Warm warm week in the land of sun.
So warm that rose bushes are puffs of leaves.
And, little petals reach for the sunlight.
First little nosegays fill the mantle.
I love firsts, don't you?
The delphinium unfurled and I found a tall arroyo lupine full of flowers hidden around some water pipes.
I brought some in along with the first wisteria blooms.
The rose arbor is also about to explode.
So I took a few white roses.
I simply couldn't help myself.
It's definitely almost spring and nearing Easter isn't it?
There is this song called Église by Chicane that reminds of me of nature's great magic of firsts.
Sun over horizon, melting snow.
Green pushing through earth, flowers forming.
Such gifts we are given.
It's was a glorious day.
I'm still painting clay, in fact I made a new creature last night on a whim.
So, she's fired and ready for paint too.
Closer, getting closer.
Here's to a wonderfully lovely weekend.
I may escape for a couple days.
See you super soon <3
Ps: Some random bird pics from today.
Lots of bird action in my garden.
Loud chatter of all kinds.
Swirls of 5 hummingbirds and some other cuties fighting.
Cardinals chasing each other around, quail making nests.
A dove hidden in her nest above my little gallery, sitting quietly watching me.
So much bird life all day long.
See you soon!
