Sunday Scenes

I may be a bit hit and miss with blogs while Joe is in hospital but I promise to visit you all as soon as I can. Fortunately I had a couple of scheduled posts for weekend viewing, after that it's anybody's guess! 

The travelling to and from hospital is very tiring, consequently when I get home all I want to do is collapse on a chair or bed. Hey, listen to me moaning, and I'm the fit one in the family.


Scenes today show the Heron, taken at the local wildlife park.

Plantsbrook Wildlife Park covers almost 27 acres of natural space. It is situated in a suburban housing area with industrial estates and parkland nearby. The reserve has a number of pools, surrounded by woodland, wetlands and a wildflower meadow and is a real oasis for wildlife, all accessible by well prepared paths and boardwalks. 
We are very fortunate to have this facility on our doorstep.


  1. Thinking of you and himself.

    Lovely photos-- I find the birds somehow hard to photograph--maybe it's their contrasting colours. Not sure....maybe it's the photographer? LOL

    Take care of you, ma'am...(I'll keep repeating it so you don't forget!)

  2. I must be behind in my blogging - I didn't know Joe was in Hospital. How he is? I hope everything's okay. Nice series of Heron shots!

  3. very cool pictures....we used to see heron quite a bit when we lived in florida...when we see them up here it is really special...

  4. We have Wildcat Glades Conservation and Audubon Center, in our area. It is a lovely spot to walk through.

  5. Beeeeautiful captures of the Heron, Valerie! And I especially love the last one and its reflection in the water. VERY nice!

    And don't you worry about visiting blogs, dear lady, take all the time you need to take care of Joe and you.

    Have a lovely Sunday!


  6. I wish Joe a speedy recovery. And you take care of YOURSELF, too!

    Beautiful pics!

  7. I am sorry to hear about Joe. I am behind in reading blogs. Take care. Bless you both.

    Your photos are fantastic.

  8. If you need anything from me, please drop me a line! Here's hoping for the best, and keeping an eye out for your latest posts. :-)

  9. Joe and I really appreciate the lovely comments from our blogging friends. Future prognosis is not good but we are going to try and maintain as normal a lifestyle as possible and I shall be back blogging quite soon. I love you all.
