Visiting, Colour and Free Food

23 Oct

I had a delightful visit with a lovely choir friend this morning, treated to Lemon Drizzle Cake and coffee and special cookies to bring home. Suddenly J said, “There’s a heron in the garden!” and there it was, just 6′ away at first. He was eyeing up the fish in the pond but took to flight when I stepped out to get more pictures.  Here are the photos I managed to get of this elegant creature. Apparently the Heron signifies patience, just waiting and going with the flow – seems about right for these strange times.

Walking home I passed a lovely  tree, covered in gloriously glowing Autumnal colours.

A bit further on, along the lane, were some delicious Blackberries and I remembered to take the photo this time before I ate them all!

      Yes and no! My friend sent a message today to say that it had been back when she wasn’t looking and all her fish have gone! 🙁

        Oh, no. He was obviously casing the joint!

    Aren’t Herons wonderful. I managed to see one on my walk two weeks ago in the park.

      They are very elegant and beautiful – but this one came back and ate all the fish in my friend’s pond. 🙁

      Yes, but he returned and had a good meal of all Jan’s fish in the pond! 🙁
