Goldfinches ~ Beautiful little birds. My mum feeds them in the front garden as they like to be away from the "common" sparrows (maybe they are posh). They LOVE Niger seeds... Photo by Sandor Bernath.

Goddes Hara Ke

Hara Ke’s themes are spring, weather, providence, harvest and growth. Her symbols are seeds, soil, rain, water and dragon images. An African Goddess of sweet water (which also equates with the gentle spring rains) Hara Ke comes into our lives and spring with gentle, growth-inspiring refreshment. According to legend She lives under the river Niger with two dragons in attendance, caring for the souls who await rebirth, just as earth awaits its reawakening with spring.

Press dried cranberries and seeds, such as niger, sunflowers and mixed birdseed, into the peanut butter and hang.
