Fun With August Colors & Letters

Today is August 3rd, a beautiful Saturday, and a new feeder has been added to the yard. CitySonnet’s challenge for today is the letter F so I have a House Finch be the first visitor to the new feeder.

House Finch

I had heard that saffron seeds were a favorite of some birds and not a favorite of squirrels, so we are giving a new food a try.

Come join in all month to see the wide variety of pictures that come from our camera’s eye.

I also tie in with Granny Shot It and her prompt of Bird of the Day. I enjoy the several types of Finches that graze at my feeders.

It has been great to tie in with Cee’s Challenge list so that you can add in other people’s fun with prompts and photography. 

As you enjoy everyone’s view on natures beauty, remember to share that beauty with a smile and the kindness of its beauty.

July Colors ‘n Letters

I have been meaning to play along with CitySonnet’s challenges this month and just haven’t so I am jumping in with the last two days together – Jellyfish and Algae green as they both have to do with water.

I love the different things that you can find at true art fairs, not the ones that draw you in only to be crafts fairs or someone junk. There is one that I miss going to in Georgia over Labor Day that is usually fabulous and I picked up these two paper weights of jellyfish. He told me that he did not color them that this was their actual color and since my knowledge of jellyfish would not fill a small seashell, I believed him, as they were still fascinating.


The bubbles add a special realistic look to them. He did tell me that he swirled one as the solution was getting thick to give the “arms” their fashion flare.

I thought I would show both sides as it is such an interesting creature, at least to me. And the large bubbles make it look alive. And since they are almost algae green, I thought they were green enough to pass for July 31st challenge.

As you browse over all the thinks that you enjoy that ,make you smile, remember to share that smile with someone who may not have a smile. Your smile could be just the thing to bring a smile to them.


Starts with an “F”, CitySonnet Letters

Fun Silliness Poetry? Foolishly we Jest.

Fuzzy clouds in billowing shapes bring hopes of relief from heat,


Fly resting on petals and basking in sun with hopes they score a treat,


Fuzzy worm found a treat and make me mad by eating my flower,


Funny smells through the crack in the door, Mimi shows her guard power.


City Sonnet with the July Challenge of Colors and Letters has for today the Letter “F”. So you have a quirky makeshift Fun poem to make you smile.

Try to take life a little less serious so that fun can seep in and make you smile. Share that smile with others and be kind.
