This basket is about 12 x 6 x 4 inches. I think it would have been better with just the bow or just the bird, but not both. I don't dare try taking them off however because I'd mess something up. Oh I just had an idea. I made the bow separately, but next time I make the top strip longer and tie a knot. Remember the other one like this I had the bird on the handle and then I thought it would be hard to pick up with a bird on the handle. Now I think the bird on the handle looked better. I may have to make another one like that. This little bird is singing just like the Carolina chickadee that was outside my window the other day. See previous post to see the bird and below is a youtube of one singing. I guess the Carolina chickadee has a different sound than the northern chickadee.
There's a whole crop of new frogs, probably toads, outside. Literally hundreds of them are hopping everywhere. They're no bigger than the size of a dime. I have to be real careful where I walk. When the sun gets higher in the sky all the toads seem to jump in a Northerly direction. Gary said there were lots of them at the post office hopping everywhere too. This must be when they're all born, when the humidity is higher in the summer. A group of toads is called a knot. So there are knots of toads around here.
I found out it's easy to give a refund via paypal. Go into your account, check the box for the transaction, click details, type in the amount of the refund and then click submit. Yesterday was really hot and I didn't hear any birds or animals during the middle of the day. They all must have been hiding in the shade. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
