from Archer (sleeping on the window seat in the background) and I
in our favourite spot in the kitchen.
Our table is surrounded by 4 very large windows
where I love to sit and have a cup of tea and look over our garden and watch the birds
at the feeders. East facing we get the rising morning sun and it just starts the day off beautifully.
The window seat has a pile of overstuffed, squishy pillows and always a blanket to pull over your toes.
It's a cozy spot (especially on a rainy or snowy day) to sit with a hot drink and good book... or to just *sit* and *be*
I've been puttering around the garden - so many changes happening already … new life poking its head up from the soil...I spotted the first daff today... the lilac has huge buds on it and for the first time *ever* the yellow finch have returned *before* the lilac is in bloom which has been very exciting!
The finch were on one side of a bird feeder and the male Cardinal on the other and the colours just took my breath away! So much beauty.
Of course, no matter how beautiful and colourful they are, the Sparrows still and will always have my heart xo
A handful of branches clipped last month from our Pussy willow have
been placed in a little concrete vessel for our Easter tree and I've been painting tiny little eggs to hang.
So far I've painted a *sparrow * swan* bee* feather* owl * heart* rainbow* nest with eggs* violets*
tulip* snowdrops* rabbit* lamb * bouquet of wildflowers*
tucked into some dried hydrangea
tiny little hangers created from garden twine
and attached to the top
I have a dozen or more eggs left that I may or may not paint …
I might just scatter them on the table, or place in a bowl, or nest …
They are so tiny, I had to sit them in a paint cap to hold while I painted ;-D
"Life is a spell
that everything conspires
to break it"
Have a wonderful day
