Four calling birds

Almost the last of Christmas season, with four calling birds. More like 3 tweeters and one squawker! Thinking we might miss winter here we were out gardening yesterday we have calendula and borage in bloom :)
For Creative Tuesday 12 days of Christmas.

Absolutely beautiful, and so perfect for the theme...Love that squawker....What a perfect ending to 2011, and a wake up call for 2012.

Happy New Year!

No gardening here. We had taken our hoses off but one get put back on and our water is frozen. Woe is me probably a broken pipe. Well, I love you entry. Great shading.

4 calling birds are very popular, yours are especially lovely. I love how round they are. I'm Jenn, by the way.
