Great embroidery, The embroidery by Angelo Filomeno doesn't look like embroidery at all, it's actually incredibley detailed!

The hatching birds in your reef are so cute, how did they end up there?

Everything's for the birds today. We have phoebes (any of a genus "Sayornis" of tyrant flycatchers) that nest in our breezeway despite our mostly non-lethal discouragement. This proceeds the annual shower of babies when we walk out, startle mom, and chicks inevitably fall out of the nest onto our heads. We are then shanghaied into the role of protectors from neighborhood cats until mom completes the flying lessons. I hope spuggy is better behaved :)

Hiay Sean, I agree about the Filomeno embroidery. I am wondering if it is machine embroidery. It is technically just so perfect and detailed.

It seems to be the invasion of the birds, because one is trying to sneak in the garage and build a nest. Our gazebo has a nest near the entrance, and now this one on the wreath one the front door. oh well lol!

Bill, Who knew we would readadjust our lives for the sake of a few birdies lol!

I think Virgil little spuggy is my motif, glad you like him/her.

oooh la la Jean I will have to pop over.

Hooray for the robin chicks! I love this time of year. Had crow fledglings in our backyard this morning. :)

Oh what great embroidery!

Sweet birdies...we miss them this year! For 3 years in a row a nest has been built and become the life spring board for a family of robins or doves. None here this year but many out in the garden!
