Swan, Chimneypot and Adventures

15 Apr

1. We walked beside the Little Ouse into Thetford today and saw swans, coots, Mallards and ducklings.
2. There are lots of interesting buildings in the town. I liked these chimney pots.
3. Grandbaby B enjoyed her adventures in the park.

    Yeah for pictures, poo poo the ****** apple.

    A stroll in the park, with a garment recognized. I must say, age appropriate coterie -she wears the forest green and forest cloth very well, with head tilted with just the right amount of awe. From that level am sure the trees take fairytale titian proportions. -now wheres that bean stalk?

    Your rooftop ‘high in the sky’ sculpture, sanctimoniously the overseer and not just full of hot air.

    Your trumpeter swan, most regal and wise, A poet swan I see, taking time to reflect on himself in the reflection of shore willows weeping.

    The swan picture is just fantastic. And of course the grandbaby too. 🙂 (not such a baby anymore)

      You are right, not such a baby, she turned two just last week and is a real chatterbox, a delight to spend time with. 🙂

    I would help out with my Thetford photos from 30 yrs ago, but they are buried in a box somewhere! It was blossom time, and sunny, when my late BFF and I had a lovely stroll around town.

    Do you want me to slip over an kick your wordpress?

    Just before I went on vacation, the wild swans were in migration to there more northern haunts, one field had about five hundred resting and eating on corn stubble. We get Whistlers and Tundra swans, these were Whistlers. Tundra are faun-ish off white in colour and smaller, fly in larger flocks than Whistlers and seldom stop over.

    Just like Mama Cormier I’ll wait patiently for the digital proof of the pudding (swans, Coots, buildings and chimney pots).

      I have never seen more than half a dozen swans at any one time. It must be just wonderful to see so many at once.

      I have managed to add my photos this morning but couldn’t finish my last comment as the ****** iPad froze mid comment. All the best to you 🙂

        Thanks for the photos. Very nice. Love the reflection in the pond and those chimney pots are amazing. We don’t have them here.

          When we go home I will show you my collection of chimney pots. Lots are taken down as people have central heating put in and my Mum collected them to use as planters. I have most of her collection and some of them are very interesting. Thank you for coming back to see the photos. 🙂
