By all their country's wishes blest!
When Spring, with dewy fingers cold,
Returns to deck their hallow'd mould,
She there shall dress a sweeter sod
Than Fancy's feet have ever trod.
By fairy hands their knell is rung,
There Honour comes, a pilgrim gray,
To bless the turf that wraps their clay;
And Freedom shall awhile repair,
To dwell, a weeping hermit, there."

Installed a new hose controller so I can water two places at once. Amazing how a dollar store item can make your time watering cut in half!
Our birds are RAVEN-OUS (pardon the pun). They call and let us know when they are hungry. They have done this for years and years. When we first moved here, we fed them and when they were hungry, they would jump on the roof and locate the vent holes and emit a loud "caw" in them to remind us that they were out there. Now they just do a fly-by when they see us out in the garden or on the property outside. I guess they have gotten more polite in later years ( or they have us well trained!)
The sparrows, wrens, orioles, and other assorted smaller birds are really enjoying our 'diners'. We are going thru bags of 50lb birdseed like water! But this is baby time so we understand.
You make these in advance, and keep them warm in a pan with foil top, but they're ok to eat cold too!
8 hot dogs
4 slices American cheese, each cut into 6 strips
1 (8 ounce) can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
8 wooden corn dog sticks
Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Slit hot dogs to within 1/2 inch of ends; insert 3 strips of cheese into each slit.
Separate dough into triangles. Wrap dough triangle around each hot dog. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, cheese side up.
Bake at 375 degrees F. for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Insert 1 stick in each crescent dog.
Voila! Great for kids and no messy fingers! Happy Picnicking!
