At home in my garden studio, playing with acrylics, and a cuckoo is calling from nearby woodland. The sweetest sound on a lovely sunny day. Later as I was sat painting I spotted Blue just about managing to stay upright in the windy-woo weather. He was determined to display and was sheltering alongside the tall yew hedge that runs through to the bottom of the garden. The whooshing sound of the wind and his determination to stay upright as the wind blew through his feathers was impressive.
