Birds, cats and more

Hi Everybody!

The weekend has flown by, and a new week is here - have a good one!

For Art Journal Journey I have a water-coloured tree with white birds. I made this at the beginning of the month, and discovered it today hiding under a pile of other bits and bobs, so here it is.





Gabi took these lovely pictures of  Lucky and Lilly:




Nature is definitely getting greener:



Here at the stream near where I live I saw a Kingfisher today, which made me really happy. He flew off before I could take a photo.


I found this photo on Wikipedia


The wonderful photo was taken by Andreas Trepte
 Thanks to Andreas and all those who share their wonderful pics over Wikipedia.

The Heron was out fishing this morning:


And a few yards further these two were doing the same:


Have a good day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  6. Wow.. gut dass Du die herrliche Seite gefunden hast... das könnte mir passieren..ich finde immer was angefangenes zwischendurch, das ich längst vergessen habe...lol.
    Wunderschön ist sie und Dein EIsvogle ist megagenial - da hast Du ein sensationelles Foto geschossen!
    Die beiden Vierbeiner haben es echt gut, ich muss unbedingt im nächsten Leben Hauskatze bei einem guten Frauchen werden hab ich beschlossen!

  28. Du warst ja wieder unglaublich fleißig in den letzten Tagen, wie du es schaffst, jeden Tag ein Kunstwerk zu kreieren, da staune ich immer!
    Doch war auch ich nicht untätig, kann die Sachen aber erst gegen Monatsende zeigen...

    1. I use a uni-bll signo, it's the only one that always writes and does not dry out.
