Clouds were threatening on our walk this morning, so a shorter one than usual, but I love the diversity of plants and architecture in this place, not to mention a wonderful children’s playground that we often pass.

flowers, old bricks
and the old woman’s shoe
so much to see


Our custard apple tree has been laden this year, and the birds love them.  I even spotted a mother blackbird feeding her offspring with them.  Now that young blackbird is foraging for his or her own.  Just to make it easier for the birds I will often cut the ripe apples in half, and I have been trying to get some photographs of the blackbirds feeding for some time, but the minute they see the camera it’s all over!  These photos were taken with my camera on full zoom and shaking hands…
