“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”
― Edward Hersey Richards

A summer's birdbath,
A shady retreat.
Our backyard oasis
...feathered friend's flight path
to beat the summer heat!!

Are they real? Well, let me tellya, they're real all right...real resin.

  31. Anni,

    Love your mallards and enjoyed your Ruby Tuesday.

    Your new decor is absolutely gorgeous. Wish I could do something with mine, but cutestblogontheblock is having issues.

    Drop by the Nook again when you get the chance, or email me when you have time.

    Blessings,
    Mary
