I was in the kitchen, faffing not writing, when the light through the hedge at the top of the garden caught my eye. Hurrah – a project! I dashed outside with my camera to capture the high definition catkins against the sunset, and caught this little bird as well – probably a dunnock; it’s hard to tell. But whatever it is, I like the tiny curve of sunlight against her breast.

Well caught. A beautiful image 🙂
Thank you, Janet 🙂
One can easily miss the bird
Indeed. Thought I’d better point it out 🙂
This is lovely Tish; so much said in simplicity.
I love the look of this)
Thank you, Beth.
Beautifully put, Ann-Christine.
I see a little bird that is sitting in the tree top, a pretty little bird that is sitting in the tree top… Not a clue what that song is? 🙂 🙂 Nice shot!
A sweet little refrain. Thanks, Jo 🙂
So easy to be distracted by such a peaceful view. Love the word “faffing” not heard it for ages and I do it quite a lot….
Your comment made me laugh, Pauline. Faffing is quite an enjoyable activity. 🙃
I like to think it’s rather like giving oneself a bit of a holiday, though sometimes suspect it could easily become a permanent pursuit.
Faffing seems to be my main pursuit if not gardening. I even faff a bit up at the allotment when I’ve (so to speak) lost of the plot of what I meant to do when I got there.
Super shots, Tish. Now that bird is captured on the internet for all time. 😁
What on earth if “faffing”? 🙂
Hello Brian. Happy New Year. With all your linguistic panache, I feel I should make you guess. Pottering with intent; wilful mucking about instead concentrating on a particular task; idling away the minutes and hours on Word Press… 😉
I got it. Faffing = Wilful pottering away on WP?
Take care my dear.
Sweet bird but even prettier are those delicate earrings 🙂
Such a serene, calming image Tish. Beautifully captured
Thanks, Tina. You’ve made me think we could all do with more serenity.
Oh lovely light, Tish! Oh, and I spend hours faffing…..
I think it might be an important part of being creative – though sometimes it’s hard to tell 🙂
Oh, I’m not so sure!
I know – it sounds like a good excuse. But faffing could also be a bit like composting 🙂
OK, mixing and maturing the ideas!
