Seeds for the BIrdies


Some people feed wild birds but only in the winter months.

In summer, there's plenty for birds to eat out in the wild, they say.


Well, birds can find seeds in their feeders in our back yard in both summer and winter!  

Boy, they eat a ton of wild bird seed mixed with sunflower seeds.

The feeder could easily be filled on a daily basis but it's actually filled just a couple of times a week.

Then, it's empty before one knows it.

Some of the seeds fall on the ground and an army of squirrels are quick to clean them up. 

 
Early morning, it's pleasing to hear the choruses of bird sounds.

The birdies can come to our house for seeds whenever they wish.



DO YOU EVER FEED THE WILD BIRDS?

Angel Boy


Somewhere along the way of life,  a planter with a little angel boy perched on the side came home with me.


As recalled, he was a thrift store purchase.


The planter has been quite empty for years.




Always the thought of filling it with flowers crossed my mind.


I even thought about flower-loving friends who might be able to help me fill it.



Finally, this past  July 4th weekend, some artificial flowers were snipped and "planted" near angel boy.

The result was very satisfying. 




Plus, I didn't have to ask anyone to help me fill the planter.


It's always good to be independent.


WHEN YOU SEE THIS PLANTER, WHAT GOES THROUGH YOUR MIND?

Very Changed July 4


Wow. Thanks to wretched COVID19, this is a very changed July 4th.

A wonderful parade that brought immense joy to me as a child and as an adult, has been canceled.

The wondrous display of fireworks has been called off.

Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, has canceled all concerts on the sprawling green lawns under the stars.

Everything has changed. 

Everything has been silenced because of COVID19.

But we can feel love within our hearts.  

We can celebrate quietly and know that better days are coming.

Keep safe. Wear masks.  Sanitize your hands.

God bless each of you this Fourth of July and all the days that follow.

Know that God is with us. 

WHAT ARE YOU DOING THIS HOLIDAY?
