I bought these cherries, raspberries and brambles as a tasty treat for the birds to help them through this cold winter, and the oranges as a small helping of vitimin C for myself but, apart from the cherries, they were largley shunned by our ungrateful local egg-laying avians!
"Soft Fruit", acrylics on paper, 43x59cm.
The exception, however, was this one hen blackbird which devoured all of the cherries to itself.
Now, instead of buying out-of-date cherry punnets at 29p I am having to fork out in-date punnets at £2 a throw.
But I do know she appreciates it and that makes me happy!
