Great Dixter, Rye, England. The Solar was the principal private apartment of the medieval house. The fireplace dates from the late 15th century and its spandrels bear the devices of the Lewknors of Bodiam (a hawk’s lure) and the antlered head of the Windsors, who inherited Dixter about the time the fireplace was installed.
Great Horned Owls This is the kind of owl I knew growing up ~ fearsome, intelligent, strong, & wise. I thought they were forest gods. I was very respectful of them, a little afraid. So now when I see all these other cute types of owls, I have to smile.
