Now my health is getting better, I am able to do something I couldn't do for a long time and love so much: walking. It's even more fun to combine it with another hobby: photography. So last weekend we went walking in the gardens and woods of an estate nearby. It's owned by a nature-institution, so no styled gardens, but much attention to make nature feel a home, meaning great biodiversity. It's funny how the noise of birds everywhere feels as peaceful silence!
I love making macro-photo's for the surrealistic beauty of the small world.
This little fellow surely survived the unusual harsh winter, some of the nutshells were fresh, not yet coloured by the elements:
Good for him, because our spring is late, wet and cold. Not much food to find yet. It's a difficult time for nature, especially for the birds with chickies. But I leave that subject for a next time.
I used to put all my creativity into miniatures (see the blackcatcottage blog), but somehow it doesn't interest me as much as before. Now I do all kind of things: scrapping, card making, taking photographs, drawing, sculpting (clay and wood), making jewellery, ... And again I started blogging about it (Woodland Ways blog). I love fairytales and nature, and that will show in my work. (Photography on this blog is copyright protected!
