Anything But a Card - First Challenge of the New Year

Hi everyone!  I hope you have enjoyed your first day of the New Year.  I spent mine firstly in the garden, digging out some plants which we didn't want along the front of the house anymore and then we hit the pool to cool down after lunch before Ten Pin Bowling with my nieces and nephew followed by McDonald's for Tea.

Today I have a very quick scrapbook layout I created for the very first Challenge for the New Year at Anything But a Card to share with you.

We have a lot of birds frequent our garden, and one of my favorites are the King Parrots.  In the past few weeks, we have been regularly visited whilst sitting out in our outdoor area by one of the Males.  He seems to come up to let us know when the feeding tray which is in our garden and which we fill with seed most days is empty.

He certainly isn't shy, so we decided to reward him for his bravery and placed a bowl with some seed on our barbecue so he could enjoy a meal to himself whilst we had morning tea and admired his beauty.  

Be sure to pop over to the Anything But a Card Site for more wonderful inspiration and I do hope you will join us and play along with the challenges each fortnight this year.

So glad that you are giving some TLC to your wildlife Danie! Even a bowl of freshwater is appreciated by so many residents. Your photos of the King parrots are fabulous - we don't often get them here!
And so it begins - 2013 Challenges.
