 I love this about blackbirds

Posted on Mon, 18 Oct 2021

 I love this about blackbirds : " its natural flair for tossing leaves"  made me smile each time I read it :0)

It must be 45 years or so

Posted on Mon, 11 Oct 2021

I like the elementals in this

Posted on Sun, 10 Oct 2021

I like the elementals in this so much, and had not heard of the baby on a swan's wing, so looked it up. So, thankyou for that too!
