I am always amazed by the natural world.
Last week in London I saw a small flock of bright green parakeets flying wild. At various times I saw a single one but up to nine at the same time. When it was one I thought maybe an escaped pet but nine escaped pets surely not.
However they got there its amazing that they survived and appear to be flourishing.
Do you think in the future there could be larger flocks and a larger population?
I hope so. Seeing them always made me smile and that’s a good thing.
I just wish I was quicker with a camera I could have shown how gorgeous they are. Unfortunately I’m not that quick or talented.
Ain’t nature wonderful.
For a while now I’ve been suffering with mental health issues. Things that haven’t happened for thirty year have come back. Meaning that I’ve locked myself away from the world.
Recently however having to attend eight funerals has forced a lot of driving covering a fair distance.
This has had a hidden benefit. Driving and paying attention to the natural world at the same time made me notice a large volume of white flowers around at the moment.
During the last journey it was dark and miserable. Raining real miserable day. I thought on the way to the service it was appropriate weather to hide the tears of the mourners. On the way home however seeing the mass of hawthorn blossom, a flower few folk pay attention to, was like huge lights in the darkness of grief.
Bring the thought that there has to be bright spots in our darkest times or we’d never know what the dark was.
So nature has shown me that I may be in a very dark place just now but I will find the light to end it.
Nature does heal when we least expect it!
Hawthorns have always been one of my favorite trees.
I visited my sister today on the way through glendevon then part Gleneagles I was driven insane by drivers idling along at less than 20 miles an hour. How do these folk get there driving licence?
Then after arriving at Cathy’s house the serenity and peaceful nature of the landscape chilled me out in minutes. Here are a few pics I took hope they have a calming effect on anyone that sees them.
I love stones etc and often collect them when I’m out and about. There where from the beach at Kirkaldy today.
As you can see I’m stranger than you thought.
This angered me so much. If you look close that a thermos in there. Why would you leave it there?
As you can see I spent some time here lol. Waiting for hours on the dealer sorting my car. I loved it really but ended up in such pain so sad.
Today I watched a documentary about the fight to save the rainforest in the amazon basin.
The presenter was Ross Kemp. It was informative but it got me thinking.
The essence of the programme was that they need to do more to prevent de-forestation. The Brazilians that is.
I do agree however. I life in Scotland and its not that long ago that most of Scotland was covered in pine/birch woodland. These days we have very little left. There is plenty commercial forest but very little natural woodland.
So I ask the question, what right do we have to lecture the Brazilians about saving the Amazonian rainforest when we can’t preserve our own?
Surely as I mentioned the other day. We should start all conservation in our locality. We should first look at what we can do in our own country before we lecture anyone else!
