A little #wip
Finally getting around to doing my fuchsia flowers
Absolutely adore the rich red and purple of this beautiful under appreciated flower. I was luckly enough to find the perfect coloured wool on my last trip to @kerrywoollenmills .
Having lots of fun with this one
I turned 50 and went on a big adventure. I took 6 weeks off everything and first stop was beautiful Ireland with my sister Kris and friend Russell . I was completely knackered , having worked hard in all areas of life , self and family. We drove around beautiful wild , green Ireland and it was like nature pulled me back to myself . I swam at Inch Beach Dingle , we rode bikes around Slea Head and climbed Diamond Hill in the stunning Connemara. We heard music in Galway and took the ferry to Inis Mor. I swam in the Irish Sea at Summer Solstice with my friend Chiara and her daughter Luca. We sang Tina Turner at the top of our lungs as we drove through the Mourne Mountains to Dublin. My journey beginning in Ireland , was the perfect backdrop for turning 50 and my own transitioning time.A celebration of all that is deeply natural and grounding with a touch of the wild spirit! #fitnesstrainer#travellingatfifty#wildireland#irishnature#backtonature#backtoself#wildandfreeatfifty
After I took this photo I put down my camera and just watched the bird. She had a very particular routine. She would leave her nest (which was located in a place where it was impossible for me to photograph without disturbing her) and fly to a patch of nettles by the shed.
After a minute or so rummaging through the nettles she’d emerge with a snail.
She would then fly across the yard to a piece of scrap iron. She had obviously worked out that this made a better anvil than stone to break open the shell.
Once she had the shell removed she would fly back to the nest full of hungry chicks, and then immediately begin the process all over again.
I hope her chicks liked snails. •
