I created this design as a birthday gift to my mother.   The plant the birds are feeding from is meant to be Pitcher’s Thistle (Cirsium pitcheri), an endangered species native to the sand dunes of the upper Great Lakes.  Since my mom lives in Michigan, I wanted to include something in the design that was unique to the Midwestern region of the US.
