The unique adventures of a fluffy bird in the wild West Highlands of Scotland.

Install Theme
It was altogether too cold on the seashore, so Algy retreated to a more sheltered spot. The wind and rain had been battering the long grasses and wildflowers all weekend, leaving hollows which were just perfect for a fluffy bird to snuggle down into. Algy settled down to watch the gentle dance of the daisies:
          See, the grass is full of stars,          Fallen in their brightness;          Hearts they have of shining gold,          Rays of shining whiteness.          Buttercups have honeyed hearts,          Bees they love the clover,          But I love the daisies’ dance          All the meadow over.          Blow, O blow, you happy winds,          Singing summer’s praises,          Up the field and down the field          A-dancing with the daisies.
[Algy is quoting the poem Daisy Time by the early 20th century Canadian poet Marjorie Pickthall.]
