2016/3rd August 2021 Do you think my life would make a good sitcom? Last night I glanced out the window, saw the sky and went running out the front door, only to notice a doe with her fawn not 20 feet away. "Oh, sorry!" I said, like the Englishwoman I am, turned around and rushed … Continue reading Wot I worry about
Not that I have ever seen the Nazca Lines, except in photographs, but this snail/slug trail reminded me of the patterns depicted by them. Another ancient site I would love to have seen. Things like this fascinate me. My time machine, if I had one, would take me back to see those lines being drawn. … Continue reading Not the Nazca lines…
31st July, 2021 For a change of scene, we went for a short drive yesterday afternoon, taking a rural route through the countryside and over the Vermont border, into Bennington. There's never a bad time to take a drive here, barring blizzards and rainstorms, of course. When we returned from Malta (the one in NY) … Continue reading Afternoon ride
0643/31st July 2021 The sun was already up when I first rolled off the bed this morning. But it was still too early and the cats indulged me for another 40 minutes. Then I went out to get pictures of the clouds and to check on "my" caterpillars. It's become very confusing, keeping track of … Continue reading Bugs!
30th July, 202` Every day I find myself more impressed and intrigued by Nature's designs. After an all-night downpour, the sun burned through. A solitary bud on the rose of Sharon that didn't disappear into some creature's tummy:( Next to the rose of Sharon, a little gap in the woods is full of lovely wildflowers … Continue reading Queen Anne
July 2021 Another appointment. No time for a proper post, so here's a silly story from this morning: Grant is seemingly addicted to curry and has learned to make it with some success I gather, though I cannot sample it myself being vegetarian and intolerant of spices. (My gut, that is) Like many men (I … Continue reading “Universal” messages?
25th July 2021 Forgoing lunch yesterday having not posted for two days, I persevered with what I was writing, deleted half of it and cobbled together a post about Willow. After all, she's "my child". I can always find something to say about her. And she is photogenic. So there it was, after a long … Continue reading No Crusade
1736/22nd July 2021 Rose of Sharon bloomed again today, so I dragged myself up there to get these shots. I still haven't found a bug identifier. Is this a fruit fly? It's a fly. It agreed to be photographed. More like the camera agreed to take its picture. Some days I struggle to convince that … Continue reading Not ER
For once a dove got first dibs on breakfast and she was not about to share, flapping her wings at the squirrel She did allow a sparrow to share. "What's poor squirrel to do, missus?" "Carrots aren't my thing." Don't worry. He won't starve. And neither will they! Everyone knows I feed the birds and … Continue reading Can’t we just share?
