|Robins and a blue tit by Robyn|
I have a folder on my computer and inside it are all the scans of the postcards I've received over the last twelve months from A Postcard from my Walk project. It's a mini gallery - as this blog is - of all the postcards from this wonderful project which I have enjoyed so much - even if I've been a little late with my own postcards from time to time!
This image has just joined them and, if my reckoning is correct, this makes it the last card that I'm due to receive from this project.
How appropriate then that that my last card should be Robins by Robyn!
She tells me that her exercise during winter is climbing up her garden steps in Castiglion Fiorentino to fill the bird feeders which apparently the local cats think is the new locale of a brand new restaurant for them. It's so tricky getting bird feeders located where you get at them easily but the cats can't!
It must be even trickier now that the garden in Castiglion Fiorentino has had snow and expeditions by manly blokes are required to bring home the bird seed!
Robyn has sketched her birds in fluid acrylic - which surprised me as I initially thought it was watercolour. I'm still trying to work out how she managed the splendid spattered background without getting it all over the birds too!
Thank you so much for my Italian birdies which will always remind me of Robin!
