The Bird Gardener

I'm so grateful for the trees that surround our home. I get to watch a variety of birds just by looking out of the french windows. A robin couple have become frequent visitors to the garden.  Their ever changing activities keep me entertained as I draw or keep accounts. Unlike the other birds this pair is wonderfully energetic, playful and a tad noisy. They feel like a old married couple. Squabbling, talking and pecking... I'm hooked to this birdie soap opera :)

We have beautiful weather today - 81 Degrees and very sunny. I have brought out my gardening tools, potting soil, seeds, bulbs and a bunch of very colorful pots ready for intensive planting today.  I hope I have better luck this year. Last year all of my seeds grew to about 6 inches and died :( 

So this year I'm thinking of enlisting this little birdie to take care of my plants. What do you think?
