I have never taken much interest in doves, but have always liked them. I read this morning(wikipedia) that there are around 320 species of them around the world. Some with amazing colours. Mine here in the garden are just the common type.. they like to be on the ground..and peck away.
Louisa May Alcott.-
Graceful games and friendly meetings,
Do I daily watch and see,
For these happy little neighbours
Always seem at peace to be
On my window ledge, to lure them,
Crumbs of bread I often strew,
and ,behind the curain hiding
watch them flutter to and fro.
How gracefully Lousa writes about the doves.. taken from her poem " MY DOVES"
Life here at Rose Cottage is delightful during these long hot summer days. I am enjoying being able to sit ouside on the patio, planning my little agenda for the next event.
Today I will be painting again , and later making a trip to the potter, in one of our nearby villages. I have finally found someone who will fire my bisquet plates and tea pots.
Wishing you all a wonderful week. Full of laughter and sunshine.
