Outside: Bluebirds, the Treasury, & the Voter

It's been a wee bit warmer recently, and the pair of Eastern Bluebirds have been establishing their territory in the backyard. Every once in a great while the male will let me stand really far away and take a photo... just every once in a while.









This is a shot of eastern bluebird eggs in a nest in the nest box (from last year). It's called "nest" and is available at my "sarahknight" shop on etsy

"nest" is also featured in this wonderful treasury of bluebirds & butterflies by Starzyia
I invite you to go check it out : )



My "say's phoebe" print is also featured in this lovely treasury "Cloud Watching" by Polestar



I invite you to go check it out : )


And, of course, I encourage you to go vote in this round of the etsy "voter." It's called "What's in Your Ideal Garden." And one of my pieces, "Happy Together" is in contention! So, yes, I'm asking, begging, pleading, & otherwise strongly encouraging you to go vote for my print!

When logged into your etsy account you can vote here:
