  On our walk this morning Barney and I saw some amazing leaves. They come in all shapes and sizes, but the colours are the most beautiful thing. From the highest point of the common I could see and misty grey of Lincoln cathedral and in front, the flame coloured leaves of a young horse chestnut tree. Every day is different, best of all is seeing the barn owl.... and here's Barney, off on some doggy quest which I as a mere mortal can never understand.....

Most months we have tawny owls in the garden. One wonderful summer we had baby owls roosting in the willow tree. They squeaked and shouted throughout the day, wouldn't go to sleep and were always hungry. We could visit them by walking under the hanging willow branches and they would look down in surprise. Recently husband and I had a holiday in Ironbridge. We visited the Jackman Tile Museum. Here are some owls we saw. Now I badly want an owl on the roof.....real, pottery, carved , I don't mind, they just have such a presence!

New Neighbour

Looking out of my kitchen window  I realise I have a new neighbour. She is a most glamourous lady and today wears a very fashionable pair of strippy tights in brown and yellow. Her legs are very long and slim, the kind of legs I'd love to own. Actually she wears four pairs of tights.... and I think she will become a yummy mummy next year...
