Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

      1. It is like the Angel Oak tree in South Carolina – I’ve not seen it, but it is a tourist attraction as it is so old and because of the way it grows (wide). It has its own website for goodness sake, but here are a few factoids:
        The Angel Oak receives approximately 400,000 visitors each year. The tree is 65 feet high with a circumference of 25.5 feet, shading an area of 17,000 square feet.


      2. That is cool and there was an alligator in Key West who was like a “guard dog” at a little beachfront restaurant. It actually had a muzzle on it and was very tame, (the owner’s pet), but it had a tee-shirt with the name of the restaurant on it – just fun stuff, something we need in an age of so much down news.

      3. Yes, it would be fun and I guess with a muzzle on it, it is free to roam and does not go after anyone. I found a story on the alligator and will send it to you to read and show the kids. I guess they use it to educate kids at schools about alligators too.


      4. Squeals and howls of terror too! We have a snake person in San Jose who runs a snake farm and educational visits to libraries. We went to see his sessions 2 times; I have a picture of a giant yellow snake around my shoulders.

      5. Oh my – I would squeal at that believe me! I was at Lake Erie Metropark and in the woods on a path, when suddenly a foot-long snake slithered across the path and into the ground cover. Too quick to take a photo and my heat must’ve come out of my chest. That sounds like a cool picture of the snake though. I was in Parrot Jungle many years ago and you can have as many parrots as you want “loaded” on your outstretched arms and on your shoulder. I have a picture grimacing while trying to balance all the parrots.
