0804/27th January 2022 There's a certain type of tree here that changes colour in the Fall but doesn't shed its leaves. In the right kind of light, it's very lovely. It might be a better image, captured from a stationary position, but so far I haven't managed to coordinate this. If I was self-propelled, I … Continue reading *Invalid statement!
0855/25th January 2022 Just as I finished sorting another download of photographs, Grant said that on such a splendid afternoon we should be out driving around. He was right and we had a nice outing, but now I am all behind. I'm not sure he mentioned that we would be stopping to see a friend … Continue reading Cauliflower, cake & custard
0845/24th January 2022 This afternoon I've set myself a challenge... Write a quick post and then.... Do I dare attempt...to bake a cake? Is that a smiley face laughing at me? Usually I can do things when it's impromptu. It's only when I start planning that it all goes wrong. It's the man's birthday, you … Continue reading Cat Man
22nd January, 2022 You know it must be cold when ice has formed in the heated water bowl. We keep two of these bowls for wildlife. As well as the two that I bash ice out of every morning lately. Sometimes, Grant gets there first and I tell him he's depriving me of an outlet … Continue reading Where to next?
21st January, 2022 A stretch of water for the geese! What was it I said? "A brief afternoon excursion"? The fact that we would be headed somewhere south of Albany ought to have put me off, but the idea of spending an afternoon feeding laundry into Hal didn't have much appeal. Skirting Albany was too … Continue reading Oh Hal!
18th January 2022 Grant has proposed a short afternoon drive and as it's a lovely day and I am in an unlovely mood, maybe it would be a good thing to get out for a bit... NUTS! As I was on my way out to the feeders, I stopped inside the front door so as … Continue reading NUTS!
Yesterday for a few moments, the sky took on the appearance of ripples in a stream. Which reminded me of what seems to be a rare condition, which had occurred the day before. According to my weather app, it had been: "A fine day for fishing." That day, it would have to have been ice … Continue reading It’s all in the eye…
Domestic Snow Leopard A slightly balmier temperature this morning encouraged the walkers to make a short sortie: Grant was off on a shopping expedition that held no interest for me so I declined the offer of escort duties. After all I had an outing yesterday and I wouldn't want to overdo things! There was no … Continue reading Surprise?
0704/18th January, 2022 There is was again, that band of colour around the horizon. Pink, this morning. I noticed that distant clouds were brightly rimmed and knew I must keep an eye on developments. Though we would be leaving soon and I had my morning duties to attend. Birds and squirrels are extra hungry, these … Continue reading Early show
30th December 2021 Today's photograph was chosen by Toby. He was poking my hand to persuade me to give him a treat from my drawer and when I looked up, somehow the above photo was on the screen. On the left, an osprey nest on a power pole. This was one of those very grey … Continue reading Keeping warm
