I've been spending a lot of my time in the garden and studio, work is going well, things are taking shape and I'm feeling the fulfillment of all I've accomplished thus far. Yes, there's still a lot more to do, there always is this time of year. I left some fruit on the tree for the birds that seem to visit in a never ending stream from first light to the owl that came last night. It really is a wonderful distraction observing their antics....
the greedy mockingbird who believes it all belongs to him
chasing all the smaller birds away even the phanopeplas that are now here for the winter and come not for the fruit but for water.
Of course nobody can chase the jays away
comical as they always are.
There are also the pretty little warblers, skittish and shy....
always ready to flit
I added a new piece to my shop in admiration and love for The Winter Birds
Here's to a good week all, I know every one of you are busy too but I hope you take time for a few little distractions.
