Day 160

The weather is sunny and warm, the birds are singing and it is so peaceful to hear a soft rustling of leaves from this "ratelpopulier" (populus tremula), like they gentle whisper in my ear.


let it be

Day 151

Done! I only have to wash and block it. And... I have to try it on. Which I don't dare at this moment. 
Afraid it won't fit or that it doesn't suit me. Ai ai..

When I was 19 years I came to 'the big city' to study. I lived in this house. The two windows with the half curtains was my room. I lived there with 6 other girls. Fun!

Day 138

In this 'bush' against the garage have a Winterkoninkje (Eurasian Wren) couple their nest.

Actually, the nest is build about a month ago. A wren came on and on with leaves.  And then it was quiet.......
I searched on the internet for more information and I found out that the male build about 6 nests in his territory. Then he is going to search for a wife.
He shows her all the nests he made and she makes a choice.  
His wife makes inside the nest comfortable with feathers etc, 
That's a sweet story hè :-) 
But then.....
as soon as his wife is on her eggs the male wren is going to find another wife. And he shows that wife the other 5 nests he builded and so on. Sometimes a male Wren has 4 wives on a nest in his territory!

I think  I have one of them in my garden in this 'bush' 

The male wren makes a pass at a female with his most beautiful singing.
and believe me, he is doing that with whole his heart. I never realized that this little tiny bird could sing that loud!  (click and listen)

He wakes me up early in the morning  (5.10 am)
And he is singing the whole day long. 

Today I tried to take a nice picture of him.. 
That isn't easy because he is very fast.
(looks like a mouse moving but then in the air)

It looks like he is 'screaming'

First soft and gentle
and then exposed with his whole body.

Finally her is a picture with his beak closed and his tail proud in the air.

This little tiny bird amazed me :-)

Day 136

Day 135

Today I wanted to take a picture of these darlings from above. 
Most of the time I take pictures of them on the same hight. So I thought to do something else but.....

 it is so hard to resist their funny mouths. Look at ' Zusje' she is the middle one and 11 months old. Her  little mouth is so cute. 

On the left is Moppie she is 6 years old. On the right is Bobo, 3 years.

And here they are again with the owner, our DD2. 
She is a guinea pig lover for a bit more than 10 years. Since then we own guinea pigs. 
When our daughter is coming home they are whistling to her. They stop as soon as she pick them up to cuddle them. Then they give her little sounds to tell her that they feel comfortable.
She takes care for them with whole her heart, day by day. 
And the guinea pigs are so good for her, 
our daughter, who has autism and some other 'special needs'
