Crikey just when you're trying wind down a little, the adrenalin hits the whirry thing. It went something along the lines of 'how are my red kite illustrations coming along?'..... 'When do you want them by?'....... 'Oh that soon'.....'Ahh!'...... Oh poo! Net result, two days of mayhem and whizzing brushes, equalling fourteen pics painted, scanned and in the post. Ah well, sometimes it goes like that. The book should be out for the Bird Fair - Red Kites - Ian Carter, published by Langford Press.
Still you can't beat a good rootle. I believe it was the Bard that wrote 'There's something rootle in the state of Denmark'. Great stuff! And that's what we've been up to..............................
.........Childing Pink, what's that all about? Answers via pigeon post please.
OOOPS! Fell asleep for a moment there, sorry about that.
Still you can't beat a good furtle - depending on your definition of furtling that is. I think it was Shakespeare that scribed in one of his lesser known plays 'I am that merry wanderer of the forest..... and sometime furtle I and make me smile'. Or perhaps it was Morrissey, always get those two mixed up.
Anyway, in between the wind and rain we've been out a few times in our usual haunts bothering the wildlife. Overall it's been a really odd spring and I suspect an even stranger summer is to come.
