Mother wren has been laying on her eggs since May and they just would not hatch. I think her choice of nest location was probably not the best. She built her little home right above our garage door that generally gets quite a bit of in and out traffic. For obvious reasons, she finally gave up and flew off to a new place to call home. Once we determined that the nest was abandoned for good, I plucked it off the ledge it was so carefully crafted into. To see 5 little eggs delicately snugged in amongst the soft down, moss and twigs, I just could not contain myself. How precious is this, and so amazingly beautiful. It is hard to see in this picture, but there are tiny red dried flowers tucked into the sides of the nest as well. Ahhhh Mother nature...I want to thank the beautiful souls that came to play at my nest this weekend during my studio workshops. I will always treasure the moments and the new found friendships that are formed during these intimate gatherings. Everyone had so much talent and creativity to bring to the group. I hope to see all of you again at the many other artful events here and abroad.
Just a few weeks out and I will be getting on a plane and heading to the ZNEConvenzione event to teach in Pleasanton CA, August 22-24th. I believe there are a couple spots open in my Gridlocked class. To sign up, go here. After that it's back to my home town to teach at Art and Soul in October.
Hope to see you there!
