i wonder where the summer went. it's september already and my Mom says thats the start of fall. that if we're lucky we'll still get a bunch a warm days, but she said i'll start growin' my winter coat soon! (i wonder where i'll grow it? is there a special spot in the yard where i need to plant the seeds? where do i get the seeds? how will i know they're the right color??) sigh...there is just so much for a little poodin to worry 'bout. those are my buds up there. they're called goldfinches. they eat like pigs.
