  12. When can I move in? LOL! What a wonderful, magical bird paradise you have created. It's like a luxury resort for our feathered friends. No wonder you have so many visitors - they must think they are in heaven.

    I loved the pretty line of goldfinches, standing like puffy, gold blossoms on a branch. Thank you so much for sharing your garden with us.

  14. I love your back yard, but I want to hang out there, too, so pretty soon you'll have a back yard full of bloggers, with no room for the birds!
    Beautiful post, Eileen.

  28. Fantastic to see so many goldfinches together. They have not arrived here. The cardinal is teasing us by flying past and not stopping. We do have lots of woodpeckers and I hear them in the woods.
