A very special hummingbird gift from my late Godmother.

I received a lovely gift this week from my late Godmother’s children.      They had been going through some of her belongings when a little hummingbird brooch appeared.


As a child my Godmother/Aunt Joan, had been one of my favourite people.    Always happy and  relaxed she was a joy to be around.

Given that hummingbirds are only just becoming well known in the UK…signifying more exotic and warmer climes, I imagine she found this little brooch on one of her many travels abroad.


Many ancient peoples believed that hummingbirds were messengers between different worlds, symbolising eternity, continuity and infinity. 


I will cherish this little brooch and consider it a message from my Aunt Joan who is hopefully smiling broadly and enjoying a new and different world:)


On that note, I hope that everyone is holding up during the run up to Christmas.   It can all get a bit much…..however, today I will go to a carol singing concert given by the little children from  St. Mary’s School.    The same children I painted with a couple of months ago.
