Spring is here!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
A photo of the Robins, a family who moved in over the door to our gallery a couple of springs ago. We thought it was an odd place for a nest, but they seemed very happy there. It was worth the mess they made just to have the opportunity to watch them as they grew. Mamma and Pappa Robin both took very good care of them until they were old enough to fly away.
This year a Cardinal is raising her family in the clematis vine on our porch. I worry for their safety a little because they are too close to the ground and vulnerable to predators, but Mamma Cardinal thinks she has found the perfect spot. And as the leaves come out, she is camouflaged. If I can ever get her to sit still for a photo, I will post it here.
Happy Spring!!!!!

This would make a wonderful painting. Are you going to paint it? Nita

Thanks, Nita. Yes, I have been thinking about either a watercolor or pastel of it.
