A Garden Evolves

Bird garden10/11/09 - On the south side of the house, outside and a little to the left of the kitchen, is an area, surrounded by what passes for trees around here--a couple of live oaks, a big juniper, and a piñon.

We'll set up a bench, the bird feeders, and a bird bath here; with shade and cover, ;it's an ideal secret little spot for that purpose.

The pedestal from a long-gone bird bath (the bowl sacrificed to a curious cat) and poles for the feeders await our attention.

The photo at right shows what it looks like now----------->
