Day 11 of 21: Garden guardian


At this very moment, I am staring at a mynah bird nest about 4 ft from me, just outside my window. As I sit and write this, a pair is setting up home, happily gurgling, screeching, warbling, and making all kinds of kooky noises. I thought about dismantling the nest but I'm afraid I'll suffer the karmic consequences! Although I now know I have to tolerate their incessant racket, I can't complain. They will have to tolerate my repeated playing of James Blunt's newest CD long into the night! I figure we're even.

This is my entry for the International Moleskine Exchange with my group (Moly_x_9). I'm including the cover of Stephanie Sicore's moleskine cuz I think it's just FAB! This one is off to Laura (Laurelines) tomorrow. Oh, if you want a better scan of my drawing, you can check it out here.

This is gorgeous and clean, Joan. Love the colors....daisy, lilies, hydrangeas...which one are you?

Joan Y said...

Well, I do love daisies but I think in this drawing, the hydrangeas represent me the best. Bright and blue at the same time! LOL.

Simply beautiful!

Beautiful spread - I'd be tempted to keep this book if it came my way! And thanks for sharing Stephanie's cover - how on earth did she do that? It's lovely.

Kate said...

I'd be tempted to keep it, too!

You've really outdone yourself here -- I think this format really suits you.

Joan, I don't know if you read our group blog, but I'm so worried, because I haven't received the book yet. Can you let me know when you sent it?
