Where we currently live we constantly hear the sound of the birds in the morning. We have two large trees at the front of our house known as 'Bearded Fig Trees' and there are 3 different types of birds that seem to nest quite happily in their branches.
Obviously while they frolic in the trees they are usually tweeting away at different pitches and tones and it is quite a beautiful way to start the day as I flow into my normal morning routine and start my day.
The other thing they seem to bring here as well as in my old house are seeds of unknown trees. I just found out today that the thing that I thought was a weed is actually a pomegranate tree! I couldn't be happier as I had actually just brought one after contemplating growing from seeds but the plant was cheaper than buying just one fruit.
Anyway along with bringing seeds and song they also leave their calling card on the back of chairs and the hand rail, so that part of their morning joy is not appreciated, but I guess I can live with it.
I wanted to share my latest of the series of paintings that I had done on small cards.
