Bits and Bobs!

Today's images are a mixture of topics! They are pictures that l feel l would like people to see but maybe they didn't fi that days theme for the blog! The image below, l was lucky to take while Tony and l were walking down Wildcroft Road. It is our resident kestrel ( l think it is a kestrel!). He or she is a beautiful bird to honoured to see it every day or so.

Often when we go up to see our son and daughter-in-law in Rutland, we stop in a  service stations on the A1(M). When we had parked and got out of the car, we were immediatly ponced on ducks..lots of them. Ducks at a service station....not a usual site l have to admit. They were in fantastic condition and l think they had decided that this was the place to find easy food!!

The next image is one that makes me smile. It is my husband and son, talking about Andrew's first veg plot!!! Very grown up. It was lovely to hear them getting excited about what to plant and where to plant it. Later on, they went to a Garden Centre, where they were so involved in the plants ect, they forgot l was at home..and need the sandwiches they were going to bring home with them for lunch!Ha.
When l look into this flower, it is like looking into a secret world and you never knew what you might see in those closed, protective petals.
I think this is one of the few images l have taken that shows how people/children think a spider's web should look like. There are two versions here.
These flower heads are so tightly packed and remind me on the layers of an onion. l am NOT fond of the colour pink but in this case l rather like it. Sutle but not over powering.
I am always on the look out for unusual or really cool shadow images, l think this counts as cool! Reminds me of swallows sitting on power lines waiting to leave.
If you are a follower of my blog, you will know that l love cranes and scaffolding..why?..l have no idea! I think this image is a beautiful one and has everything l love about cranes and scaffolding in it
This last image is one l love because of the colour of this cats eyes!
