Friendly Bird

I don't look out my office window over an ocean, mountain range, or a winding river, but I have a view of something as precious on my window sill. God must have created the peacock (and peahen) as his art class doctoral thesis. These extremely social birds love to hang around people, look in mirrors, and show their pride. Sound familiar?

The other day Kathy Miller sold a guest fifty of the cock's discarded feathers for her living room bouquet. Not may bird's get that honor. As the single geranium awaits the flowers of summer in the window box, it makes the reward of winter's endurance well worth the price.

We are planting Begnoias in the quilt garden today, the red, white, and blue bunting adorns The Inn at Amish Acres. Plain and Fancy is open for its 26th season and State Fair opens May 29th on The Round Barn Theatre stage. WFRN's  two day Friend Fest filled with Christian Music is just around the corner on June 29th and 30th. This bird's social calendar is about to be filled for the year; so much for time to gaze through the window!

We ate there a few weeks ago and had the pleasure of this lovely birds company in our window, looks like the same flower box when we were there. Nice!
