  Hi Midget
Punkin here. Peck on my name and come visit Please.

Mom was worried we were running out of flowers but I told her to check the list again and BOY! still so much to eat!! So we thought we'd start with herbs for a couple of days. Hope you like them...
Sweet Woodruff (Galium odoratum) - Also known as Wild Baby's Breath. The flower flavor is sweet and grassy with a hint of nutty, vanilla flavor.

NOTE: Can have a blood thinning effect if eaten in large amounts

Savory (Satureja hortensis) - The flavor of the flowers is somewhat hot and peppery and similar to thyme.

  Hi Midget
Punkin here. My quest is to make BOTM. Could you both help? I'm letting everybirdie know some of the flowers we CAN EAT!
Here's today's flowers:
Phlox, Perrennial Phlox (Phlox paniculata) - It is the perennial phlox, NOT the annual, that is edible. It is the high-growing (taller) and not the low-growing (creeping) phlox that grows from 3 to 4 feet tall. Slightly spicy taste. Great in fruit salads. The flowers vary from a Reddish purple to pink, some white.

Marigold (Tagetes tenuifolia - aka T. signata) - The marigold can be used as a substitute for saffron. Also great in salads as they have a citrus flavor.

Nasturtiums Tropaeolum majus) - Come in varieties ranging from trailing to upright and in brilliant sunset colors with peppery flavors. Nasturtiums rank among most common edible flowers. Blossoms have a sweet, spicy flavor similar to watercress. Stuff whole flowers with savory mousse. Leaves add peppery tang to salads. Pickled seed pods are less expensive substitute for capers. Use entire flowers to garnish platters, salads, cheese tortas, open-faced sandwiches, and savory appetizers

  Hi you two cutie-pies!
Yeah, I know you're boys but my faith in the real knowing has been shaken. I see I told you about my buddy, Pico. Well, on April Fool's morning, he laid an EGG! Then as the week went on, laid 2 more eggs. So my pal, turned into the cutest 'gal' ever and as fast as lightening, my other buddy, Mango, made the play for her and now...POOF!...Love is blooming! They make a great couple, really! She being the lovely caique and he, being the hyper-casanova rainbow lory. ALL THE GIRLS LOVE HIM,(Sam says in frustration!) EVEN MY OWN MOM & NANNY!! It's not fair, I tell you!! Sam looks forlorned and shakes his head. All he has to do is say, 'kiss the beak' and mom just melts....MY own mother! Now he's disgusted. Well, I love that picture where the two of you are in the sink. You know, I've heard about that....Mom had an oldest brother that would say he was going to teach her to swim and then just dunked and dunked her under water. No offense there Matilda, but it looks like that's what YOUR doing!!! Watch out Midget!! hahahahaha!!! Have a great evening! Hugs, SamIAm

  Hello Midget!
You are just the cutest little birdie! I love your baby pictures!! You fister is a cutie, too! I hope you will come back around soon! Have you met Pico or Peeps? They are little caiques, too, but just because they're small doesn't mean they don't have the biggest of hearts! Pico has a little human he plays with at times. There are videos of him doing just that! Do you have any videos? I'm sure sorry that I don't have any! Mom doesn't have the equipment for that....I would just blow people away with some of the things I say!! Some of those are..." I'm getting FED UP!!!" Mom says that to the cats when they are going in and and out about a zillion times a day. But I've learned how to use it just as she means it. I use it when she won't answer me or come to me when I want her to!! So, I get pretty FED UP with MOM not doing what I want her to. So you see, I understood fully what she was saying & meaning at the time she said it to those cats!! heeheehee! Mom's thinking about rolling me out on the deck tomorrow to get some sun! It will get up to 75F but Mom will have to watch it because their deck is on the South side of the house & it gets hotter there. She's afraid my cage could get too hot to the touch. A few hours will do me good anyways! I hope you have a wonderful weekend & hope your weather is getting warmer where you are!

  Hi Midge!
Nice to meet you!!! I'm so glad you and Matilda came to visit me! How are you? How is your day going? What did you do today? Oh do share! I love to hear what other birdies did today. Me? Oh, I plucked a few tail feathers out (ouch!) and snacked on some nutriberries! Pretty boring huh? Oh, and I learned a new series of words: " Oh no you didn't!" hee hee. :)
Hugs and come visit me anytime!!

  Hey, where'd the baby pics go?
I think I actually saw how your black feathers grew in!! It was really adorable! But that third pic down THERE!! It looks like one of my mom's cats coughing up a HAIRBALL!! From the look of how wide your mouth is I'd say it was the size of a turkey, too!! My oh my! Let's just say it's a very good picture of a fierce caique about to take out a villian who has invaded your nest!!! That would be the last thing they ever saw! That could be a very scarey thing to see coming at ya!! You do all birdies everywhere proud...never ever invade a bird's nest or THIS will happen to you!!! Yep, you'll have kitties everywhere having those nightmares where you see their little paw batting or twitching like they're running away!! Yep yep!! Very proud, Midget! Have a good evening and...pleasant dreams!! SamIAm

  Hello Midget!
A good evening to you! I like your black cap my little friend, it's quite stylish to me! Caiques are quite agile and quick. I like that since we grays are rather clumsy at times(Sam blushes) in fact, most times. I can't tell you how many times I wasn't watching what I was doing & just stepped off the perch. Thank goodness I have a big cage & the use of my wings so I just catch myself and land on the bottom. It wasn't so all the time. You & Matilda come by anytime. Votes for you!

  Hi Midget
Now as the sun sets on this beautiful day we would like to thank each and every one of you who have voted and sent so many compliments as we have shared BOTD over the weekend. It has been an exquisite weekend at the castle and just in time for Valentine's day. May your holiday tomorrow be filled with happiness in the presence of the one you love most. Ours will be a delight as long as we are together. We are the last of our flock to experience the joys of being royalty. It is time now for us to step down and allow the next lucky bird to grace the castle halls.
