Getting the beautiful blues

"Bluebird! 5 x 7 watercolor, 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico cold press paper
A new visitor showed up in our yard last week, and again, over the weekend we caught glimpses. The new week brought gloomy weather and news outside to where you can get the blues.
But then the visitor showed up again, bringing beautiful blues into our lives.
We're not serious birders, but have have always watched, especially those who are regular visitors to our feeder and birdbaths.
So when this visitor showed up, it brought a splash of color to the neighborhood and excitement to our moods.
Just what the doctor ordered to remind us in these times of the beauty of all life. There's an old saying that fits for someone you're glad to see, someone you haven't seen before: "You're a sight for sore eyes."
We're hoping that he's a new immigrant, settling down in the area with a family...we're getting the beautiful blues...today's watercolor.
