N & S's dog, Georgia found a bird's nest the other day. Georgia's a great dog, she find good things, and she's a small miracle because she looks like a big dog that has been zapped by a minimizer wand. And acts like it too.
N is giving the nest to George, a wonderful painter, who will no doubt will find it useful. He very kindly let me photograph it before taking it to his studio.
The poignant thing about this nest is that it isn't what you would expect from a normal bird's nest. It's a city bird's nest, with man-made objects muddled in with the usual twigs and leaves. There's ribbons and string, and it couldn't have been more perfect if I had imagined it.
