CREATIVE TUESDAY -- DECEMBER

The theme this session is "DECEMBER".  We don't get much December weather down here.  Mostly we get a couple of days of rain followed by temps in the 60's throughout December, January and February.  Sometimes a 'cold', windy rainstorm sets us all to complaining.  We are so spoiled.  But right now we are anticipating some rain next week and we are cheering.  It feels like we have had summer since last March.   Even so, when the day is sunny and dry, the nights are cold and our birds, especially the migrating ones, are glad for some extra seed.


DECEMBER
Hungry birds, a bare-branched sight
On snow-bright days. Collecting sun
And snatching seed ‘gainst frost-cold night.
December has begun.

Chris, this is so pretty. Your sketchy style lend it self well to the fragilty and littleness of these birds against that marvelous dry brush backdrop. Wonderful picture and a different take on the theme. you never know how one will interpret it. This is just lovely. Thank you for taking the time to creat it for us all to see. :)

That is definitely how our trees look right now...except a little battered and bruised from last years ice storm! Beautiful picture, Chris!

There are still a few trees around that have autumn leaves, but a lot are beginning to look like that. Nice picture. I love snow, so I would not want to live where it never happens, but sympathise with Kaybee, who often gets too much. As our gran used to say, 'Enough is as good as a feast.'

Chris, such a gorgeous drawing which reminds me just how fragile their lives are in winter.

There is a delicacy and lightness in this drawing that I love. I can hear the twittering and feel the cooler air. I enjoyed the poem too!
