Chiggy decided Wearing of the Green was in order. He usually has to get in on some form of holiday action! Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Hi Kelly ...That's adorable!!Your artwork is wonderful and Chiggy makes a great subject to bounce holidays off from.lol
I just got in from a walk,and while I was out I saw a Chickadee drinking sap tripping from a Maple tree branch...it was so cute.
It is a gorgeous day temps 60 degrees and we are melting fast..yeah!!!!

Chiggie as a St. Patrick's Day icon? I love it!

But the Osprey has first dibs; it's the tradition that they arrive at their summer homes in the north on St. Patrick's Day.

Kelly said...

Kah Wai...thank you!

Mona...they are so sweet. It was warm today so I had my window open, and it was wonderful to here their cheerful calls drifting in through the window.

Robert...hadn't thought of that, but you're right...3 down...how many to go? Maybe that will be a theme this year!! :-) Thanks!

Timaree...haha...I guess they are finding their nesting material already. Must be a fun sight...

Lois...Thank you! :-)

Grammie...thank you! It's marvelously warm here today too!! Over 60...window is open...it's the first day. I love it!!

Roy....cool!!! I didn't know that. You should do a post on that... thank you!

Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day... I have some Irish blood in me --and need to put on my green so that George won't pinch me... ha ha

Wow - beautiful. Happy green day.

What a sweetie!

Chiggy wears the green quite well!

That was a good St. Patrick's Day card for all of us. :)

Unfortunately, over here near a certain university campus, all we had was a drunk student (from a neighbor's party) on our front porch trying to get in between taking naps on the concrete while waited for the police to arrive. Ah, yes, that green beer and university students....

Chiggy is perfect, Kelly...although I missed commenting on St Patrick's Day!
It's been lots of yard work for me!

BirdingMaine said...

Absolutely beautiful! I love it!

Katie said...

Kerri said...

Tammie said...

this is so sweet! I can see your love of birds in your art.

Kelly said...

...thanks everyone! I love how his expression turned out also...almost impish--like a good little St. Patrick's Day chickadee should be! I've been away for a week...to Florida. I saw so many beautiful birds...can't wait to start posting photos and painting them!
