For now it is good to be back home in the Florida sand. South Carolina was beautiful...still some spring rhodedendrons and azaleas hanging on. My sis-in-law has beds of irises just opening into huge blooms. They have a bird feeder just off the dining area in front of a bank of windows. Lots of cardinals, gold finches, wrens, house finches, and a stray woodpecker or two stopped by while we ate breakfast. I went to sleep one night to sounds of an owl in the woods across from their property. Stay tuned for more animal paintings coming soon!
