Mrs sparrow...


Hey is there room for me in there?


Peeking over the edge :-)


The new factory for the wooden pallets see the last post on this here ...


as above...


I am glad that the cladding is dark so hopefully when all is finished it will not look as bad as I expected!


Rose no 2 but it looks like it will be gone by tomorrow!!



P.S.  For those interested, Part 5 of our holiday in South Africa and Botswana is now on my other blog.

    1. They love a splash around but I missed most of it as the camera was upstairs when I noticed them. Take care Linda. Diane

  2. Bathing birds are the absolutely cutest things!!!!!!!!! Wet, 'spiky' feathers, are sooo cute. ,-)))))

    This factory will make/produce wooden pallets, yes?

    1. The birds are very cute

      Yes it is a factory to make wooden pallets. Industrial buildings really look out of place here, but it at least is well out of the town. It looked like being a real eye sore but the dark cladding helps to tone it down a bit.

      Keep well Diane

    1. The birds are so cute but not always easy to photograph as they are very nervous. Hope you are well Diane

  10. Hi Diane. Lovely photos again. You have so many butterflies come to your garden. All the rain we have had seems to have caused the bugs and butterflies to have disappeared from my garden unfortunately. KIM

    1. I am not surprised Kim that all you insects have vanished. Your weather at present is not good for man, beast or insect. Hope it improves very soon and that your weekend is a little better. Take car and stay safe Diane

  11. Truly, industrial buildings do look out of place among the old architecture. Nice to still be seeing butterflies.

    1. I could not agree more but I guess they have to happen and it is out of town. The dark cladding certainly will help to tone them down. Diane
