I value my garden more for being full of blackbirds than of cherries, and very frankly give them fruit for their songs.
- Joseph Addison
An entry and sketch in my Daily Garden Journal
To me, the garden is a doorway to other worlds; one of them, of course, is the world of birds. The garden is their dinner table, bursting with bugs and worms and succulent berries. This is one of my feeding tables and the squabbles are hilarious to watch, with the Finches normally winning as they are quite feisty little characters.
