White stands for purity,
Purity in thought and deed.
Each flower has a different character
yet they all share the same quality.

Osprey, Ready for the Hunt
Yesterday this amazing bird showed up right
in front of my house. I love, love, love
when nature comes to me instead of me
having to "hunt down" nature.
I looked up in the Animal Totem
what a Osprey signifies and what
does it have to teach me.
An Osprey is a Bird of Prey
that feeds off fresh water fish.
It is a bird that is most comfortable in
the air but in order to catch it's prey it
dives into the water and submerges itself to
catch it's meal.
When a Osprey presents itself to you, it's message
is to go beyond your comfort zone and to reach
for what was once thought of as unreachable.
I consider my visit with the Osprey yesterday as a sign of power.
REACH FOR THE UNREACHABLE
by Margot Carerra
I don't have much space but what I have
I use to the max.
On my porch you will find my new Vegetable garden.
I just bought three old Whiskey barrels cut in half
and in them I put mixed soil for potted plants
and soil amendment. Then I planted
2 yellow squash plants and two yellow peppers.
The second barrel I planted just one Zucchini plant all by itself.
It seemed to want the barrel all to itself. Then the third barrel
was used for my two tomato plants.
I will let them settle for about a week before I feed them.
I watered them. I am told not to water too heavily as the
potted plant soil holds a lot of water.
Next week I will check the garden and post how
the garden looks. Sorry for the shaky video. I will
also learn how to take a better video.
Lavender Fields with Arch
Bumble Bee and Lavender
I want to take a moment to focus on the Bees.
They have recently come endangered by
some of the chemicals used in pesticides.
They are finding large numbers of bees
that have been killed by pesticides used
for agriculture. It has also been noticed
that the number of bees are on the decline.
This is quite serious because the job of the
bee is to pollinate the plants. No bees = less
plants. Try not to use pesticides in your gardens.
Learn how to grow an organic garden.
We NEED our Bees.

Margot Sherry Bogdanow-Carrera’s lifelong dedication to nature photography, her preferred art form for portraying this Earth, the planet unto which we are born and bound to preserve, is evident throughout her website: www.CarreraFineArt.com. Nature, in return, provides us with everything necessary for the spiritual journey we take while we remain on Earth. Too many of us, preoccupied with our daily struggle to survive, have lost sight of that promise, forgetting that if we had cared for Earth, there would be no struggle. Margot Carrera’s avowed insightful and artistic intent is to remind humankind of their connection to and with Nature, to remember that every one of us are – or should be – devoted stewards of this Earth. One can readily observe her special bond with every object she photographs and how this inspires each memorable image. “When you look at my website,” says Carrera, “you will discover at least one singular image that speaks directly to you and helps you to recall your own beautiful connection to Earth."
