1642/15th January 2023 Yesterday afternoon's 15 minute art show. . Friday 13th had been delightfully soggy and scenic. Foggy, too. Summit Lake's Winter look. Not nearly as frozen as it usually is in January. There is always colour to be found. Even if it's only the centre line of a rural road. The lid of … Continue reading Finding colour
13th January 2023 Not much came up since yesterday, certainly not the temperature, but before I drag you off on another soggy cross country trawl... The sudden return of cold weather caused an increase of interest in the feeding stations and brought us a new, rather jolly little visitor. Usually when I respond to a … Continue reading Simplicity
1308/13th January 2023 "So what do you guys do for entertainment?" "Oh, we go riding around in rainstorms." Well, sometimes. Not something we try to do often, but one should keep an open mind. The cat's thyroid medication was about to run out. Usually it comes in the mail, but it's a holiday weekend. And … Continue reading Change of scene
7th January 2023 Once upon a time, in the remote days of my youth, one owned a brainless alarm clock that had two settings, those being "On" and "Off". A simpleton such as myself could manage these choices. Even the "Snooze" setting had not yet been invented for the benefit of those poor souls who … Continue reading AI..ai..oh!
9th January 2023 Many other birds come and go through the year but there is seldom a day when I don't see doves. They mostly perch in a rather dilapidated tree that we call the "waiting room", because that's where birds often congregate before the seed trays are filled. When I looked them up, the … Continue reading Time to communicate
0711/11th January 2023 Dawn this morning was a challenge, photographically. It was occurring on the wrong side of the car in which we were speeding along. As always we left promptly, but had forgotten to take into account school buses. It seems kids start class earlier these days. In Greenwich just as we turned a … Continue reading Grounded?
0840/10th January 2023 Just enough sunlight leaked through this morning to cut a stripe on the hill across the way, so of course I abandoned the washing up and went outside. Only to be accosted by: Actually, that's not quite right. In fact, I noticed him on top of the sumac bush, fishing for I … Continue reading Strengths and feathers
7th January, 2023 Having driven around in a circle through the countryside, we set course for home avoiding further scenic detours. Clouds were boiling on the horizon Cresting the hill and rolling down into the valley I couldn't decide which view I liked best Maybe I am guilty of slight overkill? But when I see … Continue reading No disappointments
7th January 2023 Perhaps I should rename my blog: "Clouds over Cambridge" But that would not be accurate as they aren't all over Cambridge. And cats are still my main thing. This fine chap was patrolling a field. Yesterday was a particularly splendid cloud day and I have quite a few more images to share. … Continue reading Jumpsuits?
0720/7th January 2023 Most mornings, I can muster the semblance of a reasonable mood. Today I felt more inclined to box a few cat ears. Even the bird seed went out late. However, I was persuaded that getting out of the house would bring about improvements in my attitude. Luckily, the camera survived being slung … Continue reading Odd couple
