Magical Moments
Today is Friday the Thirteenth, and as you may recall, dear reader, there are some folks who suffer from a case of Friggatriskaidekaphobia on this day. I discussed this in a blog entry in May of 2011, where I pointed out that my H.F. Clematis vine, which grows in my urban (NYC) terrace garden, had no such qualms. And, if you want to refresh your memory on this fact, please click here to refer to that particular entry here on Blogger.

Meanwhile, as you can see from the image posted above, my visiting finches are also fearless on this day. In fact, they always just take life as it comes, as evidenced in a few photo-ops posted below:

Who goes there?
Here we go round the little bird feeder, the little bird feeder, early in the evening.

WHAT???? NOT ANOTHER PHOTO-OP! 
Truly my visiting finches live in the moment and live out the parable described in Matthew, which surmises, Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns. . . "  

Of course you could argue that my visiting finches do not have to toil, reap or sow, because I feed them, and I must be the one to toil, reap and sow in order to be able to provide for them. The fact is my visiting finches provide so much more for me than I could ever give them as evidenced by the images included in today's blog post as well as ones on tumblr and Pinterest

Moreover, I certainly hope to include a documentation of my visiting finches' amazing antics in the Virtual Stories (mini movies) which I plan to produce for my "giving voice to gardens" project that I have recently launched on indiegogo, and which you may review by clicking here.
