I do so love my early morning walks with Poppy.
Up with the birds we are out climbing through the garden,
heading for the hills behind the cottage.
I set out with my trusty camera and my heart filled with excitement,
for i never know what or even who we may come across!
Visitors this week
* Even before we set out, I saw Mr Hare from the studio window as he loped by, he's becoming a regular, maybe he's asking to be painted!
* I heard Mr woodpecker loudly knocking, and later came across him & his new lady doing a spectacular mating dance, calling & fluttering about up in the trees.
* Poppy followed mysterious hoof prints in the mud from the garden, across the bridge over the stream, and up the path into the woods and there, a tiny Roe deer snapping off grassy stems.
* and we were serenaded by this sweet little chaffinch who followed us a wee while. You can hear their call on this you-tube clip here .
These visitors to my garden remind me of how very lucky I am to live where I do surrounded by all this beauty. Do you see or hear visitors near by? Have a beautiful weekend all x
