Village photos and some music

We have 2 tortoises in our garden now. Male and female (so Mr A says) so maybe
 there are babies somewhere.

I love storks

This is an old photo which I found on our village Facebook page

Finally, I'd like to share a song by Kurdish singer
 Rojin.  I love Kurdish music,
and Rojin singing Kevokim is my absolute favourite.

  1. I did like your tortoises....when at school tortoises inhabited the quad and had right of way even over the headmistress - a fearsome lady.

    1. Good. I'm glad. I have the album by Rojin containing this track. Unfortunately it's on cassette tape so I need to look for the CD

  5. We used to have a male and a female tortoise but they never had babies. Would be lovely if yours did.
    Great village photos too, Ayak - I love the one of the women making gozleme (whatever that is - will away to check!)

    1. We had a couple of baby tortoises here last year Annie, and two years ago we had four or five in the garden. So I'm hopeful.

      I did a post a long time ago about gozleme, you can look at it here http://ayak-turkishdelight.blogspot.com/2011/12/gozleme.html

  7. Our Tortoise emerged this week. Every winter, he/she buries itself in the garden then pops up about now. It's always fraught with will he/she won't he/she. Seeing as you know the sex of yours maybe you can tell me how to tell?

    1. It's lovely when they appear isn't it Carol? I have absolutely no idea how you tell the sex...Mr A just informed me confidently that they wer a boy and a girl. I'm not sure he really knows to be honest.
