A Rook in my Garden: The Nest Builder

A Rook in my Garden: The Nest Builder

A simple short video of a Rook – or it could be a Crow – that decided to build it’s nest in our garden. It got hold of a cushion from one of our garden chairs … and used the natural fibre stuffing! Nowadays, we keep our garden cushions safely indoors when we are not using them. I hope you enjoy this. Love, Katy.

Squirrels and Pigeons in our garden

A short, happy, video of squirrels and pigeons enjoying tasty treats in our garden. Hubby and I love watching the antics of the birds and animals that often visit. It is wonderful how they get along – as long as there’s enough food for all of them. Sometimes, the squirrels stand outside our patio doors, as if waiting to come in.

Can I Stay Here?

Can I Stay Here?

A few months ago, the world changed. Taking a break from my writing, I captured a precious moment outside my window. With all the global fear and confusion, I felt a longing to stay in that moment. Here is that moment, and the poem that it inspired.

The Birds Outside My Window

Can I Stay Here?

Time stood still; I was held in a bubble of joy.
Through a window, I watched our feathered friends survive.
All thought slipped away.
I became part of this simple act of nature – being.
For a few priceless moments, the world changed.
I lived with flowers, seeds,  water, birds – life.
Precious moments, no threat, no fear. 
In those exquisite moments, I experienced pure being,
no threat,  no fear, no pandemic.
 
Can  I stay here? Can I just Be?
