The sunflower seeds were intended for the red cardinals. We have a pair that stop by daily.
I left for a minute to make my tea, and when I sat back down at the kitchen table, noticed that the garland must have given way. That was on the ground, but someone didn't seem to be too bothered!
and everything goes against you,
till it seems as though you could not hang on
a minute longer,
never give up then,
for it is just the place and time
that the tide will turn
