0728/18th June 2022 Breakfast has been drawn out a bit since the introduction of wordle (4,5,6 and fr), worldle, globle, airportle, tridle ...and Tim had to go and mention yeardle...argh. Then, as I do the washing up, I have to keep stopping to take photographs, be it of clouds or creatures. Before I get around … Continue reading Give us our daily Red
Willow, 13th March 2022 It's, perfectly obvious that I am besotted with cats and animals in general. I love them for what they are. But I also love them for how they look. Nature's perfect creations. In this sequence the photos are similar and yet I like the tiny differences: Maybe only obvious to me … Continue reading Curious!
1306/9th March 2022 1129 1305 Personally, I prefer the later image! Snow was predicted but we rather scoffed at the idea when we went out this morning in light jumpers. "Too warm!" I said. But the world is white again. Overnight the bird baths froze so I made a "cake". Which then got dusted for … Continue reading Tails
May the people of Tibet and the Ukraine be free from those who would oppress them. And all others who suffer at the hand of monsters. May our leaders be endowed with wisdom and compassion. The world seems a dark place. It's hard to see a glimmer of light sometimes but I have to remind … Continue reading Seeing light
0710/27th January 2022 This was yesterday's dawn. A very simple artistic statement, comparatively, but certainly more exciting than today's bland GRAY. The early contrail set a pattern for the day. Air traffic seemed to be rushing every which way. Later in the afternoon when I looked out, they were still at it: Then it was … Continue reading Extravaganza?
19th December 2021 As much as I love to see snow on the ground, our little wild friends have a hard time with it. This morning we saw that a possum has been wandering about, no doubt searching for food, so Grant was dispatched to procure peanuts. Not everyone likes possums, but they are good … Continue reading Cat shrink
1st July 2021 It's very hard, sometimes, to remember that my furry friends are wild and no matter what I read into their cute facial expressions, they do not share human emotion. Last night I captured a sequence of photographs that amused me but really, you can write your own story. Is it sibling affection? … Continue reading Poor little Petal
1514/30th June 2021 It wasn't what I would call a violent storm yesterday, but it was definitely moist. Very refreshing! I love a good rain storm. You know that saying about the lunatics taking over the asylum? We often used to say that in the office, back when I was a working woman, a hundred … Continue reading Who’s in charge?
3rd May, 2021 Thrashers at the watering hole yesterday afternoon. As far as I know, their lives are no harder than any other bird's. Except that I can never bring their name to mind when I see one, so they get called "Flashers" or "Dashers" or even "Road Runner", an entirely different bird. Lovely to … Continue reading It’s a hard life
1534/29th April 2021 Somebody's been taking lessons. Little Red's technique has been adapted to a much larger body. Grey squirrel used to reach the top of the porch post and find himself challenged by gravity, sliding back down. Little Red is so tiny, he doesn't have that problem. He gets to the top and launches … Continue reading Who runs this show?
