Warm Days

Winter has now 'officially' ended and Spring is here.
Outside a  symphony plays. The musicians are black velvet gowned, red breasted and speckle chested. Rook, blackbird, twitterings of hedge sparrow, sweet song of robin, and enchanting lull of song thrush. Celandine, primrose and white violet scent the spring air and the sun is warm. I'm wearing short sleeves in March.

I've made some birds.
Little birds with hearts and toadstools on.


And I finished 'Peaceable Kingdom'

I hope you are enjoying the sunshine and birdsong as much as I am?
Happy Spring! x

  7. I certainly am...I love your creations, what adorable little toadstools.
    Every evening I adoringly watch a starling that faces the setting sun and sings a beautiful song.
    Wishing you many happy days.

  9. Trish.. Glad to hear you are enjoying the starling song. I listen to a song thrush each evening that sings to the first stars. I tried to record it the other day. :)

  10. Peaceable Kingdom is such an apt name for how I feel when looking at this.

    The birds hardly stopped here in the woodland this year but now the weather has warmed their song has raised a notch or two and are joined by the woodpeckers drumming out their love songs.

  15. What a lovely calming painting. :) I love your birds too, slightly different to your last ones but equally as lovely. What amazing weather we're having isn't it? I was in Wiltshire at the weekend, it was glorious.

  21. What a beautiful, beautiful kingdom you've created! Can't stop looking at all the creatures asleep.
    Your birds remind me of my backyard bunch of birdies. A bright greenfinch shines like a secret jewel between them!
