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. Can you imagine my surprise when I saw a woodpecker’s home and it’s perfectly visible?! I thought they just pecked trunks and didn’t know they made a home inside. Two woodpeckers took turns flying in and out. Thank you for your keen observation of my photo!

  1. Very cool find for you and the kids Esther. Woodpeckers are destructive. There is an old, long-dead tree at the Park. I don’t know if Rex, the Red-bellied woodpecker decimated it or it was already a goner, but the amount of holes in it just blows me away.


    1. I didn’t think that they could be destructive…but you’re right. If they keep pecking those holes, that could bring down a tree quickly. We don’t see too many woodpeckers here except at some parks. I’ll tell them about this destructive nature of woodpeckers. I remember the tree stump from one of your photos; chomped away by the beavers!!

      1. I looked for the woodpecker photos – every key word did not bring up that post. It was a bright-blue sky and I had several shots of the woodpecker drilling its beak into the dead tree – hundreds of holes. Wish I could find it. I didn’t start tagging things until two or three years ago, if that long. The beavers’ destruction at the Marsh just blew me away – very destructive and big trees too!
