Nature's Rhythm

It is never truly spring till the birds come to take a bath. After a few late winter storms and freezing temperatures, finally this morning  there was this female cardinal luxuriating in a warm bath all fluffed up while the mate watched from the nearby forsythia bush. It was a comforting sight. Then in the afternoon I saw a handful of dark eyed juncos and a robin. Now I can say, spring is here.

Enrolling in Rutgers Cooperative Extension's Master Gardener program has made plants of all types an ever expanding source of inspiration for my art. As part of the program I will be completing some of the required sixty  hours of volunteer work in the herb garden. The herbs above and below were created using papercut techniques.
