Threads of Thought on creating with cloth and stitch
What a fantastic, fantastic story. Does he come back every year? Harry is hansome indeed.
Last year he became a frequent visitor and we're thrilled to have him back. We worry that the rusty pups scare away a lot of bird folk.
A heron flew over my car on the way to work this morning. They are magnificent.
Wonder what that heron was trying to tell you.
Welcome back, Harry!! They are truly magnificent, aren't they .
They make me think of butlers!
He is quite a handsome fellow.... glad he's back, always good to find the regulars back after their long journeys to who knows where! Here, I await the return of all the wee warblers. It will be a little while yet, but I look forward to it - and the songs of the Thrushes, oh, that is such an exquisite song to awake to in the morning.
Oh, that springtime dawn chorus is glorious isn't it.
How lucky to have a heron as a neighbour! I can't recall how I ended up here in your blog, but I fell in love with your work immediately. Needle magick!
Hi Satu...Glad you're enjoying it! I see you are a knitter of amazing things.
wow. he's beautiful. blue and gray...love it.
Have you been watching the heron web cam at Cornell University?
Love his name :) And his story too!
I wish I knew his story during the winter months. Wonder where he goes.
They are beautiful and majestic creatures - lucky you to have him in your life!! Thanks for sharing.
Mimi...surely you get them in Manitouwadge. Is that anywhere near Manitoulin island?
Oh PennyYour postings are such a moment of calm and serenity for me each day. Harry is a happy looking fellow.
Thanks Krissy. One of my favourite names btw because one of my boys used to have a lovely girlfriend by that name.
Welcome back to Handsome Harry. Thank you for your previous posting (I'm sort of behind here) - it was my pleasure to send it your way. Hugs!
Your gift is being shown to all and sundry and much admired!
What a splendid fellow! We have just welcomed back a pair (I believe they are the same) of tawny frogmouths which have taken up lodging during the day on top of a spotlight outside my bedroom window, with the other perched on the downpipe covering, just under the eaves. The house is two floors at the back so they are well out of the way and if they feel vulnerable they lift their heads and pretend to be branches. Google them - they are related to owls, but not owls, and can give you quite a fright at eye level.
Oh, Robyn, I just googled those tawny frogmouths....they are adorable and I would have mistaken them for an owl. I'm smiling as I try to imagine them trying to look like twigs or branches.
And he is indeed, a most handsome creature! A spectacular sight for you.
I always think he should be holding a silver tray with delicate glasses of sherry on it!
Yay indeed though he is probably regretting his return because as I write my replies here, the pond has frozen over again.
Is he friends with the RPs? Happy weekend! -sus
Ha! That would be a tale to tell! But I'm afraid the RP's scare most sensible visitors away.
Thank you for taking the time to comment, your thoughts are most welcome.
