It has been a week of mixed weather, hot sticky days and then on Thursday a heavy thunderstorm with thunder and lightning. We have had really heavy rain showers and a strong breeze so it explains how the leaves and seeds could have ended up on the shore.
We heard a real squabble going on in the sky above us as a black headed gull chased a Heron, as they both shouted back at each other. The swifts and swallows were skimming the water and as usual and the ducks were swimming near to where they always congregate. We could see the railway workers getting ready for another weekend on our bridge. As we walked back through the long grass I picked two pieces of the coloured stems, which are making the whole shore appear as a red drift. I don't ever think I have seen this before. The evening sky was mostly hidden by the clouds, but as the sun set, thin bands of red peeped through. The huge billowing white clouds sank lower into the gaps between the hills. The clouds dominated the sky, no stars tonight but the sound of the railway men and their bright lights on the line as they work through the night to finish our bridge.
My page contains some of my finds from yesterday. I used acrylic inks and a fine paintbrush.
I set the task of choosing the giveaway with my husband, he put all 21 names on a ticket, put the names in a hat, and with eyes closed chose .........Michelle Palmer. She will get the little painting of the two feathers. Thank you for all the comments and kind wishes, I am feeling better.
Hope you like the page and seeing the real objects. Millyx
