As you can see, the metal rods (guaranteed to keep the birds out) we placed in the eaves on the underside of the second floor porch are quite decorative. And useless. The golden finches managed to start construction despite our (apparently not very effective) roadblocks. The DH wants to knock it down so there won’t be any “mess” (which is not at all the word he used) to clean up in the coming weeks. But so far my veto has held.
Our own nest is also empty (both kids haven long been grown and on their own) – although son and daughter-in-law came for a lovely, although short visit this weekend. Once they were gone, I had the urge to play with paint … well, gesso, tissue paper and paint. Other than mistaking a bottle of permanent black ink for black acrylic (when they say “permanent” they mean permanent – my poor hands will never be the same), I think the background came out quite well. I’m thinking I’ll put a girl silhouette on it, but I haven’t decided for sure. But I am sure part of this background it will end up in a digital product sometime soon.
How did you spend Mother’s Day?
