Fifi,

Of course I would love this post because it is about my "friends" the birds. I left a comment yesterday and received a message that it was undeliverable to you??? Something about the volume of info going to your blog???

I love your garden.

LuLo Designs/Blue Eyed Tango said...

Hello Fifi,
Love the bird dresses...reminds me of the one swan dress (don't remember the designer...I'm betting you do) one of the stars wore to the Academy Awards one year....and got laughed at made and fun of by Joan Rivers... I might add. I happen to like them....very couture! If it wasn't a conflict of interest....would love to see one of your fun painted sketches of them.....models need to eat though!

Draffin Bears said...

I love your Outdoor Wednesday Fifi.

The colours are so bright and pretty.
We had a budgie Joey that just looked like the painting.

I love the birds and gardens.

Hugs
Carolyn
