A slight change of pace

Yes, being a little fed up with winter I decided to but a new 'pet'. Many years ago I cultivated many African violets under lights. I even won a few ribbons - though never best in show. Still, though very short on space in the Retreat, I thought it was time to bring in some new color (or if you prefer, colour) grin. Except for the dim glow from the computer screen, and the surveillance camera screen, it's dark in here. So I have this little plant under a single CFL. Lets see how well this grows over the next few months. ATB!

The Outlook

One of these days I will get a photo of these big birds at the feeder. They are very wary. This one is watching me while his pals fly off in the distance.

One Short Leap..

But wait a moment - Big Nappy is up there - dare I jump in? Better not just yet.
