Tall on my back porch

Sunflowers grow in clay pots

Ready to open.

Art Prescription:  So, the squirrels who frequent my “bird” feeder buried some sunflower seeds over winter into my empty clay-pots. Now I have 4 feet tall sunflowers on my deck! They are so pretty, and I’m excited to see them bloom.

Hopped the nest too soon

Quiet as a mouse until

My mom comes with worm.

Art Prescription:  We found a wee robin in our yard, not ready to fly. The nest was too high to return him, so we placed him in a basket and tied it in the tree. The parents found him quickly and resumed feeding. Yay. Then when I returned home later the basket was empty. Dang, I thought, hawk.

Heading out for my evening walk I saw the parents across the street in my neighbor’s yard. And guess what? There was the baby.

My friend who is a bird expert, said fledging does not necessarily mean they are ready to fly, but just ready to leave the vulnerable nest. The parents continue to feed and soon the baby will be hopping onto branches.
