Outdoor Rednesday & Saving the Birdy




Outdoor bird nest class yesterday.
Gorgeous day for it.
After we did our messy nests,
we went inside to add the 'fluff'.
Here is one that fit in with our red theme today.
Cute idea, huh?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Helping the birdy.

Thud! My sweet fella heard it hit the window.
Looked out. Cat heading for it!
He, (my sweet fella, not the cat,) tapped
on the window and hollered to make the cat run away.
Then he found the little birdy on the ground.
Stunned.
He gently picked him up, gave him water, and a safe place to rest.
Kept giving him water, and watching (to keep him safe)
while he got back to feeling good enough to fly away.
Cute huh?
And so is my sweet fella....

Who then sat down in this 'new' chair.......

(which is going to the shop tomorrow)....
and looked at our new rose.


That is it for today.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
Blessings,
Barbara jean

Please go visit our hostesses for Rednesday,
and Outdoor Wednesday.

Hi Barbara Jean...This is my first visit to your blog. Your Rednesday post is great and I especially like the red yard chair. Those are the MOST comfy chairs in the world. I’m always looking at them when I go to the thrift / antique mall and wishing I had one here.

Hugs,
Genie

What a lucky birdie!! Love that red chair-- I've seen some new retro ones but they aren't heavy duty like the old ones used to be.

Romeo said...

Hi Barb, Your group looks great, I guess I am more than happy with these beautiful creasiones own. The history of the bird is very sweet!, I see an analogy with what Jesus does with us, cares for us as a bird and when we are hurt heals us, home supplies, care of all kinds, and gives us to drink water of life! very beautiful gesture of pure love. Rose Marie greetings

Love the red lawn chair, I have one, too, but no way am I selling it! That will be a real treasure for someone. I know the hardest part of being a dealer, which I was in my past life, sometimes is parting with the merchandise. Good that birdy recovered. Happy Rednesday!

SueLovesCherries said...

Aw, can't you send the chair to my house instead of the shop? LOL!

The bird looks like a Junco. I hope it's okay.

Looks like you were all having fun at your class Barbara Jean! And doesn't hubby look like the king of the castle in that lovely red chair.
Happy REDnesday to you.

Love the birdy story Barb! We seem to be doing that here as well. Last summer - we had a cardinal that lived in a pet carrier in our BEDROOM for over a week before it was able to fly again!

A great Red post today! I have birds hit the windows all day long! My sil tells me to stop keeping them so clean, but the poor birdies...they just keep flying into them!
