Just For The Birds

I am very fortunate to have plenty of wildlife here in my garden in heavenly Devon, and I try to capture photos whenever I can. The woodpecker is the most difficult one to capture with the camera, because he is off at the slightest movement or noise. I shall have to sit myself on a chair and learn to be patient - and very quiet! I did manage to take this one shot, although the quality isn't really very good. 

There is a quotation that says "you are nearer to God in a garden, than anywhere else on earth".

I'm also over on Pinterest, where I have a Board entitled Bird Houses. I have picked out a few of the prettiest ones to show here, and I do hope you will enjoy looking at them. 

See you again next time round.

This next one would look delightful hanging beside my little caravan!

"We Will Remember Them"

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them."

In the United Kingdom today, the Queen will lead the Country in honouring the fallen, after a two minute silence at the Cenotaph in London. 

This is a day for the Nation to remember and honour all those men and women who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom. 

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below. (Excerpt from In Flanders Fields by John McCrae).

November? More Like Summer!

Well my friends, Halloween is over for another year. I know some people are against it, but surely it is only a bit of fun?  I realize that folks in the U.S. Now have Thanksgiving to look forward to, but I'm now really looking forward to Christmas already, and decorating the house!  Here are a couple of photos of my youngest grandchildren. The first one taken last night, and the second one in 2014. 

Well, it might be the 1st November, but here in heavenly Devon, it really is like a Summer's day. Really warm and sunny with clear blue skies. I'm actually up in my little caravan writing this. 

We have had some wonderful days this week, and one morning I was out in my jammies trying to capture the beautiful sunrise. Photos taken with the camera on my iPhone. I loved the sheep walking towards me as they emerged from the mist. 

Well, on that note, I will leave you once again. I hope you enjoyed the photos today. Take care little bloggies.
