My Jack-O-Lantern's stint in my urban garden ended early this season as he had to be brought inside due to my preparing my garden for Hurricane Sandy.
Moreover, there was no room for him at the inn (my indoor succulent garden), so he was forced into an early hiatus; but he promised to return next year, if I shared a few more photo-ops of the pleasure he derived from watching my visiting mourning doves and house finches. I told him that I was not sure who'd see this entry as I normally do not post on Wednesday, but he insisted!
Moreover, this sweet Jack-O-Lantern is aware of the sorrow brought on by the wrath of Hurricane Sandy, and he said if he had to leave early, he wanted to make sure to leave you something to make you smile! He assumes you will derive pleasure from seeing the mourning doves' and house finches' experiences with a feeder. In the finches' case (the little red guy), settled for the scraps that fell to the table whilst the mourning doves worked their beaks off!
