6 Days Hunting and Foraging

6 days of non-stop hunting and foraging.  Me and Mrs Robin are worn-out…. and there is still no chance of getting the children to move out.”

In truth they only have themselves to blame as this is their second nest this spring.

It is a strange world in which we humans live….  not that Robins have an easy life

As always can I ask you to

Spring into Summer….. Woodland Splendour

Lea-Woods-2

Lea Woods, Derwent Valley, Derbyshire

It will soon be June and officially summer.  Though I do think the woods are ahead of the game.  A canopy increasingly heavy with leaf and lush new growth on the woodland floor.

A great place for a walk …. but don’t rush, enjoy…. and of course

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

Silent Sunday……. Doves for Peace

_DOI4752_00035qqq

8000 White Paper “Peace Doves” have been used to create an a very different Art Installation at Derby Cathedral. It is the work of Artist and Sculptor Peter Walker.  The installation is on tour of the UK and on display here, above the Nave of Derby Cathedral, till the 12th June.

_DOI4726_00009qq

It has been an interactive display and messages of Peace have been added by School Children and other community groups, all part of Derby Cathedrals Community Initiatives

Just as a footnote.  The Doves really are white, the purple colour is from the backlights. I also believe at some of the larger Cathedrals there have been up to 18000 Doves.  It is a very different art installation, concept great and very evocative, the number of Doves can be overpowering ….. but a very appropriate statement for our current World problems.

As always……  This Sunday and everyday…….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
