1 Had a lovely visit with L who is only 7 weeks off having her baby. She is using some of my Granny’s crochet squares which my Mum had kept for ever and making them into a cot blanket. The blanket will have been made by the baby’s Mum and his/her Great Great Granny! What a treasure that will be.
2 From L&T’s window can be seen a great variety of bird life including a Cock Pheasant and his four lady friends, two pairs of Woodpeckers, multitudes of Tits, Nuthatches, Siskins, Robins, Jays, Blackbirds, Dunnocks, Chaffinches and Sparrows.
3 Driving home into the sunset, the sun’s rays were quite dramatic in the obnubilating sky. New word? It was to me too. See this post.

By that crocheted blanket you give me recall of how my Mother’s mother used to make such blankets, and send them from Perth across to Melbourne, to my household where I was with dad. It was precious to snuggle into.

What a lovely memory to have and I’m delighted that I triggered it for you Love to you and Daniel 🙂

obnubilate new to me as well, but spellchecker says don’t you mean jubilation. I say given your photo, either or works. Woodpeckers we have plenty, pheasants not as many -instead we’re overrun by wild turkeys -legged with wings and otherwise.

Obnubilate means to darken and I’m getting my fabulous new words from ‘The Horologicon – A Day’s Jaunt Through the Lost Words of the English Language’ by Mark Forsyth. It’s great fun! 🙂

I love the inter-generational continuity of your family life.. – it’s so rare and wonderful to have been able to keep so many things from the past, and to know their history.
Birds- gorgeous… even a pheasant and his lady friends… and what a scoop the woodpecker…. .

I was so pleased that L wanted to use the squares. They’ve been in a cupboard for so long and are now going to be seen and loved properly. 🙂

Such a beautiful blanket, Sally, and lovely details when it (and bird pics) are enlarged.

Thanks to you, I enlarged the pictures too and saw detail I hadn’t seen before! 🙂

February 22, 2013 at 2:22 pm
All of them beautiful! Thank you 🙂

wonderful that you captured the woodpecker – I often hear them at home when I pass a local park, but rarely see them

I took lots of shots but most of them were blurred as he was moving so quickly! Wish we had them at home. It’s a treat to see them when we visit L. 🙂
