The rains have come...
and with it, a flurry of activities from the songsters of the air
but really, little songster...
must you sit on my just washed laundry?
please leave the song behind, but don't forget to take your calling card with you
listen to the mockingbird, they say
these like to mimic the chirpings of Pilgrim's Farm's chickies
but oh! the sweet trills of this wee finch...
if only I could know his name
and who doesn't know the sociable, noisy starling
this one was just passing through and I never saw him again
the starlings on the island prefer the hubbub of people activity by the beaches and hotels...
lots of food around there
breadfruit on the tree was ready to pick
one with a picker...
one I could reach with my hand
under the tree was a most interesting fungus plant that I do not know...
growing from a piece of old branch cast down from the tree
up close and personal, it looked like something from the sea with a spongy moist flesh
I didn't touch, not knowing
and all those citrus blooms have been growing into fruit with a promise of sweet and tart edibles
can't go by the wild things in nature without noticing
they have their place, too
adding their little world of beauty
giving visual delight and fragrant sweetness
of course, Pip the roo, is trying his hen to woo
with some impressive wing flapping...
and a little dance...
Pip is giving it his best
the little hen is neither impressed nor interested
papayas are ready to pick and while these two will use a good two days of ripening, still
this one was good to go for breakfast
enzymes for good digestion
for awhile there, I thought my lemon grass plants would die on me...
the dry season took their toll and almost did them in
but, when the rains came...so did new leaves...
and now they're looking so much nicer; and greener
think we'll have enough mangoes to snack on?
the dry season is actually much kinder to mango blooms
too much rain will fell most of their flowers...
but, when it's dry, the flowers have a chance to develop into fruit...
and when the rains do come, will hurry on the fruits' development
always, there is the perpetual nesting activity going on...
and the small finches of this nest do love to put their homes in most peculiar places
so what was for breakfast?
what came off the farm; fresh eggs, papaya, boiled breadfruit with butter and seasalt...
and some local grown bacon
by the way, if you eat papaya, eat a few of the seeds...
great for enzymes and anti-parasitic
I always chew mine to get the benefits better
and here...the jar of Pilgrim's Farm raw honey promised for the drawing
the honeybees worked hard to make this honey...
and the Lord gave them the ability and stamina to turn the gathered nectar...
into a sweet, aromatic delight
the give-away is from June 6 to June 20

The Lord God said...
He hath made the earth by His power,
He hath established the world by His wisdom,
and hath stretched out the heaven by His understanding.
When He uttereth His voice,
there is a multitude of waters in the heavens;
and He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth:
He maketh lightenings with rain,
and bringeth forth the wind out of His treasures.
May your day or night find blessings in God's grace.
