Artist's Description

Today has been interesting.
We had an injured seagull in our garden just after lunch, and although I am not too sure whether he/she will pull through, I had to capture him whilst I inspected his injuries.
We don’t have a rescue place for birds or the like near here, so either an animal like this goes to the vet for the inevitable, or if it is still lively and alert put it back in the environment it knows and pray!
I decided the best place for him /her was to go back to the sea and to release it.
My! As soon as it smelt the sea and the sand it was up and desperate to get out my cat cage. I opened up the cage, and it trotted out and never looked back till it got to the sea and bobbed off! It later rested on a rock, and I knew without a doubt, however nature takes it’s course with this lovely bird, it was the right decision. Couldn’t help the tear in my eye as I watched it going back to it’s natural environment.
I took a few images whilst there and started walking over the rocks and pebbles to get back to the dunes and just a couple of feet from where I released the seagull right at my feet, was an orange coloured stone shaped like a heart! Was this an omen?
I picked it up and brought it home. It’s special. It cost me nothing but it’s worth it’s weight in gold. I’ll treasure it and the story attached.
This made me think how nature has a way of touching my spirit every time. And so….this card was born!
