    Teapot Birdhouse in the Jackmanii Clematis


    In looking around the garden, I see a theme has developed. It’s all about the birds and flowers. With approximately one hundred birdhouses, I suppose my collection is now nearing intervention status! Some are decorative and some are functional with clean-outs, but long ago I found out the birds are the ones who decide which is which. A bossy little house wren has commandeered the gazebo garden where she and her hubby have taken up residence in a blue bird house, chasing any other birds who dare to come near.

    Every new flower is an awaiting surprise and , as I stroll our garden, bird song greets me. A red fox streaked across the front lawn this early morning, probably from the cat food on our porch. We’ve had lovely rains and everything is an intense shade of spring green.
