It’s nesting season and I’ve been following the birds’ instincts. . .
Feathering my nest and doing some spring cleaning, painting and window dressing around the Potting Shed.
I took some time out for a little tabletop nesting and dish fun!
There seems to be nesting going on everywhere I look. . .
More than one bird has taken up residence outside the window of my Potting Shed. . .
And birds of a feather have flocked together for among the birdhouses for a little tabletop dining and seed buffet.
Bluebirds are nesting in the dovecote by the lake again this spring.
And a cardinal made her nest in the rose bush by the back door of the Potting Shed.
I heard a lot of chirping a couple of weeks ago by the front door of my shed.
And discovered a bird had made a nest in the top watering can of the chain gang. . .
The watering can at the top of the chain has a smaller than normal opening. It stayed nice and dry hanging under the eave of the roof, despite all our rain recently.
After the birds had flown from the nest, I pulled it down to peek inside and found the can was more than half full of nesting material . . . watering cans are good for more than just watering it seems. ;)
