I HAVEN'T BEEN CRAFTING THIS WEEK

I've been making the most of the sunshine, which incidentally, has now had enough and disappeared.
Apart from some lovely papers, a few distress inks and a couple of MS punches, my work space is clear.
So, I thought I would show you my most favourite tree in my garden, which at this time of year, sprouts gorgeous yellow new growth at the tips of it's branches.
Together with the big tree next to it, it keeps the winter bird visitors stocked with food. They are both 'happy' trees.
My little garden also boasts a place for the summer birds (I do feed them here in the winter also, but it looks bright and cheery just now).

However, this morning the path looked like a gang of hooligans had been round as there was soil and chipped bark everywhere. Who did it? Mr & Mrs Blackie, our friendly and almost tame!! blackbirds. Mrs Blackie calls to me when there is no food and literally waits at my side 'til I put it out for her. It's so amazing and quite humbling. I love it.

Woo hoo! I received my fabulous hanging from you in celebration of WOYWW 2nd birthday. Beautiful piece of artwork I will treasure and thank you so much for making it. It will be on my blog tomorrow for all to share.
I too love and feed the blackbirds in my garden.. such characters.
Love Jo x ( JoZarty)

Our black birds usually nest in our garage most years, and don't they get cross if we want to pull the door down just a bit!! They spend loads of time swimming in the shallow end of the pond and the babies are so tame you have to be careful not to tread on them! When there's not the right food on the bird table they look in at us as if to say, 'where's breakfast?' ((Lyn))
