. Bubina's Brood

Friends -

Today, on this beautiful spring morning, we are celebrating my Mom's birthday by gathering at her house for a feast. Mom has always been fond of the California quail, which at one time were quite prolific in Saratoga. Although the expansion of suburbia has reduced their habitat, you can still hear their calls on a crisp spring morning, and my Mom still delights in seeing the little quail families when they make their way to her front yard. So, I thought that this representation of my Mom and her four kids would be an appropriate Birthday Gift.

By the way, in case you are wondering, 'Bubina' is a nickname that we have had for decades.... it's origin remains a mystery to me.

Enjoy this wonderful weekend!
