The last few weeks in the Aspen area have been the snowiest of the year, so it’s probably too soon to announce spring’s arrival with any certainty, but usually, April brings warmer weather, the first blooms of the year, greener grass, and lots and lots of birds. April’s calendar image was inspired by a tree in our backyard that holds a lovely little bird’s nest. Last year, we found the tiniest blue egg underneath, and although I’ve never actually seen any birds around it, I have visions of the little bird family that might be living there. This is what I hope they look like!
The ideas, images and ink for the month are:
ideas waking to a cacophony of bird songs outside my window
images one small bird high up in a tree singing spring’s arrival
ink new growth green
