My latest effort in creating a domicile for my fine feathered friends is seen here. I try to put up a couple of new ones each year. This one got painted gold for no reason other than it was the first can of paint I came across in my search for a different color. Most of the housing around the yard is picked up each fall, but others like this one are permanently attached. I've got a couple up around the garden on posts that will certainly need some attention come spring. Yes, after yesterday blast of frigid temperatures, I'm contemplating May right now. Maybe even a sojourn to a couple of beaches around Daytona come April.
Please pass the sunscreen.

The weather in this picture is so very the opposite to what we're got going on at the moment! I love that you make houses for the birds and gold seems as good a colour as any for it!ReplyDelete
I think the birds will appreciate the house and also the color!ReplyDelete
I just filled up the bird feeder on the veranda. Very popular lunch place for some of the local birds.ReplyDelete
Little bit of sunshine in the wintery weather :)ReplyDelete
I bet your feathered friends enjoy your colorful housing.ReplyDelete
i need a few new houses around here. when i build mine from scrap wood, they look like shacks. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you for helping our feathered friends find shelter in these inclement days of winter. Why the heck are you waiting for April. Oh, it's too cold here, too. Feels like Minnesota outside this morning. Aargh!ReplyDelete
Perfect house for some gold-finches. :-)ReplyDelete
You watched a lot of Seinfeld! Me too! Love the gold house.ReplyDelete
I imagine they appreciate having the quarters set up for them to get through the winter.ReplyDelete
I'll take your snow.ReplyDelete
Do your houses have tenants? Hard life for a bird in the Maine winter.ReplyDelete
Soon we'll be back in that little Central American country that has more species of birds than the United States.
I wonder if they try to keep up with the Joneses.ReplyDelete
It warms my heart knowing that you are taking care of the birds. We have quite a variety and probably are entertaining some of your summer residents right now. Beautiful photoReplyDelete
Gold. For gold finches. Or other bird royalty that is looking for something of an upgrade.ReplyDelete
I'm sure that come spring there will be birds who appreciate your decorating.ReplyDelete
I'm sure that gold makes the local birds feel very special, Birdman.ReplyDelete
Even if the snow piles higher, neither you nor the birds will have trouble finding this snug little house.ReplyDelete
It looks so wee and charming against that big woods in winter...ReplyDelete
