This is an Etsy mini of some of the offerings of one of my favorite Etsy sellers, MincingMockingBird. I love her bird paintings, and I wanted to share. Aren't they cute?!
I heard the first birds of spring this morning. It startled me, actually. We've been so steeped in cold, windy, wintery weather up here in the Northeast, that spring just seemed like something far in the offing. But then there I was in bed this morning, waking up slowly, and I heard them--the happy chirpings of the birds in my yard. I guess this means spring really IS going to happen this year!
So of course I went out and dug around under the leaves in my garden, and out popped the beginnings of crocus, daffodil, and tulip greenery. Yay! I think I can begin to emerge from my winter cocoon, shake off the winter doldrums, and get back out among the living again. I've really felt a bit like a shut-in this winter. It's time to embrace the fresh air and soak up some sunshine so I too can bloom.
