And then the - -

- - sun came out, and the grey disappeared and suddenly it was spring!The daffy down dillys danced in the sunlight and the sea shimmered and sparkled and I had no choice but set off down the glen and up to the headland - the golden afternoon light dragged me outside before I had even taken my coat off from coming in from work. It is only a short walk, 20 to 25 minutes at the most - but oh I am so glad I made the effort. The glen was full of birdsong - - I wish I could recognise the birds by their song - I can't - but I did SEE a robin, a chaffinch and a blackbird - and a moorhen in the pool at the bottom of the waterfall.
Shimelle's class is proving to be just as thought provoking as last time I participated - and though I am not scrapping a page this evening - I rushed out without taking my camera! DOH! I have been a busy little bee - making some crispy cakes for our fundraising cake sale tomorrow. We hope to raise enough to purchase at least one Shelter Box to replace those sent to Japan as a result of the earthquake/tsunami. Last time we raised enough for 2 and a half boxes, hope we can do it again! Wish us luck.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Sounds like you had an eventful time. I just love birds. I saw a really cute little bird yesterday in the courtyard at work don't know what type it was but it almost looked like my step-mom's canary it was yellow and black.

  2. What a lovely lyrical post! I really enjoyed reading this one.


Hi and welcome - thanks for taking the time to let me know you called.
