A walk in the countryside...............

Just a short blog and some pictures to share from around our village. Went for a walk taking some old bread for the ducks, the first pond was quiet with not a feathered creature in sight. Further down the road found a whole tribe who were very anxious to get a share. I know that bread is bad for ducks and particularly young birds but there was such a small amount and not much to go around and I think they appreciated it. We kept ducks when I was a child and they ate all sorts of disgusting stuff and did not seem to suffer much harm.
The village Church of St Mary Magdalene which dates from the twelfth century. Not a grand building but quite pretty with an old churchyard
The squirrels have been absent from the garden for several days, not sure if they are being fed elsewhere as our house seems to be the last call on their daily rounds. Grand Central Bird Feeding Station is extremely well supported with an amazing variety of birds, wonderful to sit and watch when I am busy stitching.
On that note I should get back to work as I don't seem to be completing anything and totally lacking in inspiration. Perhaps this quote might be a good idea.
