Monochrome Weekend

I went to the hairdresser today.
This corner is separated from the washing area by a mirrored folding screen.

WD40 is something I don't normally expect to see there!

Aileni started this theme.
Many very fine photos can be found through the Monochrome site.

Monochrome Weekend

This spring I grew a hyacinth in a glass. After the flower died I moved the glass - and the sun shone through!

Busy Birds

The Blue Tits are busy!
About a week ago I saw one investigating the nest box that's been on the side of our shed for about a year.
Today, as we were in the kitchen, one of the birds flew inside the box with some grass in its beak.
This happened again and again (interspersed with aggressive behaviour towards a visiting Chaffinch)
I was lucky enough to grab these three shots.

Just look at that beak-full of moss!

And here's some dry grass.

Is anyone out there?

These aren't the best bird photos ever posted on a blog, but I'm so thrilled to have caught them. Believe me, I'll be watching events very carefully!

Upside-down world.

High tide on a very calm day.
