March Favourites...

This month's header is a photo of a wren taken in St. Catherine's Park last April.

And some favourite cards from March:

I like this one because my mother called me after Sabrina in Milton's poem "Comus". So this was probably the first piece of poetry that I learned by heart. And I have a lovely little S-shaped enamel mermaid pin that was my grandmother's.

Sabrina fair,
    Listen where thou art sitting
  Under the glassy, cool, translucent wave,
    In twisted braids of lilies knitting
  The loose train of thy amber-dropping hair:

I feel this bird looks as if he has seen something which has astonished him - so I am thinking of adding a snail or something in the bottom right corner.


  1. These are lovely . . . especially that mermaid!

  2. Sabrina the mermaid - how lovely to be named for such a beautiful creature. And the card is a beauty too. All of them are! (BTW - I was named after a rug store, nothing to do with the romance of France. Sometimes I wish my mother hadn't told me that.)
