  1. I love birds - I have a mass of feeders all over my yard but have barely filled them the past couple of years as the neighbor lady likes stray cats and has about ten (no exaggeration.

    I started to feel like an accomplis to a crime when I would "lure" my pretty birds in with the feed and the cats would get them while they were pecking at the seed that fell to the ground.

  6. I love seeing photos of birds - and those are completely new to me - so different from the birds that come to our garden.

    I hope Hurricane Irene gives you a wide berth!

  7. Wish we had beautiful cardinals in our area--really enjoy your pix of them.

    I can only identify your plant as pretty-pretty--a luscious color!

  8. I always have trouble distinguishing the finches from the female cardinals! I bet the male cardinals don't have any trouble!

  9. Pretty! Mrs. Cardinal posed for you. They are so skittish and shy.

    Not only do squirrels dislike the safflower but the large greedy birds such as Grackles and Starlings won't eat it either.

  10. Beautiful. I've begun to recognize some bird calls around my yard this year.

  11. When I lived in Ohio I saw Cardinals every once in a while. I rarely see them here. Love the photos!

  14. May you, Mr. Diane, and all the beautiful birds, flowers, and small creatures make it through Irene with just a little rain.

    Are your books in a safe place?

  15. Your red fires me up. I've had an awful day and your red seems very soothing some how. Thankx

  16. Funny, now that you mention it I only see cardinals eating on the ground under my feeders. I wonder if they don't like feeders or just don't like mine. Great pictures!

  19. Very nice pictures. I like how there is at least a little bit of read in each one.

  21. I do love your red theme this week.

    The bird is so beautiful and the flower with no name :)

  22. I'm not sure but your flowers could be poppies. It's a little hard to tell if they have 4 petals or not but I think poppies have those little green thingies (technical botanical talk) in the middle. Stay safe from Irene!

  23. what wonderful pictures! i absolutely love them all!

  24. You are learning birds. Obviously only Kaye is familiar with plants but the red flowers are lovely. I didn't realize squirrels don't like safflower seeds. Wonder if deer like them - probably do. They eat everything.

  25. Nicely done. I like the red theme of the post.
