something to crow about






Birds...
Nests...
Eggs....
















they're cropping up everywhere! I just can't get enough! Lately they've been my muse...chickens, swallows, bluebirds, magpies.....it's quite the peep show!

short squatty nests, long stretched nests, mini nests so many so little time!

blue eggs, brown eggs, speckled eggs petite and oversized! Our chickens are laying like it's going out of style...and what an array! With each cackle of the hen I know there's another treasure in the nestbox! Each with their own distinct style....aracanas with the clear sky blue..., cochins with coffee and cream brown, bantams with devonshire cream ....even some perfectly freckeled!

I see I'm not the only one with the fever.....click over to http://earthangelstoys.com and check out Jens blog!

These paintings are beautiful...I can see why you can't get enough!

And those eggs! I can hardly believe they come straight out of the chicken that way! Ain't Mother Nature grand?

OK, I'm reading backwards since discovering your blog... be still my heart! I LOVE chickens and nests and eggs and... Oh my! I just love your paintings of the eggs in a nest.
