Forward - From the Heartland of Carolina

This is a continuing story of the journey Forward shared by 2 people, Lynne and Tom. Both love to LIVE life to it's fullest, which currently means spending lots of time outdoors, working on various projects from gardens to patios, flowers to vegetables, sunrises and sunsets, birds and woodland critters, and spending time with family. Don't forget to check the monthly archives, and please feel free to leave us a comment so we know you stopped by.

Somewhere over the Rainbow, Bluebirds fly...

Occasionally, we're fortunate enough to catch their journey. We were lucky enough to have several nesting pairs this spring/summer, some with multiple broods. A while back, Lynne posted that the front yard birdbath was overtaken with one small flock of them. Since that post, the bluebirds are still around almost daily. These pictures show them investigating 3 of the houses we have, and the birdbath conference that took place back in September.

Oh, the rainbow? It was a picture captured from my old hometown back at the beach on October 10, in the middle of a stormy spell, all related to the recent hurricanes. We're still waiting to hear from friends that were in WILMA'S path down in Florida last week. Some have finally gotten power back a week later, so hopefully, things for these friends will be looking brighter soon, as well. Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to all those who have been affected by this fall's onslaught of storms and flooding. †
