A Sweet Goldfinch

On a beautiful fall day this little goldfinch paused for a moment near the feeder. I love goldfinches–their soprano song, their calmness, their way of flying and swooping joyously through the air. So I hope you enjoy these pictures of this sweet little bird with a tiny crumb of bird seed on her beak.

So I had high hopes, and was surprised when the cookies emerged from the oven looking like flabby old pancakes. Yikes. Worse, they even tasted like flabby old pancakes. I placed one of these cookies outside on a leaf for the squirrels to eat, and it remains untouched. Even squirrels have their standards. So it’s back to the drawing board, and I will post the re-configured recipe later this week! Peace. Fran
