Me-now-here...

The very first morning I woke at my usual early hour and was surprised to find the birds didn't start singing till well after that - around 7am to be precise, when I heard the first warble.  I was fairly certain, too, that it was a robin, though it had been a quarter century since I had last heard its call.  Once I was sure the outside was lighter than then inside, I got the 'Nik' on the go...

It was a grey, foggy morning and around 4'C.

The dew was heavy, but not quite frozen...

Aitch had previously complained that there were no birds in her garden - or that they couldn't be photographed for my Wings On Wednesday meme...  Oh yeah???

These were taken in a hurry through the window - for certainly they were very flighty. This last one is particularly tantalising.  Hehheheh,,,, keep watching....

  1. I like the misty cold look but it must be different to Australia and India's heat.
    We are having a visitor coming out to see us in January from America she will notice the difference.

  2. My mom loves those kind of days but not me! That is a beautiful lily (I think). Don't know what kind of bird you are tantalizing me with though!

  3. Looks like Scotland to me. Home of my heart and of my ancient ancestors: MacKenzies from the Highlands and Frasers from the Lowlands, and Grandpa Davies whose ancestry was certainly Welsh but who considered himself Scottish because it playe fft'ba in Glasgow.

  4. I meant to say "he played"...
    very tired, just about to go to bed, up early in the morning to see my doctor about what all ails me.
    I'm sure there will be a blow-by-blow description.
    Luv (again, or still), K

  5. Yep, that looks like a December morning in Britain. :-) The weather seems to have been rather still for ages, with the occasional very windy interlude. Not much sun though. Sigh...

  6. This looks very like eastern Canada in September, but by December our robins are long gone!
