Roll on summer so we can see some of these . . . although this variety is quite rare in the UK. 
For the illustration friday theme of wings.

I've always liked to believe that Unicorns did once exist.

My Jack Russell's got a new coat, bought just in time for the snow. As you can see he doesn't like it - he refused to look at me when this picture was being taken!

Stop and stare 17

Murmuration -I love this word used for a collection of starlings. We finally went to Brighton at dusk to see them flying over West Pier. Unfortunately the light was not good enough to get a photograph of the thousands that eventually gathered, this was just the start. Everyone was stopping to stare as they danced round and round in the most beautiful formations, it was very moving. We stayed until it was so cold My Jack Russell was shivering and we had to go home. There were many other interesting sights too.

New Year

Already 3 good things have happened this year ...

I'm so proud of my niece Alice - her painting was recently exhibited at the prestigious
Pallant House Gallery in Chichester.

It stopped raining, the sun came out and ...

I baked my first successful loaf of bread. Finally an edible loaf that was not so heavy it could have been used as a door stop! I hope your 2013 is off to a good start.
