Every winter we open our very local bird restaurant in our backyard. We set it up under and around our Cercis Siliquastrum, or as it is called here our Judas tree. That way we can sit by the French windows and see flocks of birds fly in and out for a small snack.
This season we counted 16 different species of birds... all regular customers who come back from year to year.
And we're not the only ones to be thinking of our little flying friends. In kindergarten our 3 year old lady crafted a special bird feeder by paint spraying a pine cone silver and then filling it with pieces of apple and stale bread.
It proved really popular. Over the space of 24 hours there was not a crumb left in it.
And it's just so pretty to look at. Well done sweetie!
