Welcome swallows

When I started this blog and it was a tender little baby I didn’t want to go straight out into the world with it. They say babies should stay with their mums for about 6 weeks and then gradually be introduced to new people. Well, this lovely little blog, apple of my eye,  is just about that old now so I’m taking the big step of introducing it to my friends. The first round of social engagements starts today. Feel free to browse through past posts, make comments (preferably supportive ones :)) and generally get involved.

I will be doing my gypsy thing again very soon and will document my travels here so if you would like to know what I’m up to you can come back and visit, or subscribe at the bottom of the page.

  1. My dear friend offered your website on her blog and that introduced me to your artwork which I greatly admire!
    I admire your courage to “blog out”….have safe and blessed journies.

  2. Thanks Mollie. I appreciate your visit and your comments. I am very excited about my next road trip – just me, the dog, the camera, the laptop. I hope you will pop in sometimes 🙂

  3. Barn swallows bring back fond memories of the farm. They used to nest in my horse barn and, as the babies grew, the littles ones would just step out of the nest onto a rafter and chirp at me as I cleaned stalls or fed horses. One day I’d go down and they’d all be gone till the next year. Of all birds I’ve known, they have seemed to be the least fearful of humans. Thank-you for this one Kirsty!

    • They are fearless, aren’t they? I’ve only ever heard then called ‘Welcome’ swallows. They are considered good luck here if they nest at your place. This nest was in the last home I rented – a beautiful place in a forest that unfortunately felt too dangerous to live in after our experience with the fires last year. Unfortunately this little one didn’t make it through the incredible heat wave that led up to the fires. The parents came back and nested in the same place again the next spring.

  4. I am so pleased you discovered my blog, and let me know, because now I’ve discovered yours ! What a breath of fresh air. We seem to have similar soft-spots (Dire Straits !)

  5. Hey Kirsty,
    Love yer stuff. may your travels be brimming with love n magic.
