PostPosted: May 24, 2020 16:46    Post subject: Stay at home - Coronavirus / Covid-19 - De-scaling  

It seems that in Europe we are de-scaling and returning to our routines pre-Covid (with the danger that in October the mountain will be higher with a new stage of the pandemia)

So let's say goodbye to the Nature that has reminded us that it exists as soon as we have stayed at home and we have not disturbed her.
For that farewell I use this video from a month ago of dolphins in the port of Ataköy in Turkey swimming among yachts thanks to the stop of maritime traffic through the Bosphorus Strait.

Goodbye Gea, we will miss you

And we now have coyotes in San Francisco. Some people think that they are stray pet dogs!

Spring has sprung here in the North. No social distancing for these beauties.

In this confinement, it seems that you have time for everything, apart from updating my collection, I have dedicated myself to taking photographs of the roses that I have in the garden, I have been seeing every day how the same rose was evolving ... Photographs are from the end of April ...

With the peace and silence of the confinement the hoopoes have appeared in Barcelona. They have a kind of African beauty and, like me, they like the absence of noise.

Jim has been home for many weeks as he works from home. We like to go out and ride our Vespa scooters. Today we did a drive by baby shower!

Love the hoopoes, Jordi! It is also one of our favorite birds and enjoyed their presence in Spain while we were birding there. We miss the wine and tapas and the people who were very nice to us everywhere we went. We will be back.

One of the things that keeps us busy while having to remain at home is our music. Some of you might remember Joan and I playing on the lawn in front of our sales room at the Inn Suites during the Tucson show. Jordi's room was nearby, so I am sure that we tormented him on a regular basis. With all of our local performances now cancelled, we will play from our front porch when the weather is good, and have started a series of videos we call "The Living Room Sessions", which we post to the internet on Facebook and YouTube. Here is an example, a waltz called A Bruxa composed by Anton Seoane of the well-known Galician band Milladoiro.

Although we normally associate Hibiscus with a bush it can be grown, even in the city, as a tree and can be very attractive.

PostPosted: Jun 07, 2020 12:54    Post subject: Stay at home - Coronavirus / Covid-19 - the (relative) normality is coming back?  

It seems that, slowly, the (relative) normality is coming back, at least in Europe.
Who also seem to come back with force after all that wonderful diversity of all kind of birds during the confinement days, are the inevitable seagulls.
Scavengers of the cities close the sea, always with pretensions, like this one that seems to say: "the fireplace is mine"
