Ploughing a new furrow

One of the things I love best about this time of year is the way so many birds suddenly decide to flock together. Nature switches to party mode as the jostling, chattering crowd swoops excitedly from place to place.

 When I am Rich I’ll buy a tractor and offer to help the neighbouring farmers with their autumn ploughing and sowing. I might even resort to offering bribes for the chance to be the centre of such joyful attention!

Gardening, or rather digging, makes that happen in a small way.
Go dig a bit, you’ll soon have a robin following you around. And blackbirds will love you too.

PS: I hate Google+. If I am ever forced to join I’ll go elsewhere.

When a near by farmer is driving up and down in the field next door it attracts the buzzards..I just love to watch them ! We get dancing " clouds " of starlings too...amazing to watch, especially if they all swoop overhead !
