Surprise surprise... this post isn't about Valentine's.
It's okay, there's plenty of time to get to that isn't there?
I've been more focused on my new feathered friend... Mr P
I'm not being unfaithful to hubby or anything that would cause gossip or scandal.
(Sorry if you were expecting more)
Mr P is the pheasant that surprised me with an early morning visit last week.
He obviously approves of our menu because he has regularly revisited.
I couldn't resist painting the amazing colours and pattern of his plumage... so here's my watercolour painting.
I have really enjoyed painting what appears to be a little wild bird collection.
The Firecrest, Bluetit and now the Pheasant.
If you would like to see another bird, then pop your suggestion in the comment section below.
I am thinking I'll have four in the collection or maybe even six if the suggestions inspire me.
Just outside the window are wooden post for the farmers field and yesterday I looked up only to see a stunning Sparrowhawk.
Unfortunately, whilst I reached for my camera I shouted out to my hubby and son who jumped up to see him.
That spooked him and he flew off to the woods.
I must remember to keep my mouth shut if he appears again and capture him on my camera, before letting anyone know he's arrived.
