How do farmers party?
They turnip the beets.
Interesting Fact: The early naturalists had a gift for description you just don’t see anymore. In 1929, Edward Forbush called the Chipping Sparrow “the little brown-capped pensioner of the dooryard and lawn, that comes about farmhouse doors to glean crumbs shaken from the tablecloth by thrifty housewives.” ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Chipping_Sparrow/lifehistory )

Nice photo-and what a great description! You are right–they don’t describe now like they used to!
No they don’t. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Happy Blogging! 🙂
Green looks good on her !!
My Daddy was born in 1929. They sure don’t do ANYTHING like they used to. What a beautiful description of the Chipping Sparrow. I can see it all in my mind !! Today we don’t use beautiful language, either !! Words like, pensioner, glean, and thrifty, are also words rarely if every used today. Progress seems questionable to me !! Thank you for the lovely story written in the words of an everyday writer of the past. Jan
