Foxy, foxy

On Friday, I received post from the lovely and talented Alison, aka fatdormouse who blogs over at View from the Teapot, so today I would like to introduce you to Mr Fox.

Mr Fox 1

I am told he is a piece of Zantangle Inspired Artwork. If you don’t know what that means, Alison has a great guide to Zantangles and zentangling right here on her blog.

I went and bought a frame yesterday, so here is Mr Fox all established in his new home:

Mr Fox2

Apologies for the weird shadows and things – he’s hanging in the corridor, which has no natural light (well, a tiny bit from other windows if we leave all the doors open) and that’s just the way the ceiling lamps shine on him. We thought he would fit nicely there because we already have another animal picture in the corridor (drawn by my dad’s partner’s dad – how complicated is that!) and also he’s now one of the first things anyone who comes in the door to our flat will see.

Thank you very much Alison. He is wonderful and I love him!

March 2017 photos

I think April may end up being the fastest month of this year so far. Somehow it is more than half over already. How did that happen?! I’d better post my March photos before I blink and realise it’s June or something!

For those who don’t know, this is just a random post where I throw in all the photos I took during a particular month that don’t fit in anywhere else. Nothing particularly exciting, just an excuse to show off my photography “skills”.

Jan had a birthday, so I made cupcakes.

Once again, most of my photos were of birds.

Crows are very cool (although less so when they’re cawing on outside the window at 5 a.m.!).

I can never seem to resist taking photos of the birds on the balcony. *Sigh*. For those who have asked what a “lard ball” is, that would be the thing the birds below are standing on/eating. Also, notice the leaves on the tree (which was still pretty much bare in my February photos). It’s almost fully green now 🙂

I heard this next bird before I saw it:

Sadly the blackbird was not outside our window, but in a garden I walked past on my way home from town.

Our friend came to visit and we went to the animal park. I didn’t actually take many photos there, but I did grab one of the little red fox, all curled up in a ball. So cute… but so smelly!

And that’s about it for March. Cupcakes and animals seem to have been the order of the month.

I have to say, the final photo is my favourite in this collection! How about you… any favourites here?
