Well today is my day for the "Bird Tree" hop.
I must say that I have been watching the birds all Winter, same as a lot of yous. I feel bad for them in the cold and snow so have been feeding them regularly. I had more and different kinds this year than ever.
They fly in and out of out trees, all tring to get to get their share of Sunfower seeds. Sometimes I even see the larger birds pushing the little ones off the feeders purch, wanting all the seeds for themselves. So, I throw seeds on the ground for them. But, lately, I have heard chirping and singing in our Oak tree that was louder than before, I kept watching and seen the Wrens, Gold Finches, Robins, Bluebirds, and Cardinals all fly into this tree. Now they have been in there for awhile. Like they were having a meeting or something. So, I snuck up on them to take a picture....
Why, there are all dressed up and ready to go to the Nashville to the "Bluebird Cafe" to hear "Ryan Rooster Lee and the Outlaw Band"!!!
I hope I did not bore you with my story. When I first signed up for this hop, well, anyone who knows me, knows I got out my pencil and started to draw.
AND being close to Nashville, AND my son singing and playing the bass in the "Ryan Rooster Lee and the Outlaw Band" .
(What's a mother to do, lol)
Hay, look, someone else is hopping a ride to Nashville, lol
I also made myself another pincushion. I seen pictures of bird pincushions, and well, this is what I came up with....
I think this will work...
Then I made a Hummingbird Mug Rug:
Thank you so much Madame Samm and Lana for coming up with this hop and for all your hard work in putting it all together for us. We all do appreciate it.
Before I end, I also want to share another little story. See, my husband and I used to have a perminate site on Chincoteague Island, VA. We would go there as much as work would allow us in the summer months. Everytime we were there, we had a Seagull that was always be on our site. (Always hunting for scraps) We called him "R-55". Well, my husband made me this for my flower bed:
(Not exactly a Seagull, but I like him. He will always remind us of our good times there.)
Ok, now lets grab some coffee and fly out to see all the other beautiful creations these talented ladies made today:
