Bluebird in Bloom

Henry David Thoreau said “The bluebird carries the sky on his back.” I thought that was a pretty way to look at it. (Forget that my sky is corn husk colored.) This particular bluebird carries flowers on his back, including some flowers from the UK. I think he also has delphinium, cornflower, and dyed spider mum on his back.

This picture is made of: corn husk, maple, cotton, banana peel, cornflower, some sort of flower from the UK, spider mum and mica.
