I have teamed up again with the talented Sandra (or Daffy as I like to call her), from Wild Daffodil to bring you another bit of silliness this Saturday. Sandra is incredibly artistic and creative, and I just love the images she has created out of shells, stones and flowers.
One of the nicest things about Sandra’s blog is that you never know what she is going to get up to next, from beach art to knitted wigs, and mandalas to making spirals in her garden.
We haven’t done a Silly Saturday for a while, but I couldn’t resist joining in when Daffy showed me her latest brilliant creation. Birdy McBirdFace.
Birdy had such a handsome face
In flight, he was elegance and grace
As he rested on the beach
He heard a loud screech
Sid Seagull flicked sand in his face.
Sid was loud and uncouth
And strutted with the arrogance of youth
Swinging his hips
And gorging on chips
He teased Birdy for being long in the tooth!
Birdy challenged Sid to a race
The seagull laughed in his face
With my youth and my size
I’ll easily take first prize
But his boasting was sadly misplaced!
As Birdy flew high in the sky
Sid regretted pecking that meat pie
With all the chips and the bread
He felt as heavy as lead
He couldn’t leave the ground if he tried!
Birdy was not one to boast
He won doing what he loved most
Flying along with the breeze
Above the crystal blue seas
He loved his life on the coast.
Longer days are coming
Bright and sunny early dawns
Nature shrugs off winter
As it stretches and it yawns
Waking from a slumber
Dusting off the gloom
Time to come alive now,
To blossom and to bloom
Spring has brought new outfits
For all the naked trees
Flowers are making pollen
To please the busy bees
Birds are coming home now
It time to meet a mate
It looks like spring is coming
And I for one, can’t wait!
My husband bought me a camera
To try to improve on my skills
You see, I am a point and press girl
Nothing fancy, no frills!
This one is rather larger
Than the phone that I normally use
With dials and buttons and lenses
About which I don’t have a clue!
I couldn’t wait to start using it
And snapped at all in my sight
Playing with all of the settings
And fiddling about with the light!
It has its own little knapsack
Where I can pack it away
Jammed in with all its accessories
Zipped up so it will stay
Then I see a bird in the garden
Oh, look at it hopping about
Now his wife’s come to join him
Time for the camera to come out
Because I didn’t want to break it
I eased it out from the case
But, the birds have now scarpered
A photo shoot, gone to waste!
I went to a local beauty spot
Practising shot after shot
Trying out all of the settings
Pleased with the photos I’d got
I went to put them all on computer
And then something went horribly wrong
All of my beautiful pictures
Had just disappeared and had gone!
