Jane and Zinnia Sitting in a Tree...

Benary's Giant Wine Zinnia

My baby sister kisses zinnias. She claims they kiss her back. 
I might just have to find out for myself.

How to Make a Trellis: Part II

Western Bluebird
Now a trellis, any trellis, serves well as a natural hangout for many of your local non-human friends, especially those with feathers.

These little fluffy visitors inspired me to finish off the top of the trellis with a flock of mine own. On each of the eight uprights (three at both ends, two in the middle) there now perches a handmade ceramic bird of a no-name little brown jobbie-ish type (aka LBJ or LBB).

Most people don't notice this small flock. In fact, most people don't even notice that there are dinner ingredients within arm's reach. And, for me, that's a very good thing.
