sing merry birds!

as i sit reading e-mails and checking out all of your blogs, i can hear birds happily chirping in the back yard. they are gathered around the two thistle seed feeders we have hanging off the fence. two hybrid honeysuckle vines are growing up the lattice behind the feeders so the little birds have such a colorful backdrop for their dining pleasure. it is such a joy to have such a good bird presence in a suburban neighborhood.

the above mixed media collage is titled "sing, merry birds" and can be seen in my etsy shop.

i'm off to fill the bird feeders and stretch my legs with dear presley!

peace, love, joy!

Every time I call my boss at his office, I can hear birds "chirping". I think it is a program on his computer, but, it is truly comforting.

i didn't realize how much i missed chirping until hearing it at 4:30am. you'd think that'd make me a bit cranky, but it was comforting. in the last month, i've been very diligent in keeping my bird feeders full, to keep the little guys around!

Sounds like you are almost a neighbor. I saw your comment on my blog today and wondered whereabouts you might live and discovered Englewood. A place that was tiny or teeny when we moved to Brookville in 1962. Brookville was "the" big place to be in them days and Englewood, hard to believe now, was route 40 through town and across the dam and that was it. Before K-mart.
