NEW from The Birdhouse Series -

"Birdhouse XIX"
manipulated digital drawing & collage by Mick Mather
"... what bird so sings, yet so does wail,
O 'tis the ravished nightingale,
jug, jug, jug, jug, tereu, she cries,
and still her woes at midnight rise ..."

There's a lot going on in this image. I like the feeling of multicolored spring you bring to us with this scenery.

Yes, the hint of spring is there ... yet still dark and a little cold.

... yes, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow. Six more weeks of winter (sorry, Susu).

And the blackbird's singing at the top of the pine. Is it a pine?

I'm not sure, but it looks more like an oak to me. :)

I suspect that you Kiwi's don't celebrate "Groundhog's Day"? Over here, February 2nd is the traditional day for the hibernating beastie to come out of it's underground burrow to see if it's good weather. It's been said that if he sees his shadow, we'll have 6 more weeks of winter. If he doesn't see it? Well then, we have 42 more days of winter. :D
