How clever birds are, to create something as beautiful and sustainable as this nest, found blown from its tree after a violent autumn storm. It makes me wonder who came up with the expression “bird brain”?
Speaking of birds, I want to share with you one of my favourite owls. He was(I think he looks like a he), a gift brought back from Italy by my parents. He seemed the perfect size to snuggle into this cosy nest.
He’s tiny enough to sit in the palm of my hand and is hollow with no base, perhaps he is a thimble? Far too beautiful to stick needles into though, I’d rather prick my finger.
