The view outside my window this morning…What happened to my lovely spring? Even the birds are shocked into silence and hiding deep inside trees and bushes. I saw fox for the first time in several days; He is actually They; there are two of them, brothers. I have lost tabs on which one I treated and which one still needs dosing up against the mange. They look identical with their bare bottoms and black legs. I do feel despondent, how sort them out now?
To cheer myself up, I shall venture down to the cellar and sort out my remaining apple stash. I am sure that the thrushes will appreciate a late winter snack and I can make myself an apple pie with the few remaining good ones.
This is my Bramley in full regalia. The apples usually last me all winter; fabulous, isn’t it!
I am a ceramic sculptor living on the South coast near London, England. My work is influenced by my experience of the earth as a living being and seeing how we are all connected with eachother and with the things that surround us.
I create ceramic torsos using molochite clay which I often smokefire in galvanised dustbins. I also make House Gods to protect and amuse, and Fat Birds - little smokefired sculptures that tell the story about what it is like to be a fat bird at peace with its surroundings.

Yes, I was shocked too Anna, when I look out of the window and saw snow everywhere. Thankfully though, the sun came out, shining brightly, and melted it, so I could go shopping today, without falling over on the ice! LOL!
WOW!!! So you have two foxes to look after now. What an angel you are. Just wonder what the cat will think. He’ll think he is seeing double! Ha! Ha!
Sounds cool about the Bramley. Apple are delicious, especially in pies! Nom, Nom!
Have a lovely Week Anna! Much Love Paul OXOXOXOXOXO
Yes, the Skittle-Cat of great Delight is not a happy bunny at the moment; nor am I. What’s with this cold wet stuff?! Foxes come closer to the house when it is cold and I may be able to treat both at the same time; but so far I only see one at the time and I can’t tell them apart.
Somehow, I imagined Skittle-Cat wouldn’t be happy about the situation. It is also a pressure on you, when you have two foxes, instead of one, as it makes it harder to know, which one you have already treated. Yes, I cannot stand the cold and wet either. Looking forward to spring, when it warms up, and then my favourite season Summer! Have a beautiful Monday hon! Big Hugs Paul OXOXOXOXO
