Judy had a really fun theme this week at inspiration avenue- "What's your favorite month". I immediately said April, because I LOVE Spring, when the garden is bursting with new life and it's also my birth month. I usually get a gift from my garden- each year my roses bloom just in time for my birthday......
With the return of the flowers, comes the return of the hummingbirds- I could watch these little beauties ALL day long! I love when they surprise me working in the garden, I'll ear the sound of their wings, look up; and there one is- right beside me!
So, for my entry this week at IA, I created a painting in an effort to encompass it all.....the hummers, roses, infinity and of course a muse for the garden....
Here is "Infinite Spring"
Here is something I found on Hummers that I thought was neat:
The hummingbird symbolizes many different concepts. Because of its
speed, the hummingbird is known as a messenger and stopper of time. It
is also a symbol of love, joy, and beauty. The hummingbird is also able
to fly backwards, teaching us that we can look back on our past. But,
this bird also teaches that we must not dwell on our past; we need to
move forward. When the hummingbird hovers over flowers while drinking
nectar, we learn that we should savour each moment, and appreciate the
things we love.
Very fitting symbol for the theme....
Be sure to hop over to Inspiration Avenue to see what everyone else created for the theme- I'm always amazed at the variety we get each week!
