Partial view from my hammock

This is a little reminder just for me: sometimes you just need a different perspective to catch the unexpected beauty around you.

A couple days ago I was hanging out in the hammock & looked up to spy these bright red blossoms at the
end of this tree's branches. It's like it was
decorated for Christmas in May. I couldn't help but smile.

Next? I heard funny little noises above me. One was a striking blue bird calling to announce the bounty available in the feeder. The other? A very young squirrel, poised directly above my head — I'm not sure which of us was more startled to see the other :-)
