I have not been able to paint it seems because slowly spring is arriving and I just want to be outside! Mr Chippie came out of hibernation last week and from there it has been birds galore arriving. Also yesterday the Osprey is on the nest...the mate has not arrived yet but which ever one it is is arranging and adding more twigs...getting ready. They get so heavy and can actally end up holding water so that in a bad storm they fill and get so heavy they come down...this one is becoming pretty big. I always feel good when I see them both there so hoping any day now the mate will arrive.
