For the past few years, I have found that I enjoy attracting an assortment of birds to my yard to add movement and color to the garden. My favorites, of course, are brightly colored goldfinches - but then that may be because they are so easy to attract. Many offer them finch or thistle seed in special feeders, but I find mine happily visit my feeder filled with sunflower seeds.

Until next time ... HAPPY GARDENING!
