Happy Wednesday! I took a cue from the birds and have been busy nesting in the Potting Shed.
Birds of a feather have flocked together for a little tabletop dining and seed buffet . . .
Every bird is welcome!
I love all things ‘bird’!
Eastern Bluebirds have taken up residence in two of our birdhouses. . .
Bluebirds are a gardener’s best friend as they have a voracious appetite for insects and help naturally rid the garden of pests.
They can produce between two and four broods during the spring and summer months.
I feathered my nest and table, twig by twig, including twig flatware . . .
Bird napkin rings flew in to roost at the table, perched on nest and egg napkins.
I love the sweet illustrations from The Country Diary of An Edwardian Lady and The Nature Notes of an Edwardian Lady by Edith Holden. I picked them up from a used book seller a couple of years ago.
Beautifully illustrated, Edith Holden’s “nature notes” from 1905, chronicle months of the calendar year with anecdotes, folklore, and poems, and are accompanied by her watercolor paintings of flowers, plants, birds, butterflies and landscape scenes of the British countryside.
Both Edith Holden’s Nature Notes and The Country Diary of An Edwardian Lady are a treat to peruse if you enjoy nature and gardening.
The Bird Book by Neltje Blanchan flew home with me from a favorite antique mall.
If you’re a reader of my blog you know I have a *slight* watering can addiction.
I found this Birding Life watering a couple of months ago at Tuesday Morning.
