No sewing today....I spent the day in my gardens. I planted more corn, more radishes (and harvested a handfull of radishes that I had planted earlier), scarlett runner beans, yellow lemon cucumbers, eggplant, and 12 gourd vines of various type. While I was down on my hands and knees planting a gourd vine, I happened upon this little fellow. He was quite bold and allowed me to get very close to him. It probably helped that Maddie, my Newfie was on his other side. I am sure he figured that of the two, I was the least threatening! See how he puffs his chest and holds up his beak as if to say "Go ahead, Lady, take my picture!".
I believe he is a baby tree sparrow. His family have taken residence in one of the bluebird boxes we hung on the garden fencepost.
