Friday’s Flower Thought

Let's kick off today’s post, 'Friday's Flower Thought' with this quote from Betty Sue Flowers. “We have to be present, because our footprint on the world is so large.” Now that’s a big blanket of ‘green’ and ‘sustainability’ for a Friday morning but let's focus on that flower thought instead. This is a repeat message with a different twist; similar to an archived posting last January called 'Planting for the Birds'.

Just a quick heads-up; this Friday flower thought requires planning and planting come spring. While feeding suet and seed to the birds can attract many sightings, including some unwanted visitors like squirrels and bears, a natural way to entice and introduce birds to your landscape is through native plantings and housing. Plus there’s such beauty that comes from these plantings when you create a tasteful bird habitat. It sounds like a simple flower thought but planting for the birds is often overlooked.

Don't forget to ‘be present'. Birds come unannounced, ready to enhance a cloudy winter morning. Get ready for your incoming flights of various bird sightings with this simple Friday flower thought - plant for the birds.
