Autumn bird food

Cottoneasters are sensible plants
nothing flashy
nothing in them that stirs desire
but they are reliable
A source of food for migratory birds
who grace my garden in the seasons of growth,
and then have to leave me...which always breaks my heart,
for I love them dearly...their sweet songs and their flitting about,
sometimes gracing me with a nest or two
And I mostly mean the Robin,my favorite bird
I started out being a bird lover and watcher,
then realized I needed to invite them here...
thus began my gardening days
No regrets,
for I love when God comes and visits me there
And for this I am grateful to the animals and birds,
who taught me this
So go ahead feast on the seeds,berries and nuts
We both share in His bounty

  1. This is such a beautiful post; I too love birds and animals and delight in watching them feed on the fruits of nature. I have been enjoying seeing our beautiful birds, the tui and kereru, feeding on the bounties of spring.

  2. Thank you Marilyn..I will have to look up the tui and the kereru

  3. I have photos of them on my recent blog posts.

  4. How wonderful you have offerings for the migratory birds ... love it.


leave me a line of joy
