Look who was knocking on my office window this morning!
A lovely hairy woodpecker! I managed to snap a photo just before Naomi leaped off my lap onto the windowsill.The woodpecker was not impressed by this feline apparition and swiftly flew off.
And that orchid has been blooming for 14 months straight! And the pic is me at age 12 with my Irish grandmother. She and my grandfather moved to England when they were newly married, and lived in Cricklewood (which was quite the Irish ghetto in London) for most of their adult lives.
