We had our first frost last night so I made this little bird feast just in time yesterday.
I had saved the wire circle from my Christmas wreath last year with the intentions of making this bird feast this year. I cut some of the branches from the big 'floppy' tree over the small pond and wired them around the frame. then all I did was wire the treats to that. simple.
Both Robin and Blackie have been 'eying' it up already. Coupled with some meal worms, seeds and suet on the ground, a big fat ball tube hidden in the big tree and some other bits in feeding tubes and bags scattered around, I hope our feathery visitors enjoy their meals this winter. They become my outside buddies through the dark, miserable days and give me great pleasure whilst I craft away in my little space.
What are your buddies up to then?

  1. What a great idea! I bet you have lots of feathered visitors with goodies like that! Thanks for popping in to see me at # 71 WOYWW. Cindy

  2. Third time lucky I hope...having real trouble leaving comments lately. Love the wreath and I bet the birds do too - what a great idea. I posted two pics of Thomas "helping" me craft yesterday - hope it still counts as not a Monday! Lindsay x x
