The Birds


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.

Those bird paintings are just adorable, Sharon! Ah, yes, it's spring - here in California, we've been enjoying spring for several weeks now. Folks around here usually start hitting the beach in March. Isn't it wonderful to awaken to birdsong? Bloom, my dear!

I love those bird paintings! I am going to go visit her shop to get a closer look.

What a wonderful post...the first birds of spring!

You always seem to bloom...wherever you're planted, and whatever time of year!

These little birds are so charming!! I have family of little tiny birds that live in the bushes in front of my house and they have been fluttering about the past few weeks. I should take a picture of them and post it on my blog. I too am so ready for spring like weather and gardening. Thanks for sharing this cute post with us!

Those are lovely bird paintings!

I am hearing the birds as we speak, even though we are experiencing an unheard of Spring snowfall here in the Northwest! They must be wondering WHAT is going on!

Happy weekend,
Melissa
