carving out a beautiful day ...


 finds from our walk today ...
  nests that we've passed
and taken photos of
through the seasons
were found blowing across snow & ice covered fields
 I couldn't leave them there to fall apart (although one of them did)
they now sit on a stack of lovely aspen logs ♥
 the frozen lake
 so still and beautiful
 at home, I've been carving out stamps ...
coming up with some whimsical designs :-)
which once I was finished created a lovely little nest,
a resting spot for one of my birdies ♥
carve every word
before you let it fall
~Oliver Wendell Holmes ~

Nature is is so unpredictable but the nests and logs belong together. And your carving are beautiful. Another talent I didn't know you had! :)

XO,

I love all you share.
We have a nest outside our computer room window here where we live and the sparrows are busy in it these days last year it was robins.
Love Jeanne

I love the birds nest pictures. But oh my, seeing winter so firmly entrenched in the background makes me sad for you. I hope spring makes its arrival soon!
