A sweet birdhouse surrounded by pink roses.
A sweet little birdhouse on a white picket fence, surrounded by pretty pink roses.
I wonder if the birds can smell the sweet scent of the flowers inside their home?
I wonder, too, if the thorns of the rosebush help keep predators away. I hope so.
A very simple image, but one that can carry several interpretations.
What drew me to paint this scene was a feeling of sadness for the family of this bird’s nest that had fallen from the safety of a nook on the corner of a house. I hope that the baby birds for whom it was built had already flown off to follow their own adventures.
For any “Empty Nesters” out there, this one’s for you.
A little blue, a little sombre, a little quiet, but with appreciation for the home you built, the warmth and coziness you provided, the love you gave.
Thank you, on behalf of your little ones.
