A Garden For the Birds

You will not hear the sound of a lawn mower on this corner. Instead of a lawn, there are bird chirps and calls as they dart in and out of the  grasses of different heights and textures. This garden is a haven for birds. They swoop down and settle near the water features nestled among the plants. An oakleaf hydrangea stands at one edge and vines will soon climb up the pyramid of ladders. The ripening seed heads of coneflowers and grasses will feed all those who visit. Their happy chatter is a welcome change from the roar of lawn mowers.
