Icarus

She took the leap and built her wings on the way down. Love this quote. A couple of feathers that we found at Auburn Botanical garden. They are from Cape Barren Geese.The feathers that are in the middle of their back have markings on them that look like hearts.

    How very very lovely, feathers and quote. I have two feathers in a dish of gum tree bark, seed pods, cones etc.ect. from Australia, one a yellow crest feather from a white cockatoo and a blue one from a blue kingfisher (I think) gathering dust , which I swish out just occasionally, but I will never throw them away!!:o)

    Quote strikes a chord and the image is lovely. Reminds me of a beautiful children's book I read the other day that has just come out called Farther. Very touching - you would love it.
