The bluebird’s house was covered with snow here in the Deep South and he was none too happy! Last summer, he settled down here thinking it would be temperate and sunny all year through, but it just wasn’t so. “Hey, I demand a refund!” the disgruntled fellow snapped to whoever was willing to listen.

(Postscript: this image is dedicated to Jesika who inspired me to try my hand at relocation! Thanks, Jesika; this is way too much fun! Hope you don’t mind my borrowing your technique).
