Well it is the end of summer and seeds are ripening. I was removing some plants spilled into the walkways this morning and noticed, after I had been working for some time, a busy goldfinch nearby taking little notice of me. Usually they are so shy.
I decided to take a chance and go for the camera. Sure enough, when I returned, he was still there.
Not only do they provide food, but the flowers have there own distinct beauty at this time of year. In this case, Mr Goldfinch is being very selective.
"No deadheading please. We'll take care of the preliminaries for you," he seemed to say.
Well, I'm choosing to feed the birds and there will be
in this garden for a while.
