I could not tell which bird this was, but the song was so clear, in the late afternoon daylight.The sky looks blue, in this photo, but it has been really dull all day.
The sky is grey, dull, and very overcast, and the bare branches stand out against those clouds.
The rain began, and I gathered up some Cherry Tree leaves, and a few chestnuts, these were almost hidden in the grass.
This is an Ornamental Chestnut Tree, and in summer provides a shady canopy. Now the branches are almost bare.
The May FMQ challenge was so interesting, and for once it went a lot easier then the previous months.
I have used silk, from Bangalore in India, pellon in-between and a calico backing.
Clear fill in the bobbin, and King Tut cotton Superior thread on the pink fabric,
and Madeira Polyneon, on the gold silk.
Quotation of the day from Lord Alfred Tennyson
“ The last red leaf is whirled away,
The rooks are blown about the skies”
