Wordless Wednesday: Can’t talk right now

Sammy is somewhat wordless at the moment. I guess this is the squirrel equivalent of the British ‘Gobstopper’ or the American ‘Jawbreaker’.

Wordless Wednesday: The Dancer

“Listen to the trees as they sway in the wind. Their leaves are telling secrets. Their bark sings songs of olden days as it grows around the trunks. And their roots give names to all things. Their language has been lost. But not the gestures.” – Vera Nazarian (The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration)


Happy Wednesday to you all.




Wordless Wednesday: The Car Park Hustling Duck

Coming out of CVS Pharmacy yesterday, I was accosted by this stranger, who insisted on following me to my car.


He was wordless as he wagged his tail feathers at me and positioned himself so that I couldn’t get into the car without stepping over him. I was worried that if I opened the door, he might just hop in, or worse still give me a peck. I shooed him but to no avail. I gave him a gentle nudge with my foot, and he stubbornly stood his ground. I even considered scooting round to the passenger door and climbing across the centre console. You would have laughed to see me trying to lead him away from the car and then quickly walking back, hoping to escape from my overly persistent would-be friend. Luckily after a few minutes, another woman/victim appeared. She was eating a bag of potato chips and suddenly I was off the hook. As I drove away, I could see my feathered friend had transferred his affections and was wagging his tail feathers furiously at her. I couldn’t help but smile.

Hope you all have a lovely Wednesday.  P.S. I thought at first this was Turkey Vulture, but now I’m thinking it was actually a Muscovy Duck. Never seen one up close before.





Wordless from Wednesday

This morning, these cormorants reminded me that I really do need to get my ducks in a row, as moving day is getting closer, and the family, all five of them, arrive on Saturday at midnight.


Please excuse me if I’m wordless on your blogs, as well as on mine for a few days. I have to take a break until the coast is clear again. I’ll really miss you all, but hopefully I’ll resurface very soon. xx

Wordless Wednesday:Anyone for a Selfie?

Mr. A caused quite a bit of excitement and interest, but they did stop short of getting a selfie with him, although at one point, I could see that the bravest of these guys was sorely tempted. Happily, he resisted the temptation.
