This is Orianna with her goldfinches. This time of year in Upstate New York the goldfinches are busy eating seeds. They especially like to land on the delicate cosmos in my garden. The long slender stem bends gracefully down as they sidle out to the flower head. It is fun to watch their bursts of yellow coming up out of the fields of purple asters and goldenrod.
Orianna's colors were inspired by the rich colors of our fall landscape.
