IT'S TOO HOT TO GO LOOKING FOR DERELICTION!
It’s just after 9 a.m. and it is already very hot, so there is no way we will be going out to search for dereliction after church today!
I decided to just potter around in the garden and take a few photographs of the various flowers; fortunately most of them are still in the shade, so I just pointed and clicked. The honeysuckle and roses smell beautiful and it was good to see so many flowers - in fact, this collage is just a small selection of the ones in our back garden.
The passion flower in the bottom left photograph was given to us by a fellow Blipper, when we visited her and her husband in Cornwall a couple of years ago - we have nurtured the three plants and they are now rewarding us with these beautiful flowers.
As I wandered, I could hear the birds singing, and we have Great Tits nesting in our box again, so I could hear the little ones tweeting - I think they may fledge soon, but for the moment Mum or Dad still goes in regularly with tiny grubs to feed them - they must be exhausted.
When we were sitting in the garden yesterday, we saw Jays, Blue Tits, Great Tits, Gold Finches, Starlings, Sparrows and a young Great Spotted Woodpecker - so I made sure I had my Canon with the large zoom next to me - see my extra.
I don’t find Father’s Day easy, for many reasons, and often feel quite emotional when I see what people write about how wonderful their father is or was, so today, I am going to think about how fortunate I am to have a Heavenly Father who loves and cares for me and who has provided such beauty in creation for me to enjoy.
