Emmie's Garden

After my little parrotlet Emmie passed, a friend of mine suggested I honor her memory by doing something special. I decided to create Emmie's Garden ... A special play area in the place in our home that Emmie loved to play and hang out the most. I put our two java tree stands and some regular play stands in the area, and added two hanging, leather perches, a swing, willow baskets for foraging, and lots of toys. I made one area a feeding area and another a water hole area for drinking and bathing. Added two small palms and some other plants. It's still a work in progress, as I hope to add more plants and buy an indoor waterfall when my budget allows for it.

What? What? You talkin' to ME??? Hee hee!

I try to stop myself, really I do -- it just seems there's always ONE more toy that my birds just must have! And now that I have small, medium and medium+ birds, it's really hard to resist!!!!
