We have had red poppies in our garden for several years, this year they are very ruffled, and so weighty, the stems droop very low.
Baby birds have been chirping for some days, but are usually hidden.Today there was one lonely blackbird baby on the back lawn.He/she was very vocal, I will edit the video tomorrow.
I lay down on the grass and managed to get very,very,VERY close. The chick was not fazed at all… then with no time to go back to movie mode,
“ Along came The Cat”, Felicity walked up, got very close, like really personal, and finally after the wee chick seemed to peck her nose, she leapt away. the right place at the right time.
The Felicity was off, just one glance to see if this had been real!!!
The late afternoon sun highlighted the Chestnut tree and touched the taller trees, ours are in shadow on the left, the right hand side ones are across the stream
Quotation of the day, from Robert Louis Stevenson,
“ I will make you brooches and toys for your delight
Of bird-song at morning and star-shine at night”
