For The Birds


The Perennials have been slower to return this
year, mostly because we've had more than our fair share of frosts and freezes these early Spring days.
Better late than never.
 

The Goldfinches will soon be devouring the seeds of this Tickseed.
It makes happy little birds



 
“Sometimes goldfinches one by one will drop
From low hung branches; little space they stop;
But sip, and twitter, and their feathers sleek;
Then off at once, as in a wanton freak:
Or perhaps, to show their black, and golden wings,
Pausing upon their yellow flutterings.
Were I in such a place, I sure should pray
That nought less sweet, might call my thoughts away.”
 
John Keats

Such a bright and cheer-filled garden - no wonder the birds
take joy in visiting it and the feeding stations.

Beautiful garden! Would you please tell me the purple flowering plants in photos 3-5? Is the fencing to keep hungry deer away? I think I need to borrow this idea as the bed looks lovely, while still being protected!

You are feeding a lot of birds. It is fun to see them. My one pair is better than none.
