Feathered Friends and Sunflowers




Today I finished machine quiting a top quite fitting and appropriate while I watched the birds outside feasting on the sunflowers. Feathering the background reminds me of all of the fluttering going on with the finch amongst the 7 feeders. It seems there are more than usual. I always thought the expression "eating like a bird" meant that you didn't eat much at all, but it doesn't take them long to empty the feeders. If I were a bird, I think the warmer weather migrating south, would attract me more! Last October we were off in the Carribean. Ah, to have the option of having wings and fly there when we want to soak up the sun and drink exotic alcoholic fruit drinks!
