They're nightingales! It's now warm enough to sleep with the window open (and anti-mozzie stuff in action) and from about 11.30 to midnight we can hear the male nightingale singing. It sounds uncommonly like one of those children's bird whistles which you fill with water to make a lovely, bubbling whistle. You can find out more here.
Now, I need to take a break from posting, as life has been good but hectic recently! I feel really out of touch with your blogs, so I'm going to spend a week visiting rather than posting. I hope I'll pop by your blog soon...
While I'm not posting, I'll leave a giveaway here for you! I currently have 191 friendly followers, so, choosing 191 as as good a number as any, I'll give 191 mixed buttons and 191cm of crochet lace to the winner of my giveaway. That's a lot of buttons! I'll post them anywhere in the world. Please leave a comment here, any time before 4pm French time next Friday, and then I'll draw a winner! In the meantime, I hope to visit your blogs sometime this week...
GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED
I'm going to delete any non-entry comments just to give everyone a fair chance, and then I'll make the draw - best of luck, friends!
