Travel Theme: Off Centre

The Travel Theme is from Ailsa over at Where’s My Backpack.

Bertie Bee was almost drunk with excitement at the ripe and ready poppies, in fact he had to lie down to fully take advantage of the glories he found within!

"Yumzzzzzzz!" said Bertie in a state of delirium!

“Yumzzzzzzz!” said Bertie in a state of delirium!

And as always with me…a little closer!

And as always with me…a little closer!

I don't think I have ever seen a bee more covered in pollen!

Fairly Off Centre…both Bertie and the poppy!

That’s All!

Travel Theme: Fantastic

Ailsa has a travel blog and this week’s Travel theme is ‘Fantastic’.

I have made a fantastic discovery this week….a place where I can pop some bird food on a fence in a lovely wood and the birds will come and eat it whilst I take photos!

But I would like to introduce you to a very British little lady who, in my estimation, is definitely…

‘Fantastic’!

Roberta is very excited by the prospect of Spring…..the feeling of the sun on her feathers is swelling her heart and making her burst into song…...

Roberta is very excited by the prospect of Spring…..the feeling of the sun on her feathers is swelling her heart and making her burst into song……

"You may say'" she chirruped, "Spring has sprung, The grass is ris I wonder where the birdies is! Well let me tell you" she continued in a beautiful throaty warble…….

“You may say'” she chirruped, “Spring has sprung,
The grass is ris
I wonder where the birdies is!
Well let me tell you” she continued in a beautiful throaty warble…….

"I'm singing in the sun, Just singing in the sun, What a wonderful feeling My life is such fun!"

“I’m singing in the sun,
Just singing in the sun, What a wonderful feeling
My life is such great fun!”

She continued in this way for a good few minutes, then almost as quickly as she had started, she turned to me and….

"Oy you!" shouted Roberta, "Enough's enough….you had yer two penneth worth…now HOP IT!"

“Oy you!” shouted Roberta, “Enough’s enough….you had yer two penneth worth…now HOP IT!”

And with that she flounced off!

I still thought as he was fantastic though!

That’s All!

Travel Theme: Birds

Oh me oh my….almost my favourite possible Travel Theme!…..Birds!

Thank you Ailsa at ‘Where’s my Backpack’ for this theme which can be found here….

http://wheresmybackpack.com/2013/12/27/travel-theme-birds/

Yesterday was a beautiful, bright, cold, crisp morning and I went for a lovely walk in the fields behind my house. On my way back who should float over the horizon but this beautiful Red Kite.

I nearly fell over backwards a couple of times as I leant further and further over!

I had to stop breathing so I could concentrate hard enough to focus!
