Week 14...

This week's theme for the DOM challenge is Birds. At first I thought I would try something different. A different theme. Emily says it's fine to make your own up if you are not inspired by the theme she chooses. But I've had this little birdie stamp sitting on my work table for a couple of months. And the more I thought about birds the more I decided I enjoy them. They are the first signal of spring. And I frequently watch the cardinals in our lilac bush out the window while I work on the computer. I wrote the little poem because I love to listen to their tweet, tweet, tweet early in the morning at the beginning of spring. Hopefully they will all still be tweeting after get the forecasted snow over the next couple of days. Spring in Minnesota! Anything can happen, and frequently does!
