The Parable of the Prodigal Parrot!

Captain Flint, the parrot has been found and is now safely at home, he was spotted on the roof of some offices several miles away from home.

Up at the cottage, I found several piles of these seed husks on the bank above the little meadow by the burn.  The small hole above the pile would suggest that a mouse or vole was responsible.

A little bright colour is provided by these crocus, the first I have seen this year.


  1. Mmm, yes, a couple of days ago I moved some scrap roofing sheets and there were plenty of old husks under them. I would love to actually see a mouse carrying an almond, but they must have got them there somehow!

  2. I'm so glad to hear that the Captain is safe! I was worried...

  3. Does Captain Flint have a coat of many colours?
