She has made a nest in our honeysuckle right by our front door. Our lives are becoming dominated by our wish not to disturb her as she lays her pretty blue eggs, of which there are three ... so far. So is a female blackbird 'une Merle Noire' and do French blackbirds eat their escargots with garlic butter?
I have not been able to make cards for a while, life has it's tests and trials but when I do get a chance to play, I promise I will share at least one of my ink splats! Our garden is coming along nicely, well, the weeds and grass are growing the fastest but there are promises bursting throughout.
On a final say about God's wonderful creation, two of our over-wintered swallowtail butterflies hatched a couple of weeks ago! Seeing these amazing creatures form into a chrysalis and then gently break out as a butterfly; watching them pump up their wings, dry them off and zip up their proboscis then fly away is still breath taking, no matter how often I see it.
We have a long weekend here in France and my friend is visiting from England on Monday! I have taken Thursday off and we are going to have a girls day out .. YAY!
Enjoy your weekend, whatever you are doing!
