PALM WARBLER


This is an old photograph and one I shared before years ago.  I haven't taken any photos over the last few days, so am going back into my archives.  We found this little bird in the Everglades in Florida.  I had never seen one quite like it before.  The original photo was in regular color.  This one I played with again years ago, and I came across it recently in a folder.

You can see his true coloring and find out more about him here.

I hope your week is going well.  We visited friends for a sit-down chat and a cup of tea.  It was lovely!  These moments in a day are part of those treasures I enjoy.  


Rain is headed this way over the weekend. I hope where you are the weather will be sunny and warm.  I find myself heading for a hot drink more and more, so that I can feel toasty while I warm my hands around the tea cup.  Small pleasures, great treasures, true.

I won't be posting over the weekend.  Enjoy whatever you are doing and take good care of yourselves.  I will be here on Monday with a new recipe.

  1. I have t taken any pictures since Oct. 21st. I was ill a couple days this week; feeling better now. We had planned to take our daughter and family to Pumpkintown on Saturday, but decided against it with all the rain in the forecast. Instead we will meet for breakfast on Sunday morning. Have a great weekend, De use and Gregg!

    1. Hi Linda, I hope you are feeling much better. I am hoping the rain won't mess up our plans either. Breakfast with your family sounds very nice. You have a great weekend and Gregg says hi.

  2. The warblers are so confusing to me! I would have mistaken this one for a sparrow. It is to rain all weekend here, too. And right now I am drinking a large cup of coffee and warming my hands with the mug! Hoping you have a great, though rainy, weekend.

    1. They seem as small as a sparrow, I can see why the confusion. Stay warm and dry! ;)

  11. Having tea with friends just sounds so relaxing and fun Denise. Yesterday it was rainy and cool, which is my kind of weather. So I was able to work on my Planner and finish some other projects around the house. I'm waiting for 30-40 degree weather every day please.(lol) Hope your weekend was amazing! Hugs...RO

    1. It was fun RO, very pleasant. I enjoy that kind of weather too RO, and the rain as long as it doesn't hang around too long, The gardens always love it and so do our farmers, at least not too much and just enough. I sound like Goldilocks, LOL. I Had a great weekend and I hope you did too :)

  12. Hi Denise,
    Thank you so much for your kind reaction about my fattened little grandson Jahnay. Next week Wednesday or 31 October it is a year ago but it still feels like the day of yesterday.

    I really like your photo of the palm singer. The colors come out nicely and the photo is pretty clear :-)
    In the Netherlands there is a lot of rain now and we are really deep in autumn now.
    I wish you a very nice evening.

    Dear greetings,
    Helma

  13. Hi Denise,
    Super image of the Palm Warbler, such a colorful little bird and also noisy.
    It has suddenly become very cold in England and we had some sleet this afternoon.
    All the best, John

    1. So glad Debbie and thank you. It is a time of the year when I enjoy things getting a little cooler, probably because of the humidity. All the best to you too :)
