 Our neighbors have a large tree in their garden
that produces massive clusters of yellow berries.
They ripen early in July and about this time of
year they are overly ripe and perfect for the bird
life here in Florida.  I love watching all the activity
by so many beautiful birds.
This morning, I heard an unmistakable conversation
high up in the berry tree. Seems a mother crow was
showing her youngster dinner for the day.

The youngster is making an observation
in this photo.....

Not quite willing to pluck the
ripe berries just yet.....proceeds
 feeding from mother once again.

Most likely this will not go on much longer
as the youth seems to have surpassed mother
in size completely. She will have to wean
this rather large baby bird soon.

I love nature, don't you?  Dee Dee

No Knead Bread

Nothing is finer than a kitchen that
smells of fresh baked bread. 
Photo taken by my daughter, the 
bread is a hit with her large family.

Instructions can be found on Google...
"Even a four year old can do it" article.

Have a blessed day, everyone.  Dee Dee

They grow in a large pot located beneath
a small palm tree.  The sunlight is filtered,
protecting the young and tender plants.

Today I brought a few inside and placed
them in a kitchen window.

Summer is fun......

Have a sweet ole' day.....Dee Dee
