It's weekend, enjoy!
Thanks to all those who sent me get well wishes - I am feeling less groggy
so your good wishes helped!
My hybrid collage for Art Journal Journey, maps, led me once again to London. I made some templates from some images from a prospect that arrived in my mail box, and used them to map out some ladies. I was inspired by thoughts of 'Swinging London' back in my youth, and made them into swinging ladies dancing over the Thames. The background map is courtesy of Wikipedia, and once again shows the area where I grew up, went to school etc. I'm afraid there will be more London collages coming this month!
Here is has hardly rained today, which is good, as the water in the Rhine is still much too high, although it hasn't yet reached the danger mark. The rain and storms should be abating by Tuesday, so hopefully all shall be well. Some places have been badly damaged by the floods, I feel so sorry for the people who have lost everything this way.
The cormorant now has an island all alone:
The jetty is almost at the same height as the embankment:
There is still more than a yard before the water spills over the wall:
These pigeons drive me crazy. They like visiting my balcony, land on the flowers, pull them out, knock down the feeders, make themselves comfortable on MY recliner, and eat everything if they get a chance....
and they look so sweet and innocent!
The poor jay got soaked again yesterday evening, and came back for a feed just before it got dark:
My wellies are my best companions just now!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
