Our community is a Bird City, and my Garden Club was instrumental in obtaining that designation. Each spring our community celebrates Green Day with basically a Love-Your-Mother-Earth celebration, including a weed-out, recycling of hazardous materials, and including many other fun and educational activities. This year we will partner with our Civic Foundation with a fundraising silent auction of hand decorated birdhouses. I have been working on my birdhouse all week long, have snipped the tip off of my middle finger and cut another. I should not be allowed near sharp objects, in this case, garden snips. Here is a photo of my birdhouse, "Charming Stone House in Gated Community." I really enjoyed making it.
p.s. my biggest dilemma was how to treat the perch---decided a paintbrush would be perfect!
