The Ballerinas Got Wet.

I was taking photos of the ballerinas

  when I heard a rumble. I looked up and saw this

 So I went inside, but the ballerinas had to stay outside and get wet.

 Can you see the mistake?

I thought you might like to meet Geoff

 The Guardian of the Arm Chair

 He was fun to knit using my homespun Gotland x shetland wool.

Nightime Visitors

We have at least one neighbour who visits us after dark and sometimes we have two neighbours visiting. My next door neighbour often provides these visitors with supper. The supper plate provided me with the perfect opportunity to introduce Billy to you. Billy was named by my neighbour, but I suspect that Billy is a girl.

Last night conditions felt just right and I had a feeling that I might get a photo of Billy, so I set my camera to night vision and hoped for the best. I know that Billy has been coming at a regular time for the last week or two, so at the appropriate hour I tiptoed out of the house and peered over the fence.

There he/she was about two yards away from me. I wish I had a better camera.

I willed him/her to look my way

Soon supper was finished and there was movement

What a thrill! Just one yard away from me.

I feel so privileged to have these animals visit.

What do you think, girl or boy?

Coffee Time

Sat in the garden having a cup of coffee.

Being entertained by these little characters having a bath

and squabbling over the seed feeders.

Suddenly spotting this shield bug sitting on a sack of weeds

 and then finding this.

 Wish you had smelly vision

I haven't grown any tomatoes this year, but luckily my neighbours have. "Would you like some?" said S. Daft question, of course I would. "Will you use them?" said S. (I think she must have seen my bucket of apples go in the bin.) "Tomato Soup" I said.

Well S., I used them and very nice they were too.
