Yesterday was the first time I saw rose-ringed parakeets around my home. I’ve seen them in various parts of south west London, but apparently the rising tree prices have forced them to the somewhat cheaper south east. They are very pretty but do make an awful racket and mess. I hope they don’t force out the local tits, sparrows and finch populations though.
My little man did not quite believe me that there were deer in Greenwich Park, where we went for a visit. So we had to walk all over the park to find them, happily chasing gulls and feeding squirrels in the interim. A good way to tucker him out for his long drive home. And I’m back to work tomorrow.
Apologies, not the super variety, these are poor imitations of several of my drawing/illustration heroes. I often wonder how you get a ‘style’ or inspiration for a character. When I sit down to try to create my own, my mind goes blank. Sometimes I think I am only good at being a muse for others and my muse had abandoned me many, many moons ago.
