Oh what a beautiful morrrrrning, oh what a beauuuutiful dayyyyyyyy......
It's sunny and getting warm, the birdies are tweeting and it can't help but brush away the cobwebs. My first job this morning was to collect up a barrow load of tiny twigs for the kindling box. And after the recent storms there is no shortage of twigs and branches lying around, my goodness we have some cleaning up to do! Steve busied himself with the chainsaw, working on his precious woodpile.
Oh yes, before I forget - I've had .a few queries about the fate of Rabbit, the dear little joey who lost half her ear. Well, she is absolutely fine! Her ear has healed up completely as far as we can see and she looks healthy and happy. I was going to take a photo of her this morning but all the roos had scarpered after Steve started up the chainsaw.
We are getting right into enjoying performances here, so we've booked our next one already, The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards are coming in November, really looking forward to that one too, nothing like a good set of bagpipes and some kilts :-)
Ian Griffiths from Cornwall, UK. He specialises in parrot paintings, from all countries. He wrote to me because he was being commissioned to do a large painting of Red Tailed Black Cockatoos, an endangered parrot from Australia, and was trying to find someone who does habitat photography as he likes to be accurate with the trees and foliage the birds inhabit. I didn't know anyone, but as the Red Tails live in this area and feed in our trees I offered to take some photos of our trees for him, if that would help. The poor man, I think I exploded his brain as I ended up sending him over 200 photos ha ha.
Ian's website is http://www.artbygriff.com/ and his Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/Wildlife-artist-Ian-Griffiths-122881387886979/
if you get a chance, do go and have a look at his work, he is a very talented man.
