Saturday, August 4

Right outside my window . . .

I'd like to say I planned this when I planted sunflowers in the pots right outside my window, but I didn't. Still, here they are every day, just feet from where I work. Goldfinches feeding on the seeds offered by tired sunflower blooms! It's the reason I won't cut the drying flowers back until the birds are finished.

Now, if I could get them to do this, I'd really have a photo! A woman from Louisiana, who had been studying the hummingbirds that came to her feeder daily, put the bowl of sugar water in her hands. How awesome this must have been!

So happy that e.b.'s mail art arrived yesterday. I didn't want to post it here and ruin the surprise! How fun is this, and won't the electric company be delighted when they see how my bill is returned this month!

  3. I love the fact you don't cut the blooms until the finches are done with them! We do the same thing. Those Goldens love their sunflower seeds and thistle. I would love to try the hummingbird sugar hands, but our hummers are such nasty little beasties, I would be afraid they would peck me!
