I was looking at avocado one day and thought I will be not able to come out with an idea for this page. Checked Google for inspirations and not much there at all. The difficulty is avocado so soft and the design needs to be super simple. Of course, we can’t able to use very mushy fruit but it works when avocado good to eat because of the garnish simplicity. If we are able to attach a wedge of avocado to glass we can able to make this design.

      I thought it will be a rooster, remember I am originally from Russia and this bird is very popular there for decor. I am sure roosters popular in Mexico too. So at first, it was a rooster! When I show my avocado bird decor to my husband, he said it is not a rooster, it is a parrot Cockatoo looks by his vision. Oh, I agree now!
