I have noticed more birds this year than normal. I don't know if they have always been there, and I never noticed, or there are more.
My friend, Lea Ann made one of these, and I have always wanted one for my very own.
I stared out with a spindle that I found in my Daddy's barn last year ...
and spray painted it turquoise.
I then used some dishes that I had
and glued them together.
I let it sit for a couple of hours before
I glued everything together and put it in a pot with some plants around it to dry.
After it dried, I found a more permanent place in my "catch all" flower bed ...
it seems to catch everything from grass to zinnia and lavender to strawberries ...
With a little bird seed and water, instant restaurant for the birds!
