I've changed my avatar - what do you think?
When I first joined a couple of years ago I was in such a rush to get on with things (we were in the throes of moving house) that I picked a name out of thin air (we had a lot of pigeons in this garden and Dovefromabove seemed apt, also we're both Vic and Bob fans). I kept trying to get a photo of the pigeons and collared doves who seemed to be in this garden all the while, but before long the regular visits from the pair of peregrines on the cathedral spire meant that we get very few doves and pigeons here. So I put on a photo of a frog that I'd just taken out in the garden, thinking that I'd soon change it.
I've tried a pic of a Turtle dove, but it's too small, so what do you think of this lovely lithograph of a dove, by Picasso (it's in the Tate) It'll remind me that I'm a painter as well as a gardener and cook, and I need to reclaim that bit of myself.
