This is what Julia said:
I am very lucky to have a garden and even luckier that a variety of birds visit each day. At the moment we have 2/3 blackbirds who are really ruling the roost so to speak. They are beautiful song birds I know, but they are having a conversation. You can tell with the intonation of the sounds and the responses from another birds.
So, your prompt this week is to write that conversation!
“Phew! My wings are aching. All that flapping. Whose garden have you brought me to now, then?”
“It’s Julia’s place – she of the hundred word challenge.”
“What good are words to me? I need food.”
“Coming from one who doesn’t stop talking…”
“I have a lot to complain about. We were just settling into our nest and now I have to build a new one.”
“But we finished the cherries in the old place. Remember? And look at those delicious cherries over there.”
“The ones that are protected with a net?”
“Didn’t you see what I brought?”
“Scissors! Oh darling!”

I love it! 😀
Thank you 🙂
Great story. The next time I see some birds flying around with scissors, I’ll know they’re yours.
Don’t all birds carry scissors with them?
Ha. These birds are resourceful.
Have to be, in this day and age.
Scissors. Oh my. Smart birds. Cherries are worth the extra work. Ha ha.
They certainly are.
Love the last line!
The other lines you didn’t like? 😉
Oh! This was lovely and cute! Very nice!
Giggling! I just found your site and … smiling 🙂
Smiling is good. Giggling, too. 🙂
That was good for a morning snicker over my coffee and banana moon-pie.
Banana moon-pie. Sounds tempting, but I think I’ll stick to my muesli.
