Shiny Budgie  
I planted 30+ pumpkin seeds in the side yard. Here's hoping some will make it. The chickens have access so they might dig them up and eat them all. It's not where I want to have my main "patch" but I hope some will sprout and make it. Raptor stole some right out of my hand when I was planting. I still have a bunch of seeds to go so here's hoping that I'll get something cool or just have pumpkins and gourds take over the whole yard. Some of the seeds are from 2007 so if they don't make it it's ok and I'll know. But I've collected too many seeds over the years and this will be a neat way to see what's still good.

I got a tiny silver budgie in the mail today. This is so cool check him out!

Shiny budgie! His eye isn't black, that's my lens reflecting back. More behind the cut.

He's solid silver with a purity of .925. That's pretty good. I like my silver to be at least 90% pure. Of course .999 is the best but they don't usually use that for jewelry.

He is really shinny. I could tell right away he was silver.

I'm glad he can stand on his feet. He's pretty accurate except for the toes.

A quarter for size comparison. Yeah he's very small.

This is how he came. There were little "silver" glitter stars in the bag. So cute! I left the vendor very good feedback. It got here fast from having been from Australia and I bought the last one they had.

Chris got me Rio on Blueray/DVD. I'll probably watch it tomorrow. Looking forward to the special features. Perhaps I can draw some of the scenes.

Aww that budgie is so tiny and sweet!! I have a little guinea pig like that. Its sad they always seem to get the toes wrong on parrots though.
Yay you got Rio! It'll be out here too soon I've no doubt.

Yeah he's very little. Yeah people don't seem understand bird feet and not all birds have the same feet.
Yeah, I hope it will come out soon over there.

Aaaw...that little silver budgie is so cute and special!

Good luck with your seeds! The chooks won't eat the pumpkin seeds I offer them here. Too much other wild food, I guess. I have had other chooks eat them in the past. It would be so cool for that part of your yard to be covered with pumpkins and other plants. We all seem to end up with too many seeds, don't we? I was going through my collection today ready for spring planting, and have many out of date, now. They usually go in the compost bin.

And that's lovely Chris got you that DVD. What an attentive and nice hubby!

Yeah, he's really nice.

Thanks. Not all my girls like pumpkin seeds but Raptor seems to like them and was trying to steal them any chance she got. She even tried to take one of the bags from me. Yeah, I've got some old seeds I need to plant or just get rid of .

Yeah, he knows I was very excited about this movie.

I love that little silver budgie. It's so cute even with the wrong feet.

Now that Rio is out, I need to rent it.
Des: Hyacinthsthagirion on August 3rd, 2011 02:51 pm (UTC)
Yeah despite the feet it's very well made.

I think you'll like Rio.

I hope some of your seeds make it! I planted some pumpkin seeds out in the alley since I'm short on space. Some took and I'm quite pleased by how nice a ground cover it makes. heh Much better than grass.
