Leaving the nest

We all flew away 

for a week in Wales

but we're safely back in the nest for now.

There was no going back for this barely fledged House Martin,

from a very late brood.

The parallel is too pathetic.
I must get a grip.

Let's look at a picture of a funny old sheep instead.
I wonder. 
Is it too late for me to get my ears pierced?


  1. A week in Wales sounds wonderful, I loved the time I spent there years ago. I love all of your photos - and how your mind works.

  2. Not too late to have your ears pierced and definitely less permanent than a tattoo! :O) Re the bird "thing", 'tis all part of "the cycle"...........

  3. Pull yourself together, Woman!
    (Lovely to see you back)

  4. PS: it's never too late for anything!

  5. It's never too late to get your ears (or nose) pierced. And you're probably braver now than you were at 16....

  6. Mine were pierced at a rather late age ... once was enough. I'm glad I did though.

  7. My grandmother had her ears pierced when she was 70 (which seemed rather old at the time, but now...). Never too late!
