Simple Lunch, Chilly Pigeon and Blue Tipped Feather

20 Feb

1    We bought some lovely tender stem broccoli yesterday and today had it for lunch, asparagus style, with a beautifully poached very fresh egg. Delicious!

2    There was such a bitter wind today and this rather pretty pigeon was feeling the cold as were we.

3    Walking home up the lane, this fluffy little pale blue-tipped feather was being blown around. Whose might it have been?

And a bonus tonight. As I was just writing this, I realised that the sunset was really rather lovely so here you are, dear readers: tonight’s lovely, somewhat subdued, sunset.

    I refuse to think pigeons are cute and you can’t make me!!!
    Great set though.
    Lunch looks delicious.

      Actually, I’m not over fond of pigeons myself but I did feel sorry for this one – he looked so cold.

      Lunch was delicious! 🙂

    Lovely pigeon – perhaps he is a racing pigeon having a rest on his way home.

      Perhaps so! He was looking cold and resting on the steps of the sculpture in the middle of town. 🙂
