This morning I woke to the sound of wind and it was the right type of day to do something pretty cool and make a time lapse video of some clouds. So on the way to work I made this:
Despite this beauty the power of the wind has been in the news a lot these last few days and my thoughts go out to those who have been affected by the storms in the Caribbean.
There was a little bird in our garden, just about able to fly, but not properly. cute little things baby birds are but despite our need to look after them leaving them be is the best thing, nature has to sort itself out without our interference.
I hope he was ok, I like to think he is.
My dog is very hairy and often needs a trim which is done outside. I’ve noticed how some Great Tits have Ben using this fur for their nest materials.
I took these pics of them collecting the fur. The way they reuse stuff puts us to shame.
Planet Earth is changing all the time. Many changes are caused by us, humans and our ever growing activity.
The link below is a post from NASA showing how some parts of the Earth have changed over the years. These changes aren’t small either. It makes interesting and a bit scary reading.

I love finding new places, near work there is a quiet little place where there are lots of young trees and a few benches. This is going to be a great place to get some peace in a lunch break.
Yes… my shoes are a bit smarter than my usual trainers.
It will be nice to see this place in Spring, I could spend a long time here enjoying the peace and quiet.
Last night I found a frog while cutting the grass. He’s a lucky little blighter as I was about to chop him up when he hopped away. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to snap some pics of him. I like frog, I’m fascinated by them, they’re a fun and harmless creatures.
This one got to see another dawn and will live it’s life never realising it’s immortalisation on my blog. May he have a long life before he croaks (groan I know)!
I loved my lunchtime walk, it was warm with a little rain, the drip drop of the rain on the lake and the ducks loving the water.
What power you command Earth, your smallest ripple could crush us in an instant. What seems to us as immeasurable force is merely a touch for you.
How foolish are we to think we can harness your rage. We live here because you allow us, not because our feeble skills and creations make us safe.
We are at your mercy, this we must never forget.
