  8. Love feeding the birds and simple feeders make it even more special. I love these cookie cutter hearts – would be fun to do in the shape of butterflies too. The bird activity has been amazing at our place. I currently have this baby female cardinal that comes to visit at the window almost everyday. She perches on the lawn chair then gives a loud chirp, I come to the window she gets real quiet and chirps again then flies over the bird bath and goes on her way. It’s so neat.. If it wasn’t so hot I would sit outside and wait for her and catch a photo.

    1. Carole, it has be so cute to watch the birds come around and pick at the heart, I don’t know much about the type of birds but they are small and adorable! Will need to get a photo, but its hard to take one, its to far or they leave when i get closer. Thanks for stopping by. Maria
