Going to seed . . .

Goldfinch hovering

This right here is why it’s sometimes okay to let weeds take over.  Sure they are prickly and non-native and all that jazz but oh the goldfinches love them!

For more beautiful birds to enjoy, go to Bird Photography Weekly.

PS.  Just found out that my step-mother, Babette Donaldson, is a published author. Go see! It’s pretty cool!

    I love seeing the birds eating the seeds. Very cool about your step-mother! The books look really cute!

    …weeds are good! I let lots of mine grow and the birds love them! Lovely photos of the happy goldfinch! Your step-mom’s tea series looks very cute! I would have loved it when I was a kid (I love it now!!).
