I'm Nina, a photographer, film maker and forever wanderer.  Passionate about nature, the great outdoors and all of life's adventures.  This is the place where I keep all my 'field notes'


...and other stuff today - so far!

Normal service has resumed once more in the Tabiboo household and all nasty germs have been starved off and killed.

So with rain drops, drop drop dropping outside our window panes this morning little boo and I were left to our own devices.

Whilst I made (and eat) Bavarian Pumpernickel bread from the Artisan Healthy Bread in Five minutes a Day book, little boo reconnected with the house and toys she had missed for two whole sickly days.

Though I have to say even though the bread is delicious I think I got a bit carried away with our last jar of homemade strawberry jam - I just needed a taste of Summer this morning with all the greyness outside our windows today, but it would of tasted better with cheese.......maybe some soft goats cheese and chilli jam - or non chilli, chilli jam as I prefer!

Anyhow once the rain dried up (for all of five minutes!) it left some wonderful muddy puddles in our not so perfect garden.

So suited and booted little boo splish splashed and generally jumped around whilst I tried to capture raindrops hanging 'oh so' perfectly from branches, twinkly like tiny little lights and resting ever so gently and slightly precariously on leaves waiting to roll and splat with each tiny little breeze or movement.

And now the birds are out in force flitting from branch to branch knocking those delicate little raindrops to the ground as they spy the odd worm or two poking their heads out of the soggy ground - a feast indeed for hungry little blackbirds.

Enjoy the rest of your day and thank you again for all your uplifting comments - as Jus said 'at least it wasn't both ends' - you and me both Mrs Bun, you and me both!!'ll have to read yesterday's comment to understand.
