Atop this entry is a copy of a Mutts
cartoon created by Patrick McDonnell
. It was initially posted in celebration of the 2018 Winter Solstice
and I thought of the sentiment expressed by Mooch during the nor'easter
which occured in NYC
this past Monday (2-1-2021).
The expression on his face was so forlorn (as evidenced in the following sequence of photographs)...
...I thought of this jay when I recalled having seen the Mutt's 2018 solstice cartoon, and I wondered if perhaps that jay was wondering if it was too late to fly south.
I'm teasing by saying this for jay are not migratory birds and they have visited my garden year round in bygone years.
For your information, my garden is the setting for my three volume hardcoverbook series, Words In Our Beak (WIOB).
The goal of these books is to open readers to a simple understanding of the winged world and their environment. Set in a rooftop urban garden (mine) in New York City, my story is told in the voice of Cam, a female cardinal, who visits it. Words In Our Beak is directed to children and adults who are curious about birds, and want to learn about them from a unique perspective. These make a great gift to give to love birds who love birds on Valentine's Day.
Moreover, I have had a couple of my images of Blue Jays rendered on to cards by FAA (AKA 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.
Additionaly FAA can also offer framed images of my collection.
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.
