Both appeared today at Dusseldorf bus stops. Not a coincidence, I bet!

Welcome home…

Coming back from the holidays is also associated with nice feelings.

Such as seeing innocence and happiness personified – can I say that? – by Mimmino enjoying the late afternoon sun…while Micetta remains elusive expressing her utmost absolute cat-ness by reclaiming her right to privacy! They’ve been the masters of the home & balcony universe over the past weeks, and cohabitation with plants and flowers has been, I must admit, extremely civilized!

Mr Goldfinch

Today I received the most delightful visit: a goldfinch hosted a solo concert for me while I was having coffee…True, I miss my blackbirds and also the swallows zooming around (all gone back to Africa? already? no wonder, with last week’s cold weather)…but today I heard a different, quite sophisticated song and there he was, Mr Goldfinch! He came over our balcony, did a fast U-turn, went back to the neighbors opposite, and then headed towards the Rhine…

It is just the second time in my life I get to see them live…the first time was on a Summer early evening…I was leaving the office, I badged out and there they were, a dozen of them, chatting in the grass, just outside the HQ’s gate. They whirled away in a kaleidoskope of reds and yellows and beiges….

I just finished reading “Una burla riuscita” and all those mini-tales of sparrows and swallows are still whirling in my mind…frrr…frr….

Sunday afternoon

Frantic activity.

P1240003

I always wonder what they dream about…most probably blackbirds, butterflies and dragonflies…but as soon as the click! of the camera goes off, they wake up…
