Blue tits party

Suddenly this afternoon, there were at least 9 blue tits flying around the birdbath.
They eagerly wanted to have a bath all at the same time.
So fun to see.
5 were willing to pose for the camera.

soap bubbles

Lovely shiny colors in the sink, while doing some cleaning.
Suddenly there appears something beautiful, while doing just the ordinary.

This morning I noticed a dragonfly, floating in the pond.
I looked closer, to see better if he was alive or already gone.
He did n't move anymore, so I could see very close.

His fragile, translucent wings are so extremely beautiful made!

Iwings 11 years

Iwings has his birthday today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
11 years on the wings!
While drawing, all the animals wanted to fly today...but that became too crowded,
so we had to choose.
The ones who stayed home were waving to the ones up.
even Fluffy helped me blurring the wet ink.

It raining all day long, like yesterday and the day before yesterday.
Hmmmm, kind of have enough of all the showers.
Though in the garden, it is not that bad...

Thalictrum bells

Little fragile purple bells gently opening.
I you listen carefully you can almost hear them ringing and twinkling.

When I looked this morning to the newly painted pond, together with M.
We noticed that on some places the paint had become white-ish, a much brighter color that the other parts.
I can't think of why or how that happened.
Wondering about that, M. said it was a the pond.
When we looked better it really was, kind of, if you use your imagination.
It even has wings.
The unicorn really makes you wonder.

shimmering lights

Today I filled the pond again with water.
I had been empty and dry for some weeks, because I had to repaint the whole thing.
Today as I filled it with water,
suddenly there appeared these shimmering shining lights in the water!
So beautiful!

It looks like this sparrow had a bath in the gutter.
He was preening and cleaning himself so relaxed,
so that you can see he really enjoyed his time-out.

While being away,
On my way I encountered these beauties.
Young swallows, almost ready for flight.
Being fed by their such a way, that I was hardly be able to capture.
