A family of great tits lives in the birdhouse,
mother and father are immensely busy feeding the little ones.
The young birds make a lot of noise, i wonder how many there are...

Drawing challenge / Earthly
Being quite a dreamer, often head in the clouds,
i got no problem relating to dear
Every time working in my garden, touching that soil,
i feel very 'earthly', i recognize the connection with those
time layers build out of dust.
It has a strange but calming effect on me knowing that all
of us will become part of that dust in the end, all of us
Please take a look at
Patrice's wonderful blog
for more earthly pleasures created by this week's participants.
And have happy weekend X

Along the roadside in my neighbourhood
Today running errands, i took my camera with me.
I shot some photos(from the car) along the way , lots of beautiful old buildings
in the neighbourhood and blossoming fruit trees.
Dramatic April skies, sun and rain accompanied me.

Drawing challenge / A pair of...
A pair of....; connected, one incomplete without the other,
intended to stay together, 2 = optimal function,°°°°°
wondering about that one shoe left by the roadside
frustrated at not finding the other glove on a cold winterday
a mother who donates one of her kidneys to her son
having only one eye is natural for a cyclop
what does an angel do when he loses a wing?
.....and i read somewhere goats can die of loneliness
dear Helen of
objects of whimsy
made me pondering °°°° about
an intriguing theme, please take a look at her lovely blog for more pairs
this is the image i had to paint and i had to convince myself
not to use blue this time (pretty difficult for me:)
wishing you all a pair of happy weekend days

Drawing challenge/ i am pisces
Pisces (20 february-20 march)
one, often horrified by the brutality , indifference and injustice,
trying to escape to a place where he can be alone
'till he is strong enough to face reality again
there is a kind of danger to get lost in dreams or fantasy worlds
the other, able to enjoy and absorb the beauty, pleasures and benefits of live,
and to reflect them,
very rich imagination
pisces, adopting the color of their environment
not to hide or because the lack of personality
but they empathise very easily and deeply
and swim from world to world to experience and learn
because of this they are very flexible and tolerant
but they drop out forever when pushed to extreme limits for to long,
or a goldfish transforms into a shark
came up with a theme that made us reflect and think about ourselves,
do we relate to the characteristics of our zodiac sign?
have a look at different personalities and how they see their sign
Jumping in and out of the water i wish you a lovely weekend!

From my upstairs windows i can see the neighbours clothesline,
through all seasons everlasting waving and beautiful.
I listened to a scientific program on the brains.
