From My Window

Inspire Me Thursday ask us this week to look out of our window for their art journalling prompt. The first photo here shows the beautiful old building across the road, it used to be until recently a day centre for older people but now has been converted to flats. It makes a nice contrast with the tenements surrounding it and the three cherry trees in front of it are gorgeous when they're in bloom. There's also a very convenient paper andpackaging recycling point there! My art journal page shows my favourite bird, the swift, which can be seen from our windows every day between May and August.

I found your ‘blog’ while browsing the web and I would like to introduce you to our project, dedicated to fighting climate change and poverty, called Tree-Nation. Via our website you ated to fighting climate change and poverty, called Tree-Nation. Via our website you can plant trees for yourself or offer them to someone else. The trees are being planted in a virtual map on our website and in our real plantation in Niger. Eventually our goal is to plant 8 million trees in Africa in the shape of a huge heart. Have a look at our website to see whether you like the project and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

Many thanks!

Glad you had the link for swifts. I wasn't sure if they were the same as swallows. We have swallows here. So graceful.
