Birds in Winter

Use the talents you possess - for the woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except for the best. ~Henry Van Dyke






A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. ~Chinese proverb

At first glance, I thought they were real. Amazing sculptures. Love the scarf and mittens.

Nice birds.
Those could have a place in my garden.

Hugs from Norway.

LOL, beautiful sculptures and lovely words!
I second how nice they would look in my garden, assuming I had one! Still, not quite a dancing blue cement lobster......;-)

We must all be hungry for birdsong.

Being a musician and artist for myself and those around me, I always need to be reminded with these quotes that I still matter even if I am not a professional! Thanks!

I kept looking at your photo of the birds thinking "does this bird have mittens on". Great sculpture!!!
