Rainbow, Fat Ball and Frock

13 Jan

1   There was a glorious rainbow in the middle of one of our stormy showers today. If you look really closely, you can just make out its pale mirror image.

2   Walking through the park to town this afternoon, I noticed that some kind and thoughtful soul had hung a fat-ball for the birds in the young Auraucaria.

3   In one of my favourite shops, Cornish Bird in the Sticks, there were these beautiful little frocks for beautiful little Granddaughters! The middle one here is my favourite.

    I love rainbows and perfect for today – it is a rainy and dreary start to the day.

    Killer rainbow!…..though it appears the crows on chimney could careless, despite having a crows nest view.

    Ce qui est foxball ?

    Partial to squirrel frock as well -something about squirrels that wee minds find weird and wonderful.

      The fatball is a ball of suet filled with bird seed for the birds to eat. They love them so it was fun to see one in the park – though there were no birds! 🙂

    There are few things outside of people that are more special in this world than rainbows…Gorgeous pictures.

      I agree. I posted another on Thursday, across the water and with boats in the picture too. That one was glorious too. 🙂
