Plant life will arise anywhere! I noticed this settling itself on the neighbours chimney today. A small seed somehow plants itself in a crevice and happily grows away knowing the owner not only cannot see it he will not dare climb up there to fix it.
Any building, town or city left to itself soon becomes overgrown with what we often refer to as 'weeds.' Yet they are plants of some sort to another even if we cannot find much use for them. The birds and bees and other beasties certainly make use of such as these and without them I suspect we would wither also. The variety of plant life in this world is astonishing when you stop for a moment to think about it. Those little blue flowers that I can never take a decent picture off, the crops that feed us, the trees that last hundreds of years and climb hundreds of feet into the sky are all a wonder, just grass in a variety of colours, sizes and shapes. A walk through a well stocked 'country garden,' the type not favoured b y the BBC these days, gives a splash of colour and fragrance we could never copy.
Just saying like....
The variety of bird life around us is also a wonder! For a start it is a wonder that every time you press the button the brute turns his head the other way! They do this for spite I tell thee! At least this one is calling his mate from a distance and not outside my door. I am having trouble with Starlings however. My little bird feeder is meant for wee birds like Tits and Goldfinch but recently Starlings have discovered how to land on it for the wee white Suet Pellets that I give them. This annoys me as the big birds hinder the wee ones and It's them I want. Starlings are excellent birds but come in flocks rather than in pairs and chase away other birds. I even saw a Wood Pigeon eyeing up the feeder considering how to get a handful from it.
Up above we have been enjoying blue skies and thick clouds. At least those who ventured outside. I remained indoors, working hard - for an hour - and wasting away otherwise. At least I did some work on the WW2 exhibition, feeble I know but it was a start, and I am amazed at how much the lass has managed when I was shirking work. The next thing is to search for downed aircraft, and there were a few, and bomb holes maybe.
Oh suddenly my brain hurts. I think I had better go and watch Forfar Athletic playing Alloa Athletic and let my mind cool down a bit. Life can be so trying sometimes...
