Nature's Voices

I love hearing the birds sing in the morning. When I do I know it's going to be a productive day. Something about sunny mornings make me happy and when I can listen to nature's voices it's all the better. We have a hanging planter in the front of our house with hot pink geraniums in it. Little did I know when I picked out that plant at the farmer's market it would become the home for a Purple Finch family. They built their little nest tucked neatly inside the plant and are waiting with anticipation for their six little eggs to hatch. We've been watching closely and hoping the raptors will keep their distance. Last year the luck was not with the Finches :(

I love my feathered friends and it has put me in the mood to cast on for these. I adore this pattern! Once again, Marie has designed a fabulous woolly something. The cardinal is one of my favorites and has such a pretty song so he will be first. Pictures to follow!

(PS. Did you get a glimpse of the new gnome she created! Eeeee! I can't wait to make him too)
