Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Another Birdhouse


 Do you remember the birdhouse project I wrote about here?  Well, I've made another one.  I had a friend over for lunch and a craft and we both made houses. My friend's is on the right and mine on the left.



 I used cut up pine cones for the shingled roof. The roof is outlined with stalks from sedum.  The walls are covered with split Joe Pye weed stalks, and the wreath around the hole is from tall grass.

We had a lot of fun completing our projects.

You have inspired me. I always have wanted to make a birdhouse with a pinecone shingled roof.

Glad to see the pine cones worked out for the roof!
