Around and about
The cement mixer in the foreground marks the begining of the construction of a swimming pool in our neighbours garden. The process will take three months to complete.
The last of the winter snows cap the peaks of the nearby Pyranees.
The birds in the picture are egrets they feed on
grasshoperrs and crickets on the grass lands near us.
Last year Mrs. Gravy and I stalked an egret on our own land. I played the part of the wild life expert teaching Carol how to creep up on the bird, describing it´s life style in the process. She was most impressed and rather excited until she raised the Binoculars and said ,"It´s a carrier bag!"
Deflated is putting it mildly!
