Watch the birdie

One of the birds in our nest is taking flight this week. He's off 'up north' to start a new job!

We found him a new nest yesterday in a very pretty part of the world. We'll have to be a two-nest family for a while - but at least I get to have my dream of a pad in the countryside.

I drew this by pure coincidence but it does seem particularly appropriate.

I'm feeling a winged thing phase coming on.

I remember a pen and ink sketch of a parrot I did for my Grandmother when I was a young lass. She had it stuck on her lounge wall for years, alongside the paintings by Grandfather and pictures of kittens and puppies and of course all the photographs of loved ones. It's time to go feathery for a while I think (alongside the poppies, the obsession of which shows no sign of abating!).

Sharing today with my friends at Sunday Sketches.

  14. Just the words I was about to write - sweet little birds, ready to try out a little flight. As the saying goes - "We can give our children two thing, One is roots, the other is wings".

  15. hmmm. I wonder where you will roost? You are always in flight, whether it be your new work or new writings. Truly you are a gifted artist.

  16. Glad the poppies aren't abating, but these little fellows are very sweet... not sure how to feel about a bird leaving the nest though... unless it was a very messy bird who doesn't pick up after themselves and hoovers all the food in the fridge... then I would be waving them off happily...xx

  20. Can I simply just say what a comfort to find someone that genuinely understands what they are discussing
    online. You actually understand how to bring a problem
    to light and make it important. More and more people must look at this
    and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you're not more popular since you definitely possess the gift.
