This was originally posted on November 15, 2008. And I thought of my visitors yesterday as I was in the breakfast room and one of these perky birds was flitting from feeder to feeder. And I remembered my unexpected visitors. I've still not figured out where or how -- but I loved their brief visit inside Linderhof.
Please visit Chari at Happy to Design and see what everyone else is sharing again this Sunday.
We love having visitors at Linderhof whether invited or uninvited. Yesterday, two uninvited guests came for a very short visit. I was cleaning in the dining room when out of the kitchen "floated" what seemed to be a brown leaf. Upon investigation, it was a bird, a brown Carolina Wren! And then along came another! Perky creatures, these wrens. They had arrived earlier in the week to winter in Linderhof's garden. They were hanging out in the ivy by the garage -- chit, chit, chitting at one another. They flited from one plant to another and I was so afraid that they would knock themselves silly flying into a window. One flew into the kitchen and I quickly opened an unscreened kitchen window where the herbs resided.
