If you look carefully in the photo below you can see the long tailed tits' nest, a lovely hanging basket woven from lichen, spiders webs and other such delicate materials. We didn't see the birds yesterday, hopefully they're hiding in the nest, sitting on eggs.
while some are slightly further out.
and the orange ladybirds (Halyzia 16-guttata) are still hibernating in the iron railings!
Today's poem for NaPoWriMo is over on my Shapeshifting Green blog.
And a reminder that the pdf of an updated version of my chapbook Bougainvillea Dancing is now available to buy in the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop. 10% of proceeds from the sale of this book go to VSO for their work in Malawi and other parts of southern Africa.
I've also set up a photography section of the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop where you can buy downloads of some of my nature photos. The first photo available is the larch flowers.
As ever, red text contains hyperlinks that take you to other webpages where you can find out more.
