Enjoying a cool evening on the porch

Yesterday afternoon when it cooled off I gathered some little projects and finished them on the front porch swing. A slight breeze was very welcome as I sat and enjoyed my iced green tea. I embellished my brooches as I watched several birds splash around the birdbath. I never realized how much noisier they are when flying with wet wings. I imagine it is quite a workout lifting water soaked wings in flight. They landed in the service berry tree next to the porch waiting to take another turn in the freshly filled bath. I was hidden from sight behind the Wisteria vine threatening to take over the porch. I will leave the vine until it looses its leaves before trimming back so I can hopefully enjoy more bird frolics. I should keep my camera handy. There were four bathers at a time, a rarity around here.

The brooches are now finished and ready for etsy or artfire sometime today.The purple one is for a friend :-)

It is still nice out so I must get into something. My poor garden is in need of major help. Any volunteers???? :-) (I wish)
