Hi Paul. I don't see where I have mentioned numbers of adders. Yes if you go right up to the very north of Scotland - Sutherlandshire it never gets dark. We went touring in that area and we walked back to our caravan in broad daylight at 3 am.
My son and his mate went on a camping trip and were tramping through the heather when his mate spied what he thought was a funny looking stone and was about to investigate it. Don't disturb it cried David it is a snake. David said he never saw his mate move so fast. Usain Bolt would have had a hard time catching him.
Good morning Paul. I hope you are well. Thanks for the scribble of me relieving myself despite the risk of being bitten by an adder - only just noticed it this morning. The adder looks as though he cannot believe his luck with a nice juicy area just for the taking.
Forgot to mention the tree.......dunno what tree it is, but I think you may be right with it being an oak.....it's very gnarly. It's so gnarly in fact, that I got fed up working on it and ended up thinking 'that'll do now'. :o)
Thanks Paul.......Yeah, carrion crows, I'd forgotten about that. Crows will eat anything going, which is, along with their intelligence, probably why there's so many of them. They're don't just eat carrion either, they're also predatory. They will catch, kill and eat small rodents or anything else they can swallow......proper survivors.
As for their sense of fun......When I used to have a ciggy break at work, I'd sit and watch the crows from the rookery in the hospital grounds, and they just love to loon around....very funny, and they really do, do things just for the crack.
Yes I remember the dog on wheels toy. What a beautiful detail to have included in the painting. Your art tells a story Paul, that's a gift. I envy your ability. Through your art you can recreate that magic.
Hi Paul. No I live in a village called West Ashton in Wiltshire. Pretty close to Avebury and Silbury Hill as well as Stonehenge. I remember when all these monuments were completely open and we used to climb all over the stones at stonehenge and take a picnic to the top of Silbury hill ! All you can do now is stand and look from a distance. Shame in a way but understandable
