Flower Friend

When I was a young girl my great grandmother {who was also a farmer's wife} gave me this little ceramic bird that she painted {I loved doing crafts with her}.  It was painted a robin's egg blue and the bird had it's mouth wide open.  It was a watering stake that I put in a plant and then I would "water" the bird who would then slowly water the plant.  It was kind of like the following image on the right, except mine was cuter because my great grandma made it!!!

This evening I went out and watered my garden and flowers.  Remember this project here.  I was watering my flowers and was startled when I saw this.

I assume the bird was injured or sick because it didn't fly away when I got up in his beak and took his picture.  He is not photogenic at all!!!

It's one of those things that sparked a childhood memory of mine.....so I thought I would share it with you.

PS At least it wasn't a snake!!!!!
