1 Inspired by something I read on a blog this morning http://enjoyingcreating.wordpress.com/ I got some half-dead fruit out of the compost and made these bird food treats to hang on our Christmas tree – which will be ‘planted’ outside as soon as it stops raining! I also made a pastry bird-seed cake in the hope of both nourishing the birds and luring them closer to my camera!
2 I do love macro raindrops on this tiny moss.
3 These Avalon Elf Coats are the most beautiful bits of clothing I’ve ever come across!
4 And, at last, I have my book list for the staircase of books (but as my big brother said, it could be a different list tomorrow!) I agree with Valerie that really I need the staircase in a lighthouse!
‘Under Milk Wood’ Dylan Thomas
Poems of Pablo Neruda
‘Othello’ Shakespeare (How can I choose just one play? Perhaps I should have ‘The Complete Works’ )
‘The Book Thief’ Marcus Zusak
‘Far From The Madding Crowd’ Thomas Hardy
‘Jeremy Visick’ David Wiseman (my Dad!)
‘Kes’ Barry Hines
‘Sophie’s Choice’ William Stryron
‘Winnie-the-Pooh’ A A Milne
‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ Harper Lee
‘Rebecca’ Daphne Du Maurier
Do let me know what your choices would be and thank you to those who already have.
And to all my Australian readers – I hope you and yours are safe as we hear the news of the terrible fires sweeping across your country.
