During the colder winter months the garden is rather quiet, taking a much needed rest. My feathered friends bring much needed color and movement during this time. This week my husband and I created a new feeding station in the woodland garden.
My husband put up a 4 x 4 post and secured it in place with cement. I stained the post a blue color to add a little whimsy. Adding a fence post cap, plant hooks and a squirrel baffle (the squirrels will otherwise hog all the food and not leave any for the birds) completed the feeding station.
We are now ready to welcome more birds to our garden this winter and keep them well feed so that they can use that energy to stay warm.
I am thankful for all our feathered friends that call our garden home.
