Can you hear the birds? What a wonderful sound! Our resident birds are busy preparing their nests for their little ones that will soon be making their entrance into the world.
Last year we had a pair of Bluebirds that were trying to take over a Sparrow family's nest. Well this year the Bluebirds found their own home, right on our side porch. There was once a door here but the previous owners closed the door and had these shelves made. I had a birdhouse that Tim made sitting on the one shelf and the Bluebirds decided to move in and they have been busy flying in and out of the birdhouse. I am surprised that they have made their home so close to us...but I am not complaining because it is so nice to be able to be so close to watch them.
Mr Bluebird checking out his new home.
Mrs Bluebird making sure she likes her new home!
Two years ago I bought these two pottery bird houses and this is the first year that we had birds move into them. The new residents in the pottery bird house are sparrows. I was hoping to get some wrens but so far I don't see or hear any near by. Last year we had some wrens find a home in on of our birdhouses but they haven't returned this year. I hope they come back!
We asked Bob the Potter to make some of these bird bottle houses for our customers at The Brickhouse and he did! Stop by the Shop and see Bob's pottery! You will love them!
Yesterday, Tim and I drove to Lebanon to pick up our candle order from PA SOY. It was so nice seeing Richard and Carolyn again. And I enjoyed smelling all the new scents! Carolyn was trying out some new scents and she gave us two new scents to test burn for her. So when you stop by the Shop this week you will be able to smell the new scents because we will be testing them in the Shop. Today after I mow the lawn I will be in the Shop unpacking the candles and also moving the Easter items out of the Shop and change some things around. I need to get together with my Crafters and get some new goodies in the Shop. Tim and I have been busy making birdhouses and signs. Tim is also working on some new things and I will be showing you some pictures this week. I love what he is making and I sure hope he makes some for me!
I better get outside and start mowing the grass...the first cut of the year! How I love this weather! I hope you all get a chance to enjoy it today. And remember to stop by The Brickhouse and smell the candles and watch the birds!
