Hello Spring! Copper Wire Bird Necklace

"Spring is the time of year when it is summer in the summer in the sun and winter in the shade."
Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

The anticipation of spring -  I look forward to warmer temperatures, clear air, garden cleanup, flowers starting to poke through the soil, and the arrival of new/more birds.  We always have Junco's and chickadees in our backyard during the winter and spring months, so the arrival of other species is something that we look forward to.  And, because I have a fondness for these creatures, and like creating jewelry with images of them, I'm posting this necklace that I recently made.  The frame is pure copper wire, wire wrapped seed beads and poppy jasper stone beads.  I have it listed here on my website.

August Bike Ride

Well, it certainly has been a long time since I've posted something here.  I just haven't wanted to.  I've had a strong urge to hibernate and/or withdraw since covid, Ukraine, world craziness and house renovations.  Anyway, the other day, TP and I finally got out for a bike ride this summer and it was a great ride.  I have an old HTC phone so the picture quality isn't the best, but I have a couple to post anyway.  The temperature was perfect and since it was mid week there were only a few people out on the millennium trail.  It was a peaceful ride as we passed by a newly plowed hayfield..... .....and row after row of tall corn stalks.  I don't know the name of this type of cloud, but they added to the enjoyment of the ride. The humidity has passed, the evenings are cooler, but summer is still here.  Ah, but the crickets are out and some of them are loud. “The crickets felt it was their duty to warn everybody that summertime cannot last forever.” ―E.B.
