It’s surprising what you see when you are quietly working. I was in my studio, dyeing as it happens, when I looked out through the window.
Apologies for the piece of paper that’s in the bottom right, but I needed to be quick. If you have been following my other blog you will already have seen this wood pigeon, it’s Hilda! She and Howard often visit for a drink, but this is the first time I’ve been able to actually catch one of them ‘in the act’, as it were.
I watched for several minutes. Neither moved, then the cat saw me, turned and sloped off. I tried to creep outside and take a better photograph of Hilda, however, the door creaked and she was off in a flurry of wings. Howard came a while later, but I was up to my elbows in dye by that time.
I haven’t forgotten my cryptic post of yesterday, I’m hoping to have more information soon and I promise I’ll pass it on when I do.
