Tree Trunk, Love and Goodbye Gig

15 Mar

1   Coming home from town this morning, I walked on the other side of the road to be in the sun, which was warm, and noticed this lovely twisted tree trunk in the midst of the bright green new growth of Crocosmia.

2   These two are often in the tree outside our bedroom window. I like to think that they are a couple much in love! Does anyone know if they do, indeed, mate for life as swans do?



3   The Gig tonight is to say Goodbye to one of our lovely choir members who is off to Glasgow. She will be taking her special Choir-baby, T, with her of course and we will miss them both so much. We’ll also be raising money for Red Nose Day.

    I love the Jackdaws, Sally, sitting just fine. So sweetly, quietly, sitting living.

    Re the twisted trunk – my pot plant at work has actually begun leaning away from my computer. I’ve taken it home this weekend, hoping to revive its spirit. True. It’s beside me right now.

      I hope your plant revives now that you have it at home. I love watching the Jackdaws, ‘sweetly, quietly, sitting, living’ so beautifully put in your own inimitable style. 🙂

    What a pair of precious lovebirds – I mean jackdaws!

    According to the Wiki page on Jackdaws — Some pairs do separate in the first few months, but almost all pairings of over six months’ duration are lifelong.

    So it seems that some may have flings in their youth, then settle down shortly afterwards. 😉

      So we do have a pair of lovers in our tree! I thought so! We’ve been watching this pair for almost 5 years but of course, to us they all look alike so I’ve never been entirely sure. Now I am! 🙂

        I hope she was a Primary School teacher… or the Post Office lady. 🙂
