NOBODY TWEETED THAT THEY WANTED SUET, NOT PEPPERONI, on their pizza–and who would have guessed that a Whopper paled by comparison to a tiny grain of millet? Birdbrains, these feathered types are total birdbrains, I swear. :) Thanks, Andre Jordan, for channeling our avian companions. I’d stick around to chat a bit but I have to hurry to the local Farm & Feed to buy some proper fare for supper in 40-pound bags, or there may be a re-enactment of Hitchcock’s “The Birds.” (Shudder.)

I’M CRAZY ABOUT pineapple lilies, bulbs in the genus Eucomis. And though in my zone 5 garden, they aren’t hardy, I can’t imagine a growing..

dahlias galore, with ceramic artist frances palmer
SOME OF US plant a row or two of annuals for cutting, but Frances Palmer has taken the phrase “cutting garden” to the most delightful..
Andre’s doodles are just PURE AWESOME!! They always make me smile. Thx for posting them! I never would have known about his site otherwise.
Just found your site, a lot of great information. Especially love the doodles.Funny about the birds, picky eaters, you’d think they eat anything that was free!
Hi, Jacky. Glad you found us, me and Andre and the birds and frogs and such. Nice to “meet” you.
Awesome as usual, Andre. Margaret, we had goldfinches feeding on liatris seeds today!
Has Andre been in my garden?! This is exactly what my goldfinches are doing with the thistle seed I bought (from a different place than I usually get it). It’s expensive and I don’t think I can take it back just because the birds don’t like it. I sure do missing them hanging every which way from the thistle sock though, so I am going to break down and get another bag.
Hi, Elaine. Probably Andre peered through your fence, yes. He’s like that. :)
