What are you seeing in nature? It can be from your own backyard, the local park, out on a hike or anywhere. What plants and animals catch your interest? What do you find interesting in nature? Take a photo, write a post, a story, a poem, anything goes because I love to see what Mother Nature is up to in your area. PS..please check back and visit bloggers who post later in the week!

  1. That’s wonderful, Michelle, that you can still get such lovely photos from inside. You have set up your environment so nicely for yourself. I hope you feel better from your latest ailment soon. We are in Vermont now – too cold to go outside to take photos.


  2. Hi Michelle, I hope you are recovering and feeling better from the bug or virus. Your post is lovely, the birds are pretty and I love the snow covered pine tree. THanks for hosting another week even while you are feeling sick. Take care! {HUGS} Eileen
