Feed me, feed me, feed me . . .

Webster always closes eyes when he's licking something particularly delicious.

Full house at the feeder. Go away...all the perches are taken!

I usually don't feed the birds after the weather gets nice but this year is an exception. I saw one lone goldfinch trying to find a seed in the empty feeder recently and immediately filled it up. I had almost a whole garbage can full of sunflower seeds left from the winter. I actually stopped all my feeding because the seeds were attracting mice. I got one in the house (two actually) and nothing distresses me more than knowing those creatures are running around inside. After I stopped feeding the birds, I had no more mouse problems.

I am hoping mice don't want to be inside in the warmer weather. After this can of seeds is gone, I will stop feeding my feathered friends. I hope they will stay anyway and I know they will. It is so wonderful to wake up each morning to their singing. The peepers (tree frogs) are quite loud too.

Thanks for stopping by the cottage for a visit. Stop again soon. ♥Rosemary

A rug on the floor, play toy nearby, and a pan to lick...Life is good for your Mr. Webster. He, too, is content in a cottage.

I think Webster is one lucky dog.

I'm glad you liked the "Cottages of Carmel" link. I can't decide if the homes or the gardens are the best part!

Take care

Awww, Webster, nom! And that's quite the bird action, I hope they stay in your yard regardless.

I have a problem with mice too, once they get in and find a source of food it is almost impossible to keep them out.

Love the puppy picture! He's so cute!
