I did threaten to post more winter pictures, so here they are.
Trees, I love them. Tall and majestic, these ones don't have much snow cover since they are getting a bit of sun.
earlier post. Still looking good.
Anyway, don't think their fishing was going too well.
Now you're rightly thinking that since Shetland doesn't have very many trees, Woodpeckers should be rare, or non-existent. But in the late 60s a Woodpecker attacked an electricity pole at the back of my parents house to such an extent that the pole had to be replaced for fear it would break off at the weakened point. If I recall correctly the story even reached the pages of the famous Sunday Post newspaper.
Now, to get away from nature.
Vestnes had the opening of two new shops today. A new bookshop has opened, a branch of Notabene. Not that I'm overly enthusiastic about books, but they do sell nice jigsaw puzzles. ;)
But, that aside, congratulations to both shops. The wife visited Notabene, bought me a puzzle, and as the book fanatic in the house she was very impressed. I visited the new Rema shop, and I actually think they have just brought shopping in Vestnes 'almost' into the 21st century..
Anyhow, after another long day at work, I'm knackered, so bed beckons me.
Yun's aa fir enoo.
