Another of Uncle Henry's works - he always signed his paintings with a pictogram of a straw boater

The Rhodocrosite Bird

Someone gave me a Rhodocrosite crystal egg and I wondered what would hatch from it

Each year the bees work their magic‚ the seeds self-set and the following spring there's always something new to discover
