Digital Dozen - In my Garden - Peacocks

Here we are with day five of the Digital Dozen 'In my Garden' week and I've used a little bit of creative licence with this one.  Clearly my nails are peacock themed. Do I have a peacock in my back yard? Well technically no, but I am going to use this post to bring attention to the plight of the Canberra peacocks who are inhabiting the backyards of my fellow Canberreans.

You see, some suburbs in Canberra have a feral peacock problem. Seriously!  Apparently the peacock population has grown so much since then first one wandered into someones garden in 2003, that in The ACT Governments Management plan that was recently out for consultation, they are planning to trap and relocate the peacocks, and those peacocks that can't be re-homed would be put down.  There was a fair bit of news coverage about it, talking to people who like the peacocks around and those that are finding them a nuisance. 

So in honour of those Canberreans that do have these majestic birds in their backyards, here are my peacock themed nails. I did a combination of water decals and stamping.

Can you imaging having these gorgeous animals on your side fence, or on your roof doing fancy mating dances.
