This Weeping Cherry is outside my dining room window.
I'm sure you've seen it many times.

As you can see, it is loaded with buds.

The Finches already are systematically removing them.
They suck the nectar out of them and drop them on the ground.

I never get to see this tree in full blossom.
They are all over the ground.
I guess the three feeders out there aren't enough.

Yes, YOU !!

Hello Missy, love the sweet house finch! My weeping cherry tree died, not sure why? I do not think the birds killed it. Sorry the birds are getting to your buds. Enjoy your day!

Missy, This is one reason I love blogging...we learn so much from one another. I did know birds would do that. I do love the shape of your tree too. It would be beautiful all bloomed out. Do you think some things to scare birds away would keep them off that tree? Like a big plastic. :) I do remember at work there were fake owls in some of the trees...but it never kept the sparrows away. :) Blessings, hope it is warming up there. xoxo, Susie

I hate when that happens...but I guess it is one of the laws of first come/first served--or something like that. lol
Hope you have a wonderful day, Missy. xo Diana

I'm just saying, your house is the house to be at and those birds know it! I don't blame them - they get to fly in, be photographed, eat for free and tease a watchful cat - If i was a bird I'd hang around too. Actually if I lived by you I'd be over all the time haha.

I think we should put a tent over the tree . . .
Hmmm . . . might work!

Well I've never heard of such a thing happening. - Those little finches are cute but goodness they much be pigs. - Just found your blog through (Irish Garden House) and am now a follower.

Oh, what a shame. We had one of these trees at a previous home and I just loved it.

My, it's good that there are so many buds--some for the birds and some to bloom! Great photos.
