Quote of the Day: Oliver Herford

December 12th, 2010

I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.

– Oliver Herford, I Heard a Bird Sing


We put out a bird feeder in the winter, we really enjoy watching the birds come. We’ve learned to identify all the different ones that come to our feeder. It sure helps get through those long dark winter months. I also notice more birds in the garden throughout the summer when we feed during the winter months.

Do you feed the birds around your gardens?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
