* F for Feathers *

Morning all

Sorry for the lack of blogging lately but this time of year is very busy on the veggie plot with digging and planting plus i have decided to start up an aviary again, about 10 years ago i used to breed budgies, canaries and cockatiels, i had over 50 pairs of budgies and used to supply the local pet shop with hand tame birds, but that got a bit too much for me so gave them up but i missed them terribly so hubby said i could have a small aviary again, so we are in the process of building and buying.

My card for today is for the new challenge set over at 
Our theme for the next 2 weeks is F for Feathers
I have used a Jayne Netley Mayhew image from her new CD
Have a lovely weekend all.
