The Nest

The other day, I made a discovery.

Since this is the first Summer in our new home, I was wandering around our front garden, looking at the wonderful landscaping and plant choices that the previous owners had made.  I was trying to decide what needs a good pruning, when I focused in on the little pine tree.

I took a closer look and found a beautiful nest.



On even closer inspection, I gazed upon two little blue eggs.



They were the most incredible shade of blue that I have ever seen! 



So I was inspired to make a trip to our local paint store to see if I could find a colour just as lovely.  Well, I came back with something even better...



...ALL of the colours!



I signed out one of their fan decks, so now I just have to decide on one colour... or maybe two... or three...


Thanks for stopping in.
