Golden, Too

Hurray!! They're here and it's about time! It took eight loooong & painful days (for me) for the goldfinches to discover their brand spankin' new sock feeder here at my corner of Cocktail Corner. Now they're coming in droves! Hope I haven't stolen any of Mental Mama's goldfinch friends, after all, she's the one who inspired me to go get the feeder in the first place. Her back yard is full of goldies and I've never had even a single one in my yard, though there are numerous feeders. Picky eaters!
I love this time of year with all the spring bloomage.
Daff's are one of my favorite.

This one got herself a tad dirty - I wonder how she managed that?

Can't remember the name* of this bush....
*winetipper just reminded me - it's an andromeda bush.

Forsythia - there isn't anything prettier. Or yellower.




  1. Your shrub looks like it might be Andromeda, yes?

  2. Um, that is one of my goldfinches. Please send him along his merry little way.

  3. Lovely bird feeder. I've never seen one like that. I wish we had beautiful gold birds like that here.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a thought. It's appreciated! xoabb
