June Garden

During our recent frigid blast of winter I was thinking fondly of hours  spent watching birds on a friend’s property last summer. Bluebirds,cardinals, flocks of cedar waxwings,hummingbirds,finch and blue jay were among the creatures providing a show. Those birds stubbornly refused to pose long enough for me to take pictures. So I was obliged to content myself with photos of the surrounding property. But this was no hardship as the area is quite lovely;providing me with plenty of material for future work. This bird house image has been useful as you will see  below.

I kept my eyes open hoping to catch a glimpse of a scarlet tanager. I have been fascinated by this bird for years;seeing photos and illustrations in various field guides and encyclopedias. Though they are reputed to spend some time in the northeast;I have yet to see a live specimen with my own eyes.

So I have used artistic license ….incorporating this fellow into my fantasy of a back yard in June.
