Goldfinch
Soft, subtle colors of winter are a mere whisper of your summer dress.
You do not fly south where days are warm.
Feeders are filled to overflowing to relieve your daily hunting stress.
Perched for a turn or to sound alarm,
buffeted by the north wind, a little poof of feathers sings, My friend. My friend.
Donna Black

Ficus pumila Variegata
When variegated plants revert to green, it should be removed. The trimmings can be rooted for a whole other plant.

    What a sweet, colorful fluffy little bird! I try so hard to get photos of the birds, but as soon as I get my camera focused, off they fly away!
