Booty, peace and poppy

Gordon the blackbird with booty after hard work searching among the lettuces. He pauses for a moment. Can  he fit in more  chopped worm and slug into his beak.

Dearest is discharged from the hospital , having made good progress after her operation. She takes up residence at Burrswood where she can recover in peace. Financed by a well-wisher, she has a room looking over lawns, woods and distant hills. She sits by the French window and looks out on the sunlit garden. Silence. Blessed silence. The best thing I have seen for at least a week.

In the garden a pale pink, almost white poppy begins to unfold it petals which look like crumpled tissue paper.
