My colorful surprise!!!!!

Here is is a very gray, overcast day with a little drizzle. I'm still in my pajamas cleaning some magazine piles out of the house and I look out my studio window to see these GORGEOUS peach faces love birds eating out of my birdfeeder!!!!! Yes, I live in Phoenix and yes, most all our birds are brown but these babies, these are jewels that visited ME today! Mom, eat your heart out! LOL! You can clearly see the pair on the feeder but if you look closely, you can see a third perched in the tree in the upper right corner. Now I have to make sure I have food out every day to see if they come back! It's been a very, very long time since I've seen any of these so I'm very excited that they came to brighten my day today!

On a different note, it rained a little bit last night and by the time I got to my book club meeting, there was a HUGE rainbow and partial double in the sky! It was so bright and the widest rainbow I'd ever seen... and no camera with me. boohooo

I did have an art play date with Fran yesterday. We talked so much I didn't get near as much done as I'd like to have but who cares... when we are together, it doesn't matter what we are doing!

Oh my gosh Angie! I have never seen such gorgeous birds in Phoenix... ever! I had no idea there were such birds in this region!
Thanks for the delightful surprise pics!
Now you have got to paint one of them!
