This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

Blue Birds.............

Common-Kingfisher_RN-2 Above is a Kingfisher. His colour gleams in the sun and all one sees is a flash of light as he dives for a fish. Nature comes up with some wonderful colour schemes. I believe that God created them for our pleasure and His own. If there were no God then I am positive everything would be black and white. Beautiful as it is, black and white would be boring if it was the only choice. So here are a few pretty birds in blue. The Eastern BlueBird and Indigo Bunting are about the same colour blue, but the Bunting is pure blue. bluebirdsjpg Blue birds seem to have an angry expression all the time. That makes them look so cute. bluebirds1 Then we have the Peacock in all its glory. In England a lot of country homes have Peacocks in their gardens. The sound of their voice is distinct. peacockjpg Smiling Sally I will be sharing this post with Blue Monday. Thank you Smiling Sally for hosting.
