sunset, east bradford

One of my readers snapped these shots the other evening on the way home from work. I am delighted to share them with you.

The nice thing about looking at photos like these is it reminds about the simple things that are important in life.

Family, nature, friends. The act of living. Being present in your life.

A lot of ugliness exists in the world today, so sometimes we forget about the little things like looking at a beautiful sunset.

We all should stop and enjoy the beauty every now and again shouldn’t we?

It is truly humbling when you can admire the simple beauty of a Chester County sunset.

christmas bluebirds

I love my own personal Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom that lives in our woods and in the gardens.  This year I have some new winter residents, Eastern Bluebirds.  I first saw them a month ago, and then I saw them again just now. It’s official, I’m in love.

These are the things that make living here in Chester County, PA so darn special. These are the things we need to conserve and preserve.  These are the things that all the wanton development spoils.  Tyvec wrapped stick frame construction with nary a tree to be seen can never, ever replace the simple joy of seeing bluebirds in your garden.

Anyway, if you enjoy the birds one of the things you can do is participate in Cornell’s Feeder Watch.  It’s fun! (My husband doesn’t know it yet, but I signed us back up!)
