Lunch with a Blackbird

A warm day meant the sliding door was open.  Near this door  is our dining table.  Just outside this door is a collection of potted plants and a plastic bowl full of water for the birds to drink from.

This blackbird is often in this area of the garden IMG_0054and as I was eating my lunch, he appeared to drink from the bowl.   Fortunately I had my camera right next to me.

Chinese New Year and a planter bowl of red impatiens

It is Chinese New Year today according to my calendar and red is a colour strongly associated with this event.

Red was also one of the theme colours in our recent family wedding and a colour I love and wear a lot of.

So here is a planter bowl of red impatiens that sits near my sunny doorway and cheers me on each day.
