Moody - Me?

You know I'm one for these
moody sunset images
don't you?


This is not just any old sunset view though!

It's the most beautiful sunset view ever?
 The beginning of our very own pond,
not only will it be a haven
for wildlife,
but a saver of domestic animals  too!
Foxes
I mean us.
This pond will be an overflow area 
for when our stream floods and hopefully
it will fill this bowl and not our home!

Actually it is quite exciting,
I dare not think about it too much,
it's huge, takes almost all of our field.
The National Trust are paying for it as part of a
larger flood defense project, but the pond is
situated on our property, we would have
never been able to afford anything like this.
The possibilities are endless, we
could float a boat on it!

I grew up on a piece of property in upstate New York with a pond on it - what stellar memories I have of my childhood there! It is huge...I'm excited for you!

Tell you what Sue... it's about time, isn't it? 12 years? OMG.
I'm wondering if you could ask the EA to add some fish to it and that might make your property even more attractive! They fund stuff like that - so if the concept appeals to you, feel free to contact me and I'll get you contacts!

Wow...how wonderful! to have a pond on your property. Besides the help with flooding the wildlife that will come should make for many many years of beautiful images and memories!

my darling....
i am an ocean girl. i grew up next to the sea and all my moves took me up the coast to wilder views in northern california.

family matters set in motion my land locked move to the mountains of prescott, az. the two ponds right outside our doors and favorite windows are my solace. now i will think of you on the cusp of such beauty as i drink in the peace of light falling on the face of ponds.


i am so happy for you and the foxes!

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
