le apothicaire

le apothicaire

The owner of the house where I am staying has arranged these little glass bottles on the window-ledge outside the door of my room. They are behind a blind that is permanently drawn. When you leave in the morning you see only the blind. When you return (even in the dark) the little bottles are lit up behind the blind.  At sunset the bottles can look quite spectacular.

This morning I nearly killed a wild bunny the size of my hand.  I stopped the car just in front of him, then reversed a bit, got out and picked him up. His/her siblings had fled into the grass. I examined the bunny, and it seemed fine. But perhaps it wasn’t well - why hadn’t it fled from the car or me?  I put it back in the hedgerow into which its siblings had disappeared.

I’ll be looking out for splats in the road this evening.

I looked behind the blind yesterday morning and they are all empty perfume bottles.
And, btw, I haven’t seen any splats on the road.
