Another Blue Monday

Last day for this sweet BLUE birdie on my Ebay
I found this wonderful old frame. I did this watercolor today, just for this frame. Adding my little black bird and BLUE eggs
We took advantage of the nice weather and went to a favorite fishing spot. I worked on these little nests for more itsy bitsy charms. I'm painting little feathers on the back side
The sky and water are soooo BLUE....
As I'm walking through the woods, I am always on the look out for wonderful pieces of wood, branches, bark..I came across a few great pieces. I noticed there was a lot of bark that curled or cupped. As I'm picking them up wondering why they were like that...I picked one up, turned it upside down and I screeched!!! There was a baby snake inside...Im not squeamish about very much, I can handle the spiders, mice and insects...but snakes...NOOOOO!! I couldn't get over the feel of it, I scrubbed and scrubbed my hand...still creeps me out!!! Yes, my hubby got a big kick out it.lol.

Our garden would probably creep you out Laurie. We have a "resident" garden snake that we've named "Mr. Slithers". He hunts the voles and moles and helps keep them from destroying the roots of our plants.
He's actually quite shy. Now...spiders are what FREAK me out TOTALLY!!!
