Beautiful jay, on my bird table...
My friend K. brought me some 'old 'bread,
and the birds are greatly happy with the yummy yummy snacks.

young Blackbird

The young blackbirds are learning quickly.
Still screaming for mom, to feed them,
yet able to feed themselves.

Mole 13


Mole said finally:
'I think I start getting it,
that you really love me.
Are you sure?' he questioned again.
'How is this possible, I am so ugly and fat!'

'I don't think you are ugly at all,' White Rabbit said.
'I think you're beautiful.'

wren baby

Yesterday I heard a thump on my window, I saw something falling to the ground.
A bird! was my first thought.
I saw Bibi (cat) sitting near, running to the fallen bird.
I said, screaming 'NO!'
and ran also, to the door.
Bibi ran away with the bird under the garden bench.
Again I said 'NO! NO!'
Bibi ran away, bird in his beak, away from the bench to the grass.
I ran after him, saying again 'NO Bibi! NO, NO, NO!!'
Bibi stopped, sat down in the grass and dropped the little bird on the ground...(good cat)
I snatched the bird away as fast as I could.(relief..sigh)

Birdy still alive, vivid bright eyes...looking frightend by the double triple shock.
(window, cat, me)
A gorgeous tiny, tiny young wren sat in my hand, having a lovely very short tiny tail.
looking....staring at the tumbling, shaking world around him.

I opened my hand...
fffffr rrr rrrrr rrr r rrr  r r r r r r r t !

young blackbird

You can hear him from a far distance,


A screaming young blackbird, screaming, yelling for food.
He is his spotted, speckled coat and wide yellow beak.

Mole traces

A Mole has visited my garden.
I think it's kind of funny, because of my writing a story about Mole.
However today he came again, ruining my garden a bit more.
I am not sure anymore if I still like it...

It fits exactly

'It fits exactly' must Fluffy have thought,
when he choose my box with knitting wool to sleep in.
The wool in the box is very soft and fluffy kid mohair,
so that must be the reason to sleep on, I guess.
But if it fits...?
Cats always think different!

young treecreeper

Yesterday late, my neighbor A. came along through the rain.
In her hand sat a young bird, which had flown against the window.
I was happy to see the bird had vivid eyes...and when I held it in my hands I felt a slight trembling, like purring when you feel a cat's purr, but then more soft.
He was warm, and immediately recognized the bird by his beautiful long sharp beak for catching insects.
He was spotted on the back, dark brown/black spots surrounded by lighter brown..very, very small bird, long brown tail...
It was a young treecreeper....
such a beauty... such a beautiful bill.
A little later I thought he was able to fly again, so I opened my hand...
With his long toes and nails, he dangled a moment on my fingers and then sat for a while on top of my hand.
So that I could admire his very long toes with tiny sharp nails, with a very tight grip.

Then he flew high a fir tree.

Its summer in my house...though outside its raining cats and dogs.

There has formed a lake on a rose leaf.
It exactly shows how lovely summer weather is here.

Mol 12

'I am sooo Ugly, stammered Mole behind his tears..I am so f..fat..
And nobody likes me... he sighed.
They all stare at me with those looks....
they all think I am...a big Fatty'   and...he continued sobbing a while, while his tears kept falling.
White rabbit hugged Mole so long till he became still and all his words calmed down.

Mole 11

Mole sat down on the doormat, while his tears flowed like a flood.
White Rabbit put his arms around Mole and whispered in his ears 'I love you! '
Mole started crying even more louder....
and tried to say between his sobs.....I am soo...sooo

Mole 10


....'I just wanted to say I love you.'
Mole's eyes filled with tears...and then started sobbing loudly.
At first White Rabbit did not know what to say,
meanwhile grabbing Mole's glasses before they touched the ground.

Fluffy never thought about sleeping in the bookcase,
I think he saw Bibi lying there a few days ago and that gave him this bright idea.
I wonder if Fluffy is a copycat.

The red flower gave a sweet delightful scent.
Mole put his nose into the flower,
and it was as if the fragrance embraced him all over like a warm cloud.

Bibi discovered a new place to my bookcase on one of the shelves, on top of papers, behind my computer,
He likes to sit there when I am doing something on my kind of company.

Fluffy however...wants to sit/lay down exactly on the same place where I am drawing...
sometimes I can draw him a little to the side.
