There's a Mouse in the house

I couldn't resist this picture.
We have a mouse in the house or should I say the kitchen and he is far to quick for me to be able to get a picture of him or her. So I think this one is a good substitute.
I'm a little frustrated about the whole mouse thing though. People kept telling me to get a mouse trap and get rid of it, but as far as I'm concerned he/she is doing no harm. Why is it we are so quick to eradicate these beautiful little creatures. It is not causing a problem, so I am keeping him/her. I have become quite fond of the little feller. I have told him to keep out of the way of the cat though.
What do you think? Am I being over protective. Surely we have to expect wildlife to share our space, when we live in the country. They share with us their space and I don't hear them complaining.I wish that we could all live in harmony with nature. What a better place it would be. X

Glastonsbury Fix

Its been a week already since I went to Glastonbury, I just don't know where the time goes.
I always feel revitalized when I come back, not sure whether its the water from the well or just Glastonbury itself. Well to be quite honest I'm not really bothered, I just know its the most amazing place to be.
I must admit I do find it abit of a struggle to get to the top of the Tor,but its well worth it. I like it when its quite windy, as its blows away all the old cobwebs.
Only another two weeks and I'm back again. Yippee!

I do believe in Faeries

For many years now I have been a real fan of Brian Froud. Mesmerized by his works.He is a complete and utter genius. I never tier of gazing at his fantastic drawings and paintings, which often encourages me to get out the watercolours and interpret some of my favorites. He totally captivates my imagination.

Why is snow so magical

I love snow it really changes the whole landscape, any excuse to get the camera out. We dont often get snow here as we are sheltered by the South Downs, so I try and make the most of it when im not working. Onyx turns into a puppy again. Considering she is around 12 years old there are certainly no signs of her slowing up, it sends her into a frenzy of excitment. I feel privileged to live so near to the countryside and share with the wildlife their wonderful habitat.
