#mayphotoaday - A smell I adore: #honeysuckle. My mom had a honeysuckle bush in the yard when we were kids; I remember she outside on summer evenings watering it. It smelled so lovely and sweet. #pa_photoaday2012 #asmelliadore #flowers #flowertherapy #pastormacsannflowers

momhugzz : Lovely story. Mmmm, can nearly smell the sweet scent! 😊
blessedwithgrace : I love the smell of honeysuckle as well. Reminds me of being a kid, playing in out backyard.
mimiwings : So wonderful!! But did you ever pull out the stem and taste the nectar? Happy childhood memories😍
pastormacsann : @mimiwings How funny you should mention it! I was just showing my kids how to do that today! I used to do that all the time as a kid too!

Had my #mayphotoaday for #bird all ready and then forgot to post it. My Birdie. He is a peach-faced lovebird and almost nine years go we adopted him because he was a "stray" who flew into our lives from who knows where. I never imagined having a bird for a pet but now I couldn't imagine life without him. He's very very sweet. #lovebird #pa_photoaday2012
spoospa : Awwww. I miss my Quaker parrots.. Both passed away this past year :(
mjp2 : We had a Quaker too! He learned the theme song for Cops, "Bad bird, bad bird. Watcha gonna do when they come for you."
momhugzz : Awe❤!! We had a Cockatiel. Loved him & our kids & Al too. But, I was with him the most. Would 🎶sing (of key!), he'd hear Al say: My Arn, Anne Marie, & I'd say: Pretty Bird every morning! I was scrubbing the kitchen floor & humming to the smell of bleach! And...🎶Pretty Bird & Arn....flowed! He said so many words. Miss him so. Love this picture, Ann. 💚💛❤
bookwormtwo : He sure looks sweet! I never wanted birds cuz I knew nothing about them nor knew anyone with birds. Boy, did I turn out to be quite the bird lady. But who knew such a small creature could steal my heart away?
mimiwings : Aw😍so precious!!

The Loretto Chapel. Santa Fe, NM. When was completed in 1878, there was no way to access the choir loft twenty-two feet above. Not uncommon of chapels of the time, when priests used ladders to climb into the lofts. But since Loretto was run by nuns, a staircase was needed. The chapel is too small for a conventional staircase. The sisters prayed for an answer. Legend has it that a mysterious carpenter appeared and with only a hammer, saw, T-square and buckets of hot water for shaping the wood created the miraculous structure. Months later, the staircase was completed and the carpenter disappeared without pay or thanks. The stairway confounds architects, engineers and master craftsmen. It makes over two complete 360-degree turns, stands 20’ tall and has no center support. It rests solely on its base and against the choir loft. The risers of the 33 steps are all of the same height. Made of an apparently extinct wood species, it was constructed with only square wooden pegs without glue or nails. When finished, the staircase had no handrails. The banister and balusters were added ten years later. It really is an amazing structure. #stairs #staircase #pa_photoaday2012 #santafe #lorettostaircase
lifenut : I've heard of that staircase and always wanted to see it. Thanks for sharing!
nattysxm : Amazing story
tephi : Very cool!
tishamattei : Beautiful! I bet it is even more amazing without the banisters. It would seem to just float.✨

Hit a slump. Just so little energy to post anything. But I'm going to try to catch up on my #aprilphotoaday #pa_photoaday2012 and see if that helps. “Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. #cold #snow #bw #bandwanyday
tishamattei : Hope your energy rebounds soon❤
apryl : I hope you have a great weekend, Ann!
raeraebaby : ❤❤❤
theselivingseas : I have felt like that so often! Wonderful and true quote. Is that recent snow?
pastormacsann : @theselivingseas Not too recent, but from our last one this spring.
pastormacsann : @tishamattei @apryl @raeraebaby thanks, friends.

I don't know who took this picture. But I can tell you that this is what I saw the very first time I laid eyes on my Ethiopian princess, Hiwot. Her name means "life" and you can see, like I did, when you look at this photo, that she is overflowing with life. And 5 years later, the same is true. #tiny #aprilphotoaday #pa_photoaday2012
_brooklyndragonfli_ : Gorgeous

Got this precious little #origami crane in the #mail from my IG friend @earl52. He folded it special just for me and inscribed a blessing in the wing. Doesn't get more special than that. Earl has made it his goal to fold 1000 paper cranes and give them away, just to encourage others. I think that's pretty amazing. And I'm glad to be counted among his 1000. #aprilphotoaday
relish : Isn't that @earl52 amazing? I have my crane sitting in the living room so I can see it every day. 😊
pastormacsann : #pa_photoaday2012
hcreatives : That's awesome! ✨🙏✨ @earl52
sundaystilwell : That is absolutely beautiful! Kudos to @earl52!
momhugzz : That is a blessing you are holding. Tedious love.

My 14 yr. old son, #1sondaniel, started this little diorama, got frustrated and threw it all away. I was happy to fish the pieces out of the #trash and later when he found I had saved it, he completed the project. I love it. It might have been trash for a few minutes, but it didn't belong there.
