Something to brighten up the dull days.FOTD 19th October 2021: Lilies
That looks interesting, I must get a little closer and have a sniff.
It is sending out signals to my brain. Yes I have a bird brain.
Not only does it smell good, but tastes good. Better than those crumbs of stale bread that the humans throw at us. At last success, food for a pigeon feast. Must stay around here, looks like there are more from where that came.
And it is all mine.RDP Tuesday: Neuron
Look what I got this morning – a red sunrise, not quite one of the best, but for a few minutes it was there.
When I looked a little later, this was all that was left. I suppose you cannot have everything. Yesterday was another great Autumn day so I saddled my wheelchair and took it for a drive down to the river. I was careful as I had already used it the day before on a longer journey, but it took me along the river bank.
And there was plenty to shoot with the camera. Autumn at its best with the trees and their reflection in the river. I almost had the path to myself, just a few people taking a stroll. Even the clouds played their part in the scenery.
And this must be the most photographed swan on the river at the moment. It was completely alone. It was quite an angry swan as it kept hissing and I did not know that they hissed. I was glad it stayed in the water. From the colour of its feathers it was one of the swans from this year in Spring. There was an elderly couple also taking photos of the swan.
I must have taken at least 20 photos of it. I really enjoyed my wheelie. It has been a long while since I rolled along the river.
This shot was from the side of the river in the part where some trees are growing. They are also feeling the Autumn atmosphere.
I also noticed a bird flying into a tree. I was not sure so took a few photos and I was surprised to see I actually managed to catch it on the camera, although not so perfect. I believe it to be a magpie from the colours, but am not sure.
My plumber called again yesterday morning and replaced the leaking parts below my bathroom sink. It is now perfect and no more suspicious pools of water on the floor. We have now been living here for 25 years and never had to replace anything in the bathroom, except for a couple of sinks where we had cracked them (the insurance paid) so I cannot complain and we have a very good plumber. I think living in a small part of the world, everyone sort of becomes family colleagues.
This afternoon I will take my scooter to town as I have a few items to get. Mr. Swiss cigarettes and I notice a couple of interesting offers in the grocery store in their meat department.
My cleaning lady has come and gone already and I also had a delivery from my online store, so I now comfortable for the week. I hope you all have a good day wherever you are. I leave you with another glimpse of our river in its Autumn clothes.
