it has pictures on the front and the back, to remind me of what is important,Thinking Hat front, on a pouty person, hat showing sun, sea, flowers, flying fish and other paraphanelia Thinking Hat back, showing dolphins, big purple bow, start, sea, black glittery flower and more

it has several magical flying fish,Thinking Hat flying fish, gren and silver flying fish leaping out of the waves

These flowers were in the same garden as the crocuses.  I don’t know what they are called yet, but they were lovely.  unusual dead flower head pyramid shapedunusual dead flower head swayed to the right unusual dead flower head close up, umbrella shapedunusual dead flower head close, four petal flowers

They were about as tall as me, single stalks.  If anyone knows…

A study in crocus

I went to a quite lovely garden a few weeks ago.  It would have been more lovely but the pointless and depressing aviary, containing far too many birds in a very small space, ruined it for me.  I mean their lives are fairly comprehensively ruined, and so I felt guilty just walking away from them.  But my presence won’t help them.  I wonder what would.

Anyway, I did enjoy photographing the crocuses, of which there were many kinds. Here is my study:

shriveled dead crocuses, purple and orange, bright green leaves

two unusual shaped purple crocus, which looks slightly dry

somehow unusual

friendly

white and blue crocuses, with yellow middle, some dying, on sand

IWaaaa!!! Am ready and full up of ideas, and ready to burst with them.  Mostly because I am in the middle of making a THINKING HAT, which is increasing my joy and exuberance exponentialy (word of the moment).  But you can’t see a picture of it, no, not yet, not until it is finished.  Which will be TOMORROW!!!!!!!!

Until then, I have to assert that today I have discovered that magic is real and true and alive in physical form today on this planet.  Behold the FLYING FISH, my new favourite animal, second only to flying squirrells, maybe.

Yes, yes, yes, I have so much to SHARE!

Where am I?
