*****LIFE'S A GARDEN*****
CHRONICLES OF A GARDENING FOODIE!
Saturday, April 21, 2012
I remember every Spring when I was little building Birdhouses with my grandfather. We did the same with our son when he was little and many of them are still around. Do kids do that anymore?
I have always found Birdhouses quite beautiful. Not only do they function as a home for birds but they add so much loveliness to your yard. It is nice to look up into a tree and see these darling little homes, many so painstakingly made to resemble real houses.
My grandmother had an old Victorian Birdhouse that sat on a lovely old staircase post in the yard for years. I have it now and it needs some work, when I am finished I think I will keep it in the house, it holds some lovely memories.
I really like the old Victorian Birdhouses. Many times they were built to resemble the big houses. The details were incredible. I have found new one online especially on Etsy. It is nice to see that people still care enough to create functional yet beautiful homes for birds.
If you don't have a birdhouse you should get one. It is so nice to sit and watch the birds building their homes every Spring. They seem so proud when the find a house to live in. Whether you buy one or make one or just redo an old neglected one, they will give you hours of pleasure and the satisfaction that you have done a little bit for nature.
I am proud of my Canadian, Norwegian and British heritage, it greatly influences my art and the way I decorate my 235 year old farmhouse. I am a vegan earth mother living in Canada. My passion is my family, my furry darlings and my art. I do all that I can for the welfare of all creatures great and small. I live a life that I fill with magic, blessings and bliss for myself and my loved ones.
