Don't you just love birds? I love opening the doors and windows every day so I can hear them sing. I keep feeders just outside my workroom and they provide my music. I can hear them now as I type this post. Nothing can compete with nature's melody. I love them. I guess that's why I collect bird items ~ bird prints, bird nests (found fallen from the branches), bird egg shells, feathers, bird watercolors and needlework made by friends, etc. I also make bird themed items, I have made more of my A Bird in the Hand pieces than I can count and I love painting birds. My paintings are just whimsical watercolors inspired by 18th and 19th century fraktur art. My most recent ones are pictured above and may be seen in individual photos on the Artwork page of my website.
Below are some of the birds around our home...
TD ~ the turkey that won't leave. He's outside the pen and I'm inside with the chickens, lol!
Pierre, my Americana ~ I know, you're thinking ~ she named an Americana, Pierre???
One of the beautiful mourning doves that comes to visit...
Another beautiful visitor... Bobbie Jo, the Barred Rock hen... I'll be back in a few days to show a few more photos of the chickens. I have some really sweet ones of Pierre feeding his sweetheart.
Take Care & God Bless,
