On the last day of May this year, I drove to the northernmost point of our island, at Brandasund, and caught this beautiful sunset. I love watching the sun sink into the ocean. At this time of the year the sun set in the north west, and it will keep moving north until summer solstice.
These are pictures from the heart post I lost a few weeks ago when blogger had problems, so a few of you may already have seen them. I decided to post them again though, as I think the heart is amazing.
We visited the Portuguese island Madeira, out in the Atlantic ocean, in January 2009. One day we hiked out to this view point, and had someone there take our picture. I have looked at it lots of times without seeing the heart way out in the background. Only after I started hunting for hearts did I spot it, and of course now it's so obvious it screams at me!
We've had a lot of house sparrows at the feeder lately, and last week babies turned up too. They mostly hopped around the deck, having a go at some sunflower seeds without managing to get the shells off. So they were constantly chirping for their mum to feed them. A lot of the time she ignored them, but sometimes she would do it. I got pictures of the feeding scenes several times, and it was so adorable and I am grateful and humble to have been able to watch it. Needless to say, I got nothing else done that day, but it was worth it! :-)
