matched for the occassion

Today I'm linking up with the lovely Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. It's where whoever loves words, silences the inner critic and writes on a prompt for five minutes straight. Not fretting over being perfect. Won't you come on over and join in? Today's prompt is change.

I wonder how this happened.

Did Mr.Goldfinch go and change his coat to match his restaurant?

He and his wife have been visiting our sunflowers just outside our back window. I’ve had a front row seat to their dining on seeds and their silly antics in order to get to the seeds.

I had no idea that a goldfinch would literally hang upside down with toes hooked into flower petals to get to the delectable seeds in the center of the sunflower. 

But, just like a circus performer, he hangs there. 



Even when the wind is blowing the tall flower stalk back and forth, back and forth. He stays there.

And, he matches his restaurant with his beautiful coat.

Then along comes a yellow butterfly, flitting about the sunflowers. The yellow of the wings matching perfectly.

And then Mr. Bumblebee. So glad to see him with his black and yellow suit on to match his dining accommodations too.

All this is a front row seat for me. 

They don’t know how much joy I am getting out of this beautiful close up of color coordinated creation.

Black and yellow sunflowers.
Black and yellow goldfinches.
Black and yellow bees.
Black and yellow butterflies.

I wonder if the Creator intended this to be so, that the creatures that would be drawn to a certain place to dine would show up matched to the occasion?

Blessings to you today,



  1. Such beautiful insight. I love how you "see"!
