visit my garden
frequently and the other day was no exception. My latest visitor can be seen in the image atop this entry as well as in the ones directly below.
Upon my seeing this creature, I thought of some lines from a poem by Eleanor Farjeon which go like this, “A new day. A blue jay. A new beginning...."
You may recognize her name as she wrote the hymn, "Morning Has Broken,"
which is usually associated with Cat Stevens whose recording of it popularized the song.
This bird type, which sometimes gets a bad rap, has influenced me from an early age when I drew (albeit not very well) the creature's picture.
A copy of my work can be seen here in the next image.
Blue jays are featured in the last volume of my three volume book series, Words In Our Beak
, and since birding has grown more popular during the coronavirus
, these books are great to have on hand for those who can't go out and about.
On another note which is one related to the symbolism and meaning of certain birds, "Jays mate for life, giving them the symbolism and meaning of faithfulness and accord."
Because of this undisputed fact re their faithfulness, I have had a couple of my images of Blue Jays rendered on to cards (by Fine Art America
They can be seen in the images below and either one makes a perfect Valentine's Day card for the one near and dear to you.
By the way, FAA can also render the images on to an array of surfaces; including acrylic...
...special art paper...
...as well as wood...
... for varying sizes of wall art.
Moreover they also offer framed images of my collection.
Additionally, an array of photographs of this bird type along with informative narratives are featured within my book series, Words In Our Beak...
...these books also make a great gift for Valentine's Day (or any day for that matter).
And since Jays mate for life, "giving them the symbolism and meaning of faithfulness and accord," why not let them inspire you to do something extra nice for your true love? But just a quick reminder, Valentine's Day is less than one month away, so if you would like to get or your true love items mentioned in this post please act quickly to avoid delays caused by shipping.
