Peace Be With You

My friend Lily sent me two photos today, taken with a point-and-shoot camera, from inside their home.

See the dove peeking out?

They have built a nest.  Lots of birds flock by Lily's house.  Thanks for the photos, Lily.  

See the two little grey birdies, top left window pane?

Just had to share, such a good sign, I think.

When angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of wings, nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove; but
we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts.

  1. Beautiful photos and quote! Doves are so special I think.


  2. Love the saying at the end Barb. I think they are a sign.

  3. I don't remember having a spring with so many doves and birds in general. I sit out on the back porch and they are everywhere and just sing their little hearts out.


  4. How cute. We love seeing a pair of doves eating under our feeders. Enjoy your afternoon. We're getting a rain shower right now...much needed!

  5. Had to really look because I thought, at first, that a portion of the tree was dying. Silly me. It must be lovely to have doves...mourning?...nesting in a tree near the house. I love those soft coos...far better than the caw caws of the crows I'm getting.

    Your friend has a pretty valence on her window!

  6. I'll never get tired of seeing birds in their nests...there is something about it that brings out that childlike wonder in all of us!


  7. The nest is a such beautiful view from the window! Very cute the two birds inside!

  8. That's a lovely view! It would be difficult for me to take care of my chores. I would want to be watching them all the time.:-)

  9. Olá! Tudo bem??

    Vim retribuir a sua visita aqui no meu cantinho!
    Obrigada pelo comentário carinhoso!

    Volte sempre!!!>>>Passe lá e pegue um selinho de agradecimento!

    Doce abraço e beijinhuxxx, Marie.

  10. Lovely.
    We used to keep fantail doves but the kestrel came.
    Now we just have the wild ring doves which sit on the chimney and coo to us.

  11. I came eye to eye with a female dove sitting on an/some(?) eggs in a nest in my yard once. I felt bad for disturbing her and slowly backed away:@)

  12. Sweet post! I love mourning doves and the sound they make :)

  13. My 50 something eyes had to enlarge the photo to see what you were talking about. Ha! So glad I did. I just love this time of year when new birdie families are popping up everywhere.
    Thanks for sharing, Barbara.

  14. I just took a pic of three little birds all lined up in a row on the edge of our roof today. My favorites are the Cardinals. Thanks for the treat. Cherry Kay

  15. And I just took a pic of a tiny bitty hummingbird sitting is his tiny bitty nest. We have a saying in VN that 'birds only land to good home' and they bring good karma :)
    Thank you for visiting us at Pret-a-Vivre, I also love your review of the Great Gatsby and I can't wait to see it.

  16. Don't you just love to watch the birds? I love to see where they nest, too.


  17. How cute! We have birds always nesting on our bushes too and hanging planters.....Christine

  18. Dearest Barbara,
    Beautiful pictures and lovely quote♡♡♡ And I think wondrful for her to sent you; thoughtful presents, aren't they :)))

    I would have budgerigar if only my house were bigger (^^;)

    Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  19. What lovely pictures - spring is certainly around your neck of the woods. We don't have trees in our yard, but our neighbour has them along our fence line. I can stand at the kitchen window and watch the waxeyes and bigger birds feeding.
    It's the beginning of winter here but still quite mild.


  20. Definitely meant for you, Barbara! Two birdies, indeed!! How sweet of your friend to send you those - love it!!

  21. Aww Peace be with you, too, dear Barbara! I loved the quote at the end, too. xo

  22. Based on when you posted this, you had no idea that a storm was going to devastate Oklahoma. What a God given post to wake up to this morning.

    I had to search for the dove at first, but I found it!

    Peace be with you this morning.

  23. I would never have known in a million years that that was a dove!!! Wow!!! May peace be with you and yours always.

  24. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me. The birds are very busy in our yard!

  25. ... and also with you. : )
    The birds are cute. We had a ton of doves around here. I think they migrate to the tree in our back yard because they hear our pet Dove ( Pearl ) cooing all day long.

  26. And ith you Barbara:) lovely pictures!!

  27. I love doves! Wish more would come to my house.

  28. Yeah, they LOOK cute, but when they're squawking outside your bedroom window at 4 frickin' thirty EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING, you're ready to shoot them! LOL

    I can't wait for mine to grow up & fly the nest so I can get some sleep!!

    Hope you have a safe & touching Memorial Day.


  29. We had two nests this year and I was horrified when several people (including my sister) wanted to knock them down for me. I love seeing the mama watching over her babies. I got a photo of a baby shortly after leaving the nest and will post it one of these days. So sweet.

  30. Oh this is so sweet! Beautiful quote too. Have a lovely week. :)

  31. I love these kinds of shots - nature at it's finest!


  32. Peace be with you Barbara.
    We have wrens in the big birdhouse on the back porch most years. This year we believe they have decided to move to the birdhouse on a stand. There are doves in the evergreen next to porch. And the hummingbirds are beginning to show up.:-)

  33. It is a lucky sign when birdies choose to make their home and raise their babies near you. They sense a warm loving presence, ... you!

  34. Barbara,
    Yes, I do see the little birdies - how wonderful. I just saw a nest the other day in a tree and had to take a picture of it. Isn't it such a sight when we come across them? I love the angel quote, and I do think there are angels among us.

    Have a nice Sunday.
