Happy New Year

Today I spent the last day of 2016 walking the garden and taking it all in.  We had a beautiful sunny day and the temperature was in the mid sixties, something rare for us these days.
 This little guy is a regular winter visitor to the garden.  According to my bird guide this is a Northern Watherthrush Warbler.  He is an experience traveler, spending summers in Canada and winters down in South Florida, the Caribbean and Central America.

 Yellow Sulphurs butterfly, they are fast flyers and difficult to photograph.
 This is my lunch room crowd

I like to end the year with this quote from Gabriel Garcia Marquez
"It is not true that people stop pursuing their dreams because they are getting older.  They grow old because they stop pursuing their dreams"
I hope all your dreams come true in 2017.

Your garden is full,of life. You just can't beat winter in a Florida - even the wildlife would agree. Best wishes to you in 2017!
