Oh Happy Day!
The geese & ducks have been back for weeks now and the robins arrived a couple of weeks ago.
What a wonderful sound in the morning to hear the birds singing. They too are happy that spring is back.
I was further south over the weekend to visit my daughter. She's about 3 hours from here and the flowering trees were in full bloom.
The next photo is also a type of magnolia but the petals are smaller. I wasn't quite sure what type it was so I googled and found out it is a 'Betty' magnolia.
The photo below is of a dreary, rainy day last week when nothing had bloomed.
It's a close-up of my river birch tree in the backyard. I also took a close-up photo of just raindrops on
the window and combined the 2 photos to create more texture.
Kim Klassen's textures (warm sun, sweet treat & silence). And the saucer magnolia also has actions by The Pioneer Woman added.
I hope to have some actual artwork to post here by tomorrow evening. Tomorrow is studio day.
If anyone is interested in playing along with Kim's Texture Tuesday, just click the button below to find out more about it. It's so much fun! Warning--it's also very addicting...
Must get some actual work done--so until then.....
live your life creatively~
