Bean flowers, bathing blackbird, baby in tow

Scarlet bean flowers among runner beans.

A baby blackbird, while I am watching it, hops into a large dish, which doubles as a bird bath. It sits there for a while up to its breast in water, taking a drink from time to time, then plunges its head into the water with a splash. It hops out, consumes a worm, hops back into its bath, and repeats the head dunking process.

A man peddles hard on his bike up Mount Sion. Behind the bike and attached to it by two metal arms, is a baby-buggy. In the buggy sits a baby, looking grand and pleased with itself like someone of royal descent.
