This bird on the neighbours’ apple tree
Reminds me of that saying about
Birds not being afraid of the branches breaking
Because they trust in their own wings.
That self-confidence is the greatest gift
We can give our children.

Everyone should have a loyal friend —
With or without wispy ears —
To share a sunset with.

After the silence of winter,
Spring makes itself heard in the loud
Symphony of birds
Twittering, singing, warbling.
It’s a feathered harmony of music!

You never know what might be waiting for you
Over the brow of that hill you’re struggling to climb;
(Can you see Oscar waiting for me?)
Or what small delights await
Around the corner.
Please forgive me if I don’t get around to visiting you this weekend.
We’re having problems with the Internet, which makes it incredibly slow and painful to visit blogs at the moment.
In the meantime, pay a visit to: Camera Critters.
A girl, an Icelandic horse and a snowstorm.
For me, this embodies stoicism,
Spirit, true grit

Sometimes in the middle of winter
I like to nourish myself
With the patterns and colours
And silhouettes of vibrant summer.
This shot reminds me that
You don’t always have to go with the flow —
Going against it can also create beauty.

Please do not disturb…
I’m busy enjoying winter.
Let us love winter,
for it is the spring of genius.

He’s found some snow…
And a beautiful smile.
(A positive attitude and a great smile really are the best beauty aids, don’t you think?)

She appeared out of the sunlight
Walking stately yet with the limp of old age.
She looked kindly at me and Oscar –
Then turned back.
She waited for her old owner as she hobbled towards us on crutches.
“Please take a picture of Tosca!” she cried.
“She’s my only company now that my husband has died.”
Her faithful companion posed regally for her portrait
Before returning to her owner’s side.
(Today I printed out these two shots on big glossy paper and delivered them to Tosca’s house.
Big smiles all round.)
