Bird Houses in the Snow

I took pictures of some of my favorite bird houses in the snow yesterday. This is making me want spring to hurry up and get here! I need to see little blue eggs in some of these.

No one ever builds in this one. I think it's because it's metal but it's cute on my garden arch just the same.

The one on the left we moved with us the last time. Blue Birds built in it every year at our old house but they prefer the one pictured below in our yard here.

My Mom gave me this little whimsical house and a family of Carolina Chickadees built in it last summer. The sign on the angel says, "Bless the birds and the songs they sing" I say "Amen" to that!

I couldn't leave out my big fat iron blue bird. It was a gift from my Brother-in-law. He sits in my window box most years but he is spending the winter in the flower box on the deck. The wrens check him out every year but always build somewhere else. I love him anyway.


  1. I love birdhouses too! I have one similar to your terracotta round one that always has a bluebird family move in. Happy birding!

  2. Isn't that funny - so much for the wooden house on a post theory!

  3. I just found your blog through googling 'Secrets to Growing Clematis'. I will now be a follower. I am in 8 - 8b zone.

  4. Welcome, Darla. Clematis are some of my favorite flowers. I plant on propagating several of mine for sale in my little greenhouse this year. If you have any questions post them on my FaceBook page and I will try to find an answer for you.
