Recently I took a couple of friends, visiting from Bangkok, to see some Khmer ruin sites not far from our home.
One of the visitors was Koen, who is a prolific and talented artist. Above is Koen's interpretation of the very attractive Ta Kwai Khmer structure...a 900 year old sandstone building that is hidden in rainforest on the Thailand:Cambodia border. I have this work, printed on canvas, on a wall in my home.
Here is a picture I made of Ta Kwai:
15deg in the middle of the day...this is the coldest day our cats have ever experienced! Snowy and Smoky have burrowed under the throw-over on our bed...
Bill, the goat, was on a table at the temple on Khao Sawai.
He noticed Na had a crisps bag, so approached her to see if she might be persuaded to share the snack. The bag had no crisps...it was full of jungle fruits Na and Aay had picked up on the hill behind the temple. Na showed the bag to Bill, so he could work out the situation for himself, and was even prepared to share the fruits. Bill put his snout in the bag, and checked it out. He then withdrew his nose from the bag, took a step back, then leaped forward and whacked Na hard on the kneecap with his battering ram forehead.
The message was clear..."Next time, bring crisps!'.
Na has a large, purple bruise on her knee as a memento.
Wasp on the Mango flowers...this sapling is barely 6 months in the ground but seems to be setting fruit.
