Free

Quail-spotting


Yesterday whilst standing at the kitchen sink, I spotted these beauties through the screen covered window. The skies were clear and the breeze light and inviting. They were frolicking about so freely that I thought, "Hey, I should do that". So I put the dishtowel down, put my walking shoes on, summoned Yael Rose and off we went. Three miles, a pair of cute vegan moccasins, two gorgeous throw pillows and a venti-1/2-sweet-iced-green-tea later, I realized why birds don't carry cash, or collapsible bags on wheels.



Peace

Oh dear!! Next time just watch the birds :)
Your photograph is a beautiful image, reminding us birds have much to teach us about the concentration of just being.

ROFL!! A smile-inducing post if I ever read one! You are hilarious! But um, are you gonna show us the throw pillows? I'm a throw-pillow addict with no hope (or desire) for recovery!
