Feathered friends sharing apple crumble

Oh Chris – I loved the 30 Day Challenge on the gardening buddies – our feathered friends who help us in the garden. Not only do they help us in the garden, but entertain us andΒ join in our delight! Β I want to share my little friends with you. We were all enjoying an apple crumble together. The wagtail was first – I could not believe it! Then came the Cape Sparrow and the cheeky Cape Weaver. It was such a special moment!

I love the birds in my garden!!

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Diana beat me to it … but I think I should confirm here that Barbie is a ” bird whisperer”. I’ve never seen anything like it, they just gravitate towards her.

That is adorable. I used to have doves I could hand feed, but they are no longer here thanks to the hawks. But the finches and sparrows stay too far away.

Amazing! I don’t understand how you get birds to come so close to you. Even the beggar sparrows that I see at the restaurant areas of zoos and other outdoor public spaces don’t come that close to people.

I think you should keep the feather duster handy in case they get too assertive and go for the crumble right out of the pan. πŸ™‚

Haahaa!! I like that!! I don’t know – I guess they see that I’m connected to my chickens so they see no fear. I pick up my chickens and hug and kiss them and they follow me like dogs. So the other birds follow.
The feather duster is never far behind πŸ™‚
