Mr and Mrs

Anyone out there NOT love peacocks? Shame on you! I get so excited whenever I see one, the delight when they fan out their stunning tails and vainly enjoy the gasps from all who watch. I was delighted to come across this little pair...

Poor old peahen, one of the species where the male is the fairer sex. No hairy bums, bald heads and pot-bellies here thank you very much :-p

mwah

They are heavy-ish, brass I think, I'll probably use them as little paperweights or something. Interestingly peacocks seem to be very en vogue this year in fashion, I have spotted numerous tops and maxi-dresses in high-street stores in peacock fabrics, lovely!
