Very first thing this morning, before we'd even had breakfast, we were surprised to see this drift past the window! Well it's very warm and sunny - I'd be up there too if I could!
I grabbed my camera and managed to catch sight of it again just before it drifted out of sight beyond the roof of my workroom.
Before you email to ask, those strange mesh covered tunnels are a cunning device to keep bugs off our vegetables! While I was in the garden with my camera poised I took the opportunity to photograph one of our chickens. She's a young Maran - beautiful markings and lovely brown eggs when she's old enough. We got her as an egg and we're relieved she's a hen - her feet are so enormous we fully expected her to grow into an ostrich!
Hard to believe she's the same little scrap of life I showed you back in the spring! Her she is with her Mom only a day old.
Putting all of the distractions aside, I've been back in my workroom and I added a bit more paint to the poppy seedhead painting as you can see below. It's only a quick sketch but I've enjoyed it and am determined to do more!
Thanks for visiting!
I'll be in touch again soon,
