Bird in the Sherborne Missal
The amazing Sherborne Missal was made in England in the early fifteenth century; read all about it here. If you scroll all the way to the bottom of that page, you’ll find a line that takes you to a page where you can “turn” many pages in this book — and see more birds!
Morning glories climbing fence, May 30, 2016
Another installment in the category flowers on a weathered fence. This fence is on a little street near the pool house lined with tiny old bungalows: a pocket of the neighborhood untouched by several waves of mansion and mcmansion building — sweet!
