Away for a Few Days

orange tip butterfly at Gorgie City Farm (click on photo to enlarge it)

We're going over the sea (though nowadays there's a bridge) to Skye, back soon....

Love the new banner. Have a grand time. Do visit the fairy glen! You will post some photos on your return, I hope?

Dear Juliet, two things:
1) In the link, a RSPA one I think, with all the birds and their voices I found in your blog I couldn't find the woodpecker, why? It's a very dear bird to me with its marvellous rat-ta-ta, which is not its voice really, but it's a unique sound.

2) I have rewritten the link to Gloom Cupboard, now it works.

All my best, Davide

The orange tip I saw in my garden, fluttered through without stopping! I enlarged your photo, such a lovely butterfly. I hope you have a great break away in Skye. x

Dear Juliet, thank you for giving precise information on the woodpecker on RSPCB, the point is: I've always heard a woodpecker but I've never seen one.
Best wishes, Davide

Why to Skye? It sounds like a quiet place with quie a history.

Hope you'll have a great time. Skye is supposed to be beautiful, but unfortunately I've never been there. Post some photos please! Ciao. Antonella

Hi Juliet,
I just stopped by to say hello. Lovely photo . . . . I must say I admire that you're a photographer as well as a poet/writer.
-- warmly!

Hannah said...

I love the Western Isles, but I've not been to Skye. I always loved the sound of it, with the Cuillins and all...

Have fun!
