“Take Me Out to the Backyard”

As I was standing outside taking pictures in the subfreezing temperatures this morning, my frostbit brain started coming up with its own rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballpark.”  Feel free to sing along!

Take me out to the backyard

Fly me in with the crowd

Buy me some peanuts and sunflower seeds

Watch me eat them with gluttonous greed!

Oh it’s drink, drink, drink from the water

and sample some suety-lard

Oh it’s one –

two –

three nuts then out

of the old backyard!

    A beautiful collection of very well fed birds Kathie. You certainly look after your patrons at your take away establishment. When you see them so complete in good light one can appreciate the beautiful artistry of our Lord’s creative mind, that Blue Jay and woodpecker are real stunners with their patterns. Enjoy your week!
