A little bit of wit for a Thursday morning. The image was captured from my conservatory whilst enjoying some late afternoon early evening light. The flock of crows against the warming skies was an opportunity to good to miss.

Thank you all for your most welcoming comments and wonderful messages regarding my new home. Se are very happy here and hope to spend many a happy year enjoying what the village of Lower Stoke and the Peninsula has got to offer.

Regards to you all

Nathan and Julie GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Hope you remained under cover and didn't get spatteres!

Reminds me of a little ditty:

Birds fly high in the evening sky,
Farmer walks below,
Angry farmer wipes his eye,
Thanking God that cows don't fly.
