I found a rather startled blackbird perched on my garden hose yesterday morning. By the time I’d grabbed my camera she’d unruffled her feathers, moved to the bench and was looking more with it. She mostly kept to the patio area all afternoon – she can fly though so all is well 🙂
During quiet contemplation on a Sunday morning, a potential menace approaches…
I’ve been making gift tags from last year’s Christmas cards – an annual family tradition 🙂
It’s only now that I see one of them features a bench. Perfect.
Have a good Christmas everyone.
Sign of the Times will be back in the New Year.
Seen at the end of the line at the farm park next to the Launceston railway. The bird was posing pretty much all day.
There’s more about this little one over at Veg Plotting today…
This rather grand building was indeed used to house pigeons at Painswick Rococo Garden and dates from the 18th Century. The interior doesn’t match the exterior – the outside upper storey is octagonal with 8 windows, inside it is circular with 4 windows.
The facade of Wells Cathedral is covered with statues and gargoyles and is very ornate. At first all you can see is the mellow stone and how the rain and winds over centuries have eroded the limestone.
Then you notice how every nook and cranny is filled with pigeons.
The birds on this statue made me think of St. Francis of Assisi.
