Thursday 8th February

Sunrise; As I drew the curtains this morning the world was bathed in rose-pink.  A flock of homing pigeons flew by, tipping their wings so that their undersides were caught by the colour.  The perfect timing by birds as they turn, such as starlings and golden plovers and pigeons of course tell us that dna play a big part in all actions, but what a marvellous sight when nature becomes complicit in beauty.







Update;

What else, the putting together of the dolls house goes on slowly as I puzzle over staircases and windows...




Where I should end up! ;)
Quote of the Day;

There is, perhaps, no better way to appreciate the tragedy of 21st-century global inequality than by watching a billionaire spend $90m launching a $100,000 car into the far reaches of the solar system. Taken from the Guardian.

  1. House building looks like it's going to be a challenge but fun.

    1. Yes, I quite enjoy the planning though and the staircases are up now.

  2. Years ago, my husband and I built a doll house for one of our daughters. It was probably tedious, but we sure had fun giving it to her and watching her play with it.


    The winter sunrises have been spectacular. This year I have noticed and appreciated them more and more. It is the best part of my day.

    1. And of course it only appears for a few minutes, to capture it visually is to capture gold....

  3. I am sure we could match that quote almost every day Thelma. A friend has just returned from India shocked by the poverty and the
    wealth.

    1. I get the Guardian headlines every morning Pat, pay a monthly fee. But what is rather wicked, is that the chap gets money from his government for electric cars, but the company is in debt.

    1. Tabor you have a very good camera (of which I am envious) and take beautiful nature photos but I decided to stick with my old camera for it records what I want to see, I am too old to change and learn something new.
