Yet another bird with a flower parasol. I'd name this one, but I haven't quite decided what kind of flower she is holding yet... These pictures aren't the greatest...somehow or other I didn't realize it was such a gray day when I was taking them. She's actually a lovely little pale blue and not the greyish color she appears in the pictures. *sigh* I'll have to try for some more pictures on a sunnier day.
So I have one last little parasol bird to finish up--a white one this time--and then I'll be taking a bird break for a little bit--I have a marionette I need to work on!
You see Pookie is very into the "Lonely Goatherd" scene in The Sound of Music and so I thought she might like seeing a real marionette. I've slowly started working on one and yes do I mean slowly...I started several days ago now and I still only have a head! Someday I'd love to have a ton of marionettes for the girls and a real nice puppet theatre (I'm dreaming of changing scenery, curtains, props, and lighting)...but for now, well just one marionette...if I start working a little faster.

I vote for Aster or Forget-Me-Not! But I'm sure the perfect flower name will come to you. And marionettes?! oh my! i'm sure they will be wonderful (now i will have the yodely song in my head for the rest of the day, not an entirely bad thing).
