7 Quail Eggs and Counting!


Mrs. Quail perservered through the spring snow storm we had for the last 3-4 days.  The high winds knocked out the power to our neighborhood for almost 24 hours ... and the cold temperatures and snow ...

Today spring came back to us!  I enjoyed sitting out in the backyard all afternoon doing detail work on my Zen Moment painting.  It is all done and I signed it. 

Two of my bunnies (Pixie and Pepe) enjoyed the backyard with me.  Pixie is madly in love with Pepe.  Here she is grooming the spots on his back!

Quail live all over the hills here but I've never seen a nest.

Finding those quail eggs is so amaing - I would be thrilled. Hope you get to see them hatch!
Your Zen painting puts me right in the zone. The colors are so harmonious and relaxing, and the water flow is lovely.
