All Lovey Dovey!

last week,
very early one morning...
when the dew was still thick and white on the grass,
two doves were doing their moves...
on a nearly wordless wednesday!

i suspect these two are presently building nests
and preparing to raise a family...

who'd a' thought it at 5.30 am
on a sunny queensland morning!

....singing 'two turtle doves'...
now i'm off to find the partridge in a pear tree...

naturally Carol xox


  1. Hope the pears on that pear tree taste better than the plums on my plum tree!

  2. Oh you have captured and shred a natural whimsy!
    This was so cute..and clever...lovey dovey!

    Stop in sometime...I'll put a pot on!
