feed the birds

do you feed the birds❀

lately, one thing i really look forward to 
from my window view is to see different kind of birds
visiting my balcony.  looking at them so near by in 
nature is the most relaxing time.  
they may never know how much joy they bring to us.  
i am not sure if this works but fun experiment!
avocado pit covered with mashed rice(as a glue),
then dipped into bird seeds.   

p.s. my giveaway entry is still open until ☾tonight.

scented sashet

rainy morning, woke up with the sweet scent of
lavender this morning.  .....'s leaves changing color
as if they are in the middle of autumn.  do your's
change color like this at this time of the year?
not sure if it's good or bad, should i remove the
red leaf?  do anyone knows about this?
(i can never remember the name of this plant).
tulip buds slowly peaking through  ✾

beautifully made sashet with antique
tea towels, filled with sweet scent.
