Tranquil Thursday

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The video I have selected for this post is a short one minute clip entitled "Zen Blue Heron."  I found it lovely and relaxing.  Enjoy!

I have mentioned in previous posts how much I love animals and being in nature;  taking nature walks.  I also like to take a walk in a cemetery occasionally, as I find it quiet and relaxing.  The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took in the summer of 2010 in a Montreal Cemetery.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.



Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.

  4. He is stately, a sentinel on guard, slowly turning. And your water fountain in the cemetery grounds, so peaceful for all to see. Cheers from Jean

  8. I love the nature sounds in the video! They are indeed relaxing. I find it rather comforting to walk in a cemetery and look at the names and remember people I knew who are buried there.

  13. Hi Linda, thank you for visiting my humble blog and leaving a message. Hope you are coping well with cold, here in OZ we are sometimes experiencing extreme heat but we are used to it. Weather can be so unpredictable.

    Hope you are having a good week.

    Blessings,
    Aida

  31. A beautiful bird and a beautiful cemetery. It reminds me of the one where my grandmother used to take us for walks in the evening. It was not far from their house and it was well-maintained and landscaped.
