About Me

Hi, my name is Virginia Hamilton. I love eating, cooking, growing, sharing, shopping for, and talking about food, and reading about all of the above. I subscribe to a number of food related blogs and am writing this blog to join the conversation.

I also like to sing around the house, so my husband calls me his songbird, thus the name of my blog.

I live in Texas, partly in Austin and partly in Houston, and soon will be moving to Brenham, a mid-size town between the two cities. When considering a certain house for sale in Brenham, I went out into the backyard and sat in its covered patio. I heard a rustle in the tree nearby and saw there a red bellied woodpecker, very quietly looking at me. It seemed such a rare and lovely sight, that I felt the moment as a harbinger of something very special. We will be moving in soon and I hope to attract all kinds of birds, bees, frogs, lizards, and other critters and plants to the garden I am now imagining I will plant there.

Here is a recent picture of me. You cannot really see it, so I will tell you, I am wearing my favorite t-shirt from the Madison Farmers Market, made by my friends Carol and Al Hambrecht. They sell t-shirts and wonderful canvas shopping bags at their stand at the Farmers Market in Madison, Wisconsin, and online at madisonfarmersmarket.com . If you look, you will want to own them all.VA for blog
