It's a gorgeous day today so I am gardening.
I have fed the birds with rice, lard, birdseed and bread.
Everyone is having a feast to celebrate Spring. Did you know that some religions believe that to feed the birds is the same as praying and having a direct line to God. I'd much rather feed the birds than attend church, birds don't require you to read the bible.
Birds are great at eating unwanted bugs in your garden so you don't have to put pesticides on your plants. They are essential for pollinating fejoia's.
Today my territorial orange beeked blackbird ( Hano) hopped close to my feet as I planted out some cuttings that I had propogated during the winter. Propoagating your own plants is creative, it saves you money and makes you feel like you are a mother (hen).
I took some photo's of some of my spring flowers and manipulated them in Photoshop.
I invented some Haiku to go with them and will post on this blog.
I'll include latest shots of the wood pigeon (kereru) duo who always visit my garden for willow buds this time of the year.
What you are doing today for yourself creatively? I'd love hear
