April, one can watch the ospreys build the nest, lay the eggs and wait for the eggs to hatch. You watch the babies grow as the parents work very hard to feed them.
A very sad thing just happened... the osprey parents had two baby birds in the nest and when they both left the nest, a bald eagle SWOOPED down and took the babies! Gee, that makes me sad but that is nature for you.
You may read about it on the Audubon website here.
On my last post, I showed you a flower that bloomed from a plant that my brother had given us. I am showing you some flowers from a few years ago that also bloomed on our front porch. We had these plants for years but just this past year, we had some very cold weather and they did not survive their winter home in the garage.
They were amaryllis and we had red ones, white ones and a very pale pink one. We had them for years and I mourn the loss of them.
Once again, that is nature for you.
As you can see, Richard is not only a talented photographer but a gifted gardener as well! In America, we would say that he has a "green thumb" but in England, they say "green fingers"!
By the way, did you see the guard that was taunted by a tourist at Windsor Castle and his reaction? It's priceless. I notice that it is an American tourist. Dang it. I keep finding bad news to tell you.
(My sister has been visiting here and she just saw Tom Cruise filming a movie in Madison, Georgia! If you see a pretty blonde in the background of the movie "Mena", that might be Pam!)
