Swan’s aren’t the only ugly ducklings. Flamingo chicks after their cute baby chick white plumage turns grey are ugly duckling contenders. Once they hit teenage chicks months their beauty starts to shine. Grey slowly starts turning pink as they start feeding for themselves.
I always love watching baby flamingos grow up in just a few months at Barcelona Zoo. I just hope when they get rehomed, it’s a good place. Nesting started back in May and all are now in nursery or kindergarten. Some chicks only hatched last week. Maybe this was a space thing at the zoo or a hierarchy thing. It’s sweet how they’re being independent but still need Mama and Dad to feed them. Continue reading “Flamingo Chicks”
Hola! Hello! Where’ve ya been?! Long time no see!
Now that Mercury is no longer in retrograde I’m feeling more myself. Yep, that’s what I blaming my absence on for the few natjtan readers. That and time ran away with a huge creative slump.
P was back for a few months. Laundry tripled! Laundry can take what seems life forever more so when hanging it out to dry. Flip side I got lunches Continue reading “Catch Up”
I feel like everything at the moment is buy and must haves. Everywhere I look is buy and must haves. I’m thankful in an odd way for my climbing classes. They cost extra a month, but compared to what I no longer buy or tempted to buy as I’m in class saves a lot.
I used to grocery shop after the gym at my local mall which meant popping into the shops. Now I only have enough time after class and post class practice for a quick supermarket sweep. 10 minutes is sometimes all I get to look around the mall before racing to the supermarket before closing. It’s good tactic more so when sometimes I only get there with 10 minutes until closing. City Center Continue reading “March April Photos”
The best things in life are free. Flip side, there’s no such thing as free dinner. Nature’s free for everyone. Inspiring and motivating us, making us feel good being surrounded by greenery, water or even sitting warm sunshine’s free. How we as humans treat nature maybe we shouldn’t haven’t it for free. Without sounding too preachy our actions may not immediately affect our own countries environments instead affecting other countries environments and how nature’s linked, it will affect our countries at some point. Nature always wins. Nature likes to survive. Nature likes balance. I sometimes feel we as humans are the caretakers of Earth and we’re not doing a great job looking after it. Nature on our own doorstep might not feel or look as beautiful as a far away tropical climate to care, (those in that tropical place might feel the same?) but it is and it’s free.
I know many people don’t agree with zoos (maybe if we took better care of nature and the environment we wouldn’t need them). There are some bad ones out there. Barcelona Zoo’s aim is to help endangered species around with world and raise awareness of Spain’s own wild animals. Some resident enclosure’s I’d love to be bigger Continue reading “Winter Zoo”
P was here this weekend and I found myself doing something I’ve been trying to hold off. I’m turning into my Mother.
My mother’s a great lady. To say she’s colourful’s an understatement. Always dressed in colour preferably from her autumn winter colours and is hardly every quiet. I’ve noticed there are something subconsciously I think are just family traits I do. I can be a ball of energy like my Mum that some people find uncomfortable. Or I can be the complete opposite and grumpy like my Dad. I’m making efforts not be grumpy. Reflecting on actions and changing them later in similar situations.
I’m mostly mute at home, only speaking to the cats. When P’s here, I’m almost non stop talking to the point I have to tell myself to shut up. That’s only part Continue reading “Like Mother, Like Daughter and Weekend Catch Up”
