Thank You, Dad

My father would be so pleased, as he loved birds dearly. I like to think he was with me during this episode, seeing how his vase and plants are helping his bird friends. Or maybe he was part of the hummers. Perhaps he directed me to put it there for them. I don't know but I love that they are using his old plant decoration.
Not long before he died, my dad was luring birds into his assisted living room by laying trails of birdseed on the carpet and hiding peanuts around various wall sculptures. He would leave his balcony door open for them. The facility put a stop to this as it was "not hygienic." But given that I found peanuts around the eagle wall hanging and bird poop all over the sculpture, he definitely had birds roosting and feeding in his room!
So, thanks dad, for all the bird love, from here and there and beyond.
