birds stars trees and a new book






this one's not dead either, although you couldn't tell by the look of him (her?) he's not tweeting or anything, not a whisper to be heard. I checked to see if he was breathing, the answer is yes
that's something at least

perhaps he's overcome by today's heavy heat and napping during until it's cool enough to be up and about



now there are stars and fruits and blossoms and the two birds are happy; they are exchanging chitchat and the latest gossip concerning matters in the BirdHut....you know how these things go: who's dating who? are there any break-ups.....who gets to sleep where? what's the latest in the new Customer Service Dept? do they get a lot of business or is everybody outdoors enjoying the sun?


whilst visiting my parents down south I treated myself to this wonderful book, bought in an amazing bookshop situated in a church (not my favourite bookshop in Maastricht but a close second!) I also ordered Salter's Light Years in the Tribune, which does happen to be my favourite bookshop in Holland - I'm visiting the old folks yet again next weekend as my mum's celebrating her 84th birthday

Saskia...those little birds are soooooooo sweet! Hope your Mom had a blessed birthday and many more healthy ones to come.

Saskia van Herwaarden said...

thank you Sue, she did; it was a lot of fun and we were fortunate with the weather: not too hot for the ladies in her town garden

re my previous answers: when I write them on my phone they are linked to your individual comments...now they seem random and without your names it is difficult to know what I said to whom, sorry about that
