First BlueBird of 2011

Hey Friends, It has been cold and drizzly here in SW Virginia for days. No, for months ! I am way past ready for some spring like weather. So one way to keep your sanity is to pretend. Learned about this pretend stuff from my GrandDaughter while we play with Barbie Dolls. Adults have a tendency to forget about pretend and play. Barbie has a dozen friends to pretend with so it is good practice. Anyway, I was pretending like I saw this first BlueBird of 2011. It flew straight into my studio and sat on this silk tree limb for a couple of hours. Long enough for me to get a pretty good likeness and a couple of photos. Then she pulled out her hankie and said excuse me, I must be home before midnight ! I certainly enjoyed her visit and can't wait to tell Lillie. Happy Trails. ps-I have tried 3 times to make this post in paragraphs as I usually do. But it won't happen so I'm sorry it is so difficult to read . No relief for the eyes.

Maybe the bluebirds are flying east and I'll see one soon. We have lots of robins. I like this--I hope he/she's the bluebird of happiness.

^Hehe, this part made me giggle. I have a thing for birds, and I agree that they are symbolic of springtime. I'm hoping the weather will start treating you nice very soon!

Hi Sue!

This blue bird is LOVELY! Great work. Some of those blue birds have started to visit us in Colorado too! A sure sign of spring. Yay!
