Feeding Frenzy

frenzy of finches
A feeding frenzy of finches on my feeders!
I know it sounds crazy, but I've never had bird feeders before and I love it!

frenzy of finches II
Yesterday I counted about eighty goldfinches and purple finches around the feeders.
I've also had a few woodpeckers, chickadees, tufted titmice, wrens and sparrows too.
I could watch them all day!

The Borders

Birdie and the borders
Our Birdie (left) and her Border Collie buddies! It is amazing to watch them romp through the fields.
They are a highly entertaining pack. They play and chase and run soooo fast!
I can't believe they sat still for a picture!

My Tools

My tools of the trade: brushes, palette, paint.
I'm working today. It's quiet, the light is nice, not too bright.

I'm painting away and promise to have some new watercolors to show you soon.
Have a lovely weekend all!

But first, the giveaway, I picked one winner at random for my fat quarter bundle.
And the lucky winner is: Jodi from Yew Tree Nights! Congratulations!
