Hi Hetty here – it’s been another day – and I’ve just spent quite a time studying the other native birds in our garden. The pidgeon called Sherman (by my human – she likes to name the familiar birds) scoffed all the food in the bowl, the robin (called Mr Robin – how original!), bobbed about but couldn’t get a look in, the blackbird (Mr Scuttlebug) squawked a lot and the sparrow made enough noise for all of us. I just quietly observed the antics from my cage.
There was noise from the little and large planes and a helicopter flying about – they frighten me. Luckily my human was on hand to scratch my head and assure me it was alright.
Ah!! the peace of the countryside.
Mr M came and joined us after the football had finished. That’s why it is quiet – the male species are watching the footie (and some females).
They’ve got it wrong – balls are for chewing not kicking – well that’s my take on it – but I’m only a Bird.
Hope you all had a great Bank Holiday Weekend. I know this is a little late but I have been painting the fence ( 16 sides and 1 gate) to be precise !
Unfortunately, I thought that I had been bitten but a visit to the doctor revealed that I had bleeding under the skin and have some nasty bruises on my legs – so much for getting your legs out in the sunshine. Have to get a blood test done to find the cause.
Anyway, I eventually had some relaxing time and it was warm enough to bring Hetty outside and hung her cage in the shade of the Cherry tree …………….
In the first picture Hetty is busy shredding some celery…… then whetting the beak and finally posing with me.
My human will keep photo-bombing my posing for pictures. If I was only bigger I could block her out. Not that I don’t love her unconditionally peck peck (kisses for the un-intiated) but you sometimes a girl needs her space.
I have created this blog to share my interest in all forms of stitching, quilting, sewing, knitting, medieval re-enactment and costume making - particularly my love of historical embroidery. I also love travelling,especially when it also involves any of my other interests.
