Flock of Sharon

I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn. ~ Henry David Thoreau

Likewise, though vastly different, Sharon once had a sparrow alight on her shoulder while hoeing in a village. She was indistinguishable from any other lit village ho.

I once found a bean in my garden that was shaped like Sharon.

An extreme close up of Sharon's head reveals quite the thrush!

all creatures love Sharon but these little birdies have always worshipped her!

A bird in the hand is definitely worth more than the thousands that flew out of the bush!

what is it about birds? in their perfection of flight, punctuality & perfect pitch, they keep us honest. - ruth of www.youtube.com/watch?v=2oMCZy7BdEY
