I’ve been wondering if Spring didn’t get the memo and that’s why warmer, sunnier weather isn’t anywhere in sight. It’s not that I don’t like the Winter — truly enjoy snuggling with my family in front of the fire — but lately, I have been hoping that Spring will arrive any day now.

Last night, it snowed – again. So to brighten up the gloomy day, my husband brought me home some flowers, which immediately put me in the “springtime” frame of mind. As I sat at the coloring table with my son, staring at the cheery bouquet, an idea started to form in my mind.

Trim the excess pipe cleaner, leaving enough to poke out for the top beak. Cut a small piece and insert into the flower for the lower beak.
