I don't usually use this many different colors on a background, but it's fun to get wild and crazy sometimes. I added the flower just because I thought it was pretty and reinforced the bits of purple in the background. The picture of the mockingbird is to remind me of just how sassy they can be. Recently, as we drove up to the house, we saw a squirrel running along the power line and a mockingbird was flying behind nipping at his butt. I've seen them dive at my poor old cat who was just minding her own business, but this is the first time I've ever seen one harass a squirrel. Maybe it got too close to her nest, although I would have thought it's too late in the year for her to be raising young. However, now that I think about it, it was just two weeks ago that I saw a mourning dove sitting on her nest in Missy's pear tree.
