Free Vintage Illustration for Cardmaking, Garden and Nature Journals or Scrapbook Page: Birds Exchanging News of Spring

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime.
Never make a negative decision in the low time.
Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods.
Wait. Be patient.
The storm will pass. The spring will come.
Robert H. Schuller

Antique illustration from the late 1800s showing a sparrow coming to the bullfinches' icy perch to exchange news of spring - will spring be early or late this year? Delicate and subtle sprigs of spring blossoms surround the borders of this image. A great whimsical graphic for greeting cards, garden or nature journals, collage, and scrapbooking projects.
