The new gardens were pretty successful this season in spite of the crazy weather we witnessed all summer long here. New friends were made. So I took a day a few weeks ago for some me time. You know, that time when you just put the million and one little things you must do daily on a back burner and simply enjoy the day.
This picture inspired me to start a project for my neighboring gardening friend Paul. The farm houses many birdhouses.. the land, a protectory for all living creatures.. a very special place indeed. The bluebirds set up housing in this nesting box right in the middle of my garden and we witnessed the building and care they so painstakingly take to prepare their nests for hatching out. The day we heard the first peep peeps was so great! I’m hoping they will return once again next year. I know I’ll be watching for them.
I so seldom have the time for painting, nor am I a painter..but do enjoy dabbling from time to time. It was a fun project for me, and hopefully a nice garden remembrance gift for my friend.
Sketched and begun..
Here’s the finished picture. Very primitive I know.. but a great me day, all in all.
