You may or may not know that Ben is a typical male at times. He's not really all that with it about flowers, for example. He knows what a rose is and he now knows what a daisy is (thanks to me), but other than that, he's a little on the lost side. And that's okay with me; I'm not big on getting gorgeous bouquets of expensive flowers that are only fodder for cat eating and subsequent cat puking.
Ben also sometimes has this same issue with birds. Personally, I thought that some birds are by default easier to identify than others. For example...the blackbird. I mean, how many black birds are there that sit in your yard and eat sunflower seeds? Not many. Granted, some blackbirds do have iridescent feathers around their head/back, but they are still BLACKbirds. Silly Ben. I'm supposed to add the disclaimer that this particular blackbird had a green (iridescent) head, so that made it confusing.
"I value my garden more for being full of blackbirds than of cherries, and very frankly give them fruit for their songs."
