It's just really nice to see

Posted on Fri, 01 May 2020

It's just really nice to see another face coming along the road. I always try to be the one who crosses or steps out into the road but my whippets often cause me to have some delay (they always embarrass me or me them) so the other people beat me...

Posted on Tue, 28 Apr 2020

I love this, it's like a full literary meal of a poem. I particularly enjoyed your description of fallen cherry petals, 'wind-lipped , pale and panpipe soft, there could be no better way of describing them. Every line is reminiscent of the walks...

Who needs god when you have

Posted on Tue, 31 Mar 2020

Who needs god when you have the Too Ticky. Big fan of the Moomins and trees so this is right up my street. I'm kind of jealous, I want to find my own Moomin tree. Perhaps when the lady of the cold goes away I can find some new tree friend. So...

Beautiful aren't they

Posted on Mon, 30 Mar 2020

Beautiful aren't they Rhiannon and strangely waxy too as you describe.  There are a few examples of Soulangeana in my area looking their best right now, I admire them on my singular outing of the day and they significantly improve the quality of...

Thanks airyfairy. They're quite common I think, with a round furry body and the proboscis is like a needle, quite cute actually, well at least when you haven't seen many people for a while. You're right about our entitled stewardship of the...
