Little Nest

littlenest

Out walking for a couple of days I saw this upside down on the pavement, couldn’t work out what it was, looked like some demented piece of sowing, but when today I picked it up and turned it over, I realised it was a little nest, all intertwined with bits of coloured thread and twigs and leaves.  No shells on the ground, just this pretty object, made with such clever use of what was to hand – what was to beak, rather.

Odd Flower – Anyone Recognise This?

This strange plant suddenly appeared in the shrubbery. It comes straight out of the ground, long stem, no foliage at all, about three foot tall; and we don’t have a clue what it is. Can anyone enlighten us?
