I'd planned to write today about the Common Grackles and Red Winged Blackbirds that have come in droves to the feeder but as I look outdoors this Good Friday in March I see snow. Snow!!! Ok, I DO live in Michigan now and that's to be expected. Spring is SUCH a tease!! But as I understand it Chicago is getting the brunt of the snow so our little storm is nothing to complain about.
The bird population has increased dramatically over the past few days. It's wonderful to hear their calls. It sounds like spring and even though it doesn't look like it yet the sounds make you feel so good.
I just finished up a pairing to my blue cupcake painting that is on my website http://www.maryhughesstudio.com. . I call it "Berried In Chocolate". Something many of us will be this weekend. Buried in chocolate eggs and bunnies.
