We must have at least 20 birdhouses around our property but the squirrels and woodpeckers ruin them so we painted 4 new ones this year.
I used to paint nice scenes on them but now I just stencil----the birds don't care !!! LOL LOL

Florence, those are great.

Is THAT what happened to the entrance to the house in your Love Story post, I'd wondered!

Birds are showing some interest in nesting here. I watched a chickadee going in and out of one of the nest boxes just yesterday - no grass or moss in its mouth yet though. Sparrows are trying to claim the swallow houses already so I've temporarily blocked the openings to those - darned sparrows, and such noisy rude little things :)

Squirrels - we don't have, only an occasional chipmunk. And a too large population of racoons.

RE: The birdhouses are ready!!!

very pretty flo. do you have any eastern bluebirds? they are a favorite, along with cardinals and goldfinches.

btw, how is zeffy, viking queen and clotilde doing?


RE: The birdhouses are ready!!!

Patrick---I'm happy you hand is well enough to type.
I've never seen a bluebirs on my property ---they are a few miles north of us..

We do have a lot of great birds-----Cardinals--goldfinch---Nuthatch---tuted Titmouse----etc etc.
My roses are leafing out nicely---CS has a lot of new growth and I put her in one of my sunny spots right by the french doors--Can't wait to see a bloom---I think of you every time a go out the door.
