Wow! I've never heard that kind of bird chatter, nor have I seen very many parrots. How beautiful, they are so colorful, bet they look like flying flowers. How pretty!

I sure am enjoying all your videos Dianne - I think you should sell them to hospitals. They would be so calming to watch which you're stuck in a hospital bed Lovey dubby

I hadn't thought of hospitals but I had thought of the many times I had played those songs in my art classroom when I was teaching. The students liked to work on paintings to the sound of classy instrumentals. These videos would be inspiring for them.

Dianne, your picture/music videos are sooooo good! I will be coming back to them often, especially this winter.

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

They would be nice for the educational programs that libraries have sometimes. Our little county chain of libraries are great about things like that and often do special programs in the evenings for children and adults. And somehow with grants and money from the tax base here we have the most beautiful new library about a block or two from my house. Gorgeous building and so busy sometimes we have to park in the grocery parking lot across the street. The videos would be perfect for those kinds of libraries too.

Group hug Thank you everyone! I'm now *Blush* so much!
I have downloaded some to discs .. that started when my parents could no longer travel from where they were living to where we are .. something just short of 600klms in one direction .. and then I did some some of just flowers, family etc etc for my Mum for 'cognitive reinforcement' when her dementia wasn't too bad .. the nurses suggested it, as I'd been bringing photos when we could visit, but the discs could be left there & other residents could enjoy them .. I've never thought of getting paid to do them!
Oh, I've also done videos for a Real Estate agent for some their clients to keep & to upload it to their listing .. I did get paid for that .. and I've done one for our place, as we are trying to sell & move to where there's more space for more gardens & at least one more bedroom for visitors, as we have only 2 now. Thumbs up I think we must be nuts, but it'll keep us busy!

Here's 'our place' as loaded to YouTube:

What a beautiful home and gardens. Just incredibly lovely.
And your video is just as lovely. I am not sure I could very easily let go of all that beauty.

Yes, Sharon .. a daunting thought for us as well .. but there are 'neighbour aspects' here that will not change & unfortunately, 'society' lets them 'rule the roost' while others who are effected have no rights .. so, it's off to where there are NO neighbours!

Dianne, your home and gardens are just beautiful. I hope you get a quick sale, and that the buyer keeps up with all of your beautiful landscaping and plants. And that you are able to find just the perfect property. I can certainly understand your desire to be out of your present neighborhood and to where you can do what you like.

TY, MaryE .. yes, one would think that life could be lived as we want, in quietness, peace, harmony and amongst that which we have created for those purposes, without disruption or harm from 'outside' .. but, sadly, there are so many compromises throughout life along the way .. but, this is ONE I will not make ..

MaryE, did you post some pics in another thread re 'neighbours' & such around you? If so, it's like that ..

Mary has great neighbors but I think it was Toni, Skiekitty, who has problems with hers.

Ah, yes .. like that .. the kids there recently started taking the tiles off the roof, smashing them & the concrete grouting, throwing it everywhere .. while 'mother' was inside, doing nothing .. hope it rains & caves the ceiling in on them .. not very nice, but it'll get them out Thumbs up
