Robin bathing

For some days, I saw robin having a bath. The first time he did, I had no camera within reach.
Another time I thought I had made some beautiful pics,
but then I noticed I had forgotten to place back my memory card in my camera.
Auch!!!! no photo's..
Then one day it was too dark...
Today I had another chance,  this time YESS!

Mr woodpecker comes everyday more than once, to have a snack out of the peanut butter jar.
He matches perfectly with the apples!

Splashing water

It has been quiet for a while.
The water was forgotten or not so interesting anymore.
But a few days ago Fluffy rediscovered his game 'splashing water'.
He made a huge storm in the jar of water….splashing the water all over.

When he is finished, my job is to cleanse the remains of the storm.

Birth stamp

Today I received in the mail, the birth card of Norah Jane, born on the 11th of October.
A lovely beautiful girl.
I designed the card and the stamps for her.
Inside the card, the baby's name is written in the banner.

As I did for for her brother Olaf.

Fluffy caterpillar2

Some days ago I spoke one of my friends M.
I shared about the weird looking caterpillar, I had found.
Then she said,  she had seen not so long ago, the same one!
To make sure, she send me a photo of the caterpillar.

This photo is so cute, showing all of his legs while he is climbing a grass.
So nice all these little legs…dangling and holding on tight.

The photo is made by Marja Kraamwinkel.(thanx for sharing)

Fluffy caterpillar

Yesterday I was going with my friend F. to the supermarket.
Out of my wheelchair, the world viewing from a lower perspective, I noticed the low and creeping crawly things on the street.

We passed a inkblack beetle
and then a weird looking green fluffy caterpillar.
I took him with me in a plastic bag…to find out more about his name.
The caterpillar suddenly had another higher, view from this plastic bag,
seeing a supermarket from the inside.
Later at home I opened the bag in my studio.
First he was a fluff ball, which unfolded slowly when he thought to be safe.
He started walking over my table and later he inspected a bag of spicenuts.
After some photo's, we put him outside under an oak, which he seemed to like better than supermarket nuts.

His name?  Pale Tussock Moth, Meridians borstel, ( Calliteara Pudibunda)

Stamps Janosch

Last week I was inspired to look for some birdstamps on the web.
On my search I found these beautiful stamps and ordered them from a collector.
I really love them.
Drawn by Janosch a well known German illustrator.

They are so cute and I love these drawings.
if you have some nice ones in store…just sitting there…
you can do me a great favor by sending them to me.   :-)

A few weeks ago I slided away on my jacket, which was lying on the floor.
After that, I could not stand anymore, because my knee hurt very badly.
After a check with the doctor and some X-rays later, it said there was a crack in my bone.
So they put a cast on my leg.
Try to pick up my life from the perspective of a wheelchair.
It took me a while to deal with this view.

Yesterday I thought I try to pick up some doodling.
plenty of time and no inspiration.
The squirrels are having a great time in my neighbors walnut tree.
I wondered what it would look like when they are having a timeout.
