This stork visited my cottage by the St. John's River and I had a chance to paint him while he/she posed. (It was a long pose for a bird.) I was so happy that my art materials were close by and ready to be used when I realized the stork had landed by the raised bed gardens.
It is a good thing I have put away my childish ideas about storks bringing newborn babies to your doorstep. If storks really brought babies we wouldn't be prepared anymore. Our sons are grown and we are empty nesters now. My current babies are my gardens (growing vegetables, fruit and flowers), my artwork, and volunteering.
