Ages ago we were asked to look after Marias cockatiel, then she decided she didn´t want her returned, so Coco became a permanent resident.
The furries basically ignore her, even when she is out flying around, as she has a very sharp beak and is not afraid to use it.
She has a mix of bird food and sunflower seeds and Chris is in the habit of emptying her bowl into a garden waste container, a few weeks ago I spied a rouge plant growing, rescued and potted it up.
This is what grew
We hope to harvest the seeds then Coco can have a few treats.
This photo was taken back in 1971 when I was 14 and had just met Chris at the local youth club.
He was well into his photography even then, back in the days when you had to wait to finish the roll of film before developing. Although he did have a dark room up in his familys loft for black and white prints. This was a slide that he has turned into a photo.
Can´t believe the long white socks with hot pants!
We found all sorts of photos whilst searching for ones for Mums video
Enjoy your weekend
