"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

An Invitation To Dine

You know how it is. It all starts innocently enough - a quiet evening dining alone. When suddenly a neighbor drops by ... and another. Pretty soon the whole darned neighborhood drops in and it's 'Paaar-tay!' Everyone's having such a good time ...


... until that guy from down the street - that one nobody can figure - shows up, and suddenly things have changed. Aaaawk -ward!


"Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new." - Brian Tracy.

Bird Brains. Oy.

Wonderful, Goatmother! I don't remember much from my ornithology class from 1983, but was that a Goldfinch? BTW - is Marigold growing a beard yet? LOL

Wow, I have never seen so many hummingbirds together! Very cool!

Claire the Shepherdess said...

Poor lil' goldfinch...just lookin' for some love. Those hummers have a clique going, he might as well forget it!

Haroo, Marigold! I answered your question on my blog!

That was awesome! I haven't seen a hummingbird in I don't know how long! I had a feeder up last summer, but only ants, no birds.

That is amazing! I've never seen so many hummingbirds in one place. I'm also impressed that your GoatMother lets you in the house to take photos! :)
