Moda UK On Meadowlark Pond Layer Cake by Kansas Troubles Quilters
“Over the years, in a spot midway between our front porch and the
pond… my husband, Robert, has gathered an array of bird-feeders. There are
hooks with feeders of all sizes and shapes, holding a variety of bird seeds. We enjoy
watching blue jays, barn swallows, red-winged blackbirds, robins, finches, bob-whites,
and an abundance of our Kansas state bird, the Meadowlark.
Within minutes of filling the feeders, there is a flurry of wings. There are dances for
dominance, tweets of happiness and songs of gratitude when the feast is done.
At dusk, the rabbits, racoons and deer wander in to take advantage of the seeds
that dropped to the ground. Robert admits he buys enough seed to feed the entire
county… but the show makes it all totally worth it.”
