Odonata Tensica 5

A dragonfly has just spent a minute or so foraging along the hedge at the bottom of the garden. 

Not that remarkable, I suppose, except it's 06.30 in the morning. The outside temperature might be has high as 13 deg C, the sun rose 20 minutes ago, but is nowhere near shining on the rear of our property. 

I wasn't even that awake, belatedly grabbing my specs to try to ID the species before it flew off. Brown Hawker was my best guess. 

But it does set you up for the day.

Good morning!

I read book-ended. Was the rest of your day "good" as well? What happened? Now you're free to move to the coast, no?

The bit in between was work! However, the 'bored?' of the title was just a lousy pun for the estate agent's 'board'.

Life's a bit hectic at the moment. I will let everyone know what's happening, when I know!
