By now I am sure many many of us are awaiting spring time. I think we have a few more weeks but my birds, I truly believe they are MY birds, the same ones, yes the same ones, are constantly at my bird feeders. I do have six bird feeders and that could be why. How ever, if it were possible I would have my husband build me an aviary but that might be too cruel to keep them to myself.
So, a few years back I got into doing gourds. Yes, gourds that are ground grown into different shapes and when I couldn't grow them big enough, I would order them via ebay or some crafty website.
I think I put these two photos of the eggplant and pear that I did on my blog awhile back. They did resemble with my artist eye, the shape of that veggie and fruit.
I am now getting ready for Spring. I am springing for the birds. I had my dear husband make my gourds into bird homes for those precious darlings that are probably costing me $25.00 a month to feed but they are loving stale bread too so basically I am helping those creatures and yet I am recycling stale bread.
I thought only Robins show up to signal that Spring is coming. I saw one on in our tree and the next day, yesterday, it snowed. So much for that thought. Here are my gourd birdhouses which I personally think are adorable.
Will certainly let you know if these featherly beings regard my efforts and start a family.
