The letter 'Q' would naturally be for 'Queen' or 'Quilt', but this time I would like to show off our FIVE cats, who are not really quintuplets.

Three have the same mother and father, and the other two, who look like identical ginger twins, have a different set of parents alltogether. (If you are curious about muliple births in humans, check out Wikipedia's page here.)

What is it that is so interesting? Why are they looking so intently out the window?

 It's the magpie's nest, of course.*
 
See the nest?

My theme for A to Z is my favourite things that might show up in written stories, poems, paintings or jewellery. This is my list of subjects that I would like to work with.


 
Best wishes,
Anna










*P.S.
Magpies are intelligent birds of the corvidae familia, including the black and white Eurasian Magpie, which is one of the few animal species known to be able to recognize itself in a mirror test.

That's a lot of kitties! I never was a fan of orange cats but then I fell in love with one at the SPCA. We couldn't bring him home but I've been in love with all orange kitties every since.

Have fun with a-z. :)
