And those hungry hungry birdies are insanely messy! Seriously there is seed everywhere!
But they're darn cute so we put up with the mess . . . like with Max . . . and Lee! hahaha
I found this round bird feeder at Canadian Tire, it was way to big to for our little apple tree to hold up, so we needed to figure out another way to make it available to the birdies!
So we found a post from Home Depot and a fence spike (also from The Depot). It was super easy . . . just stick the post in the spike and stick the spike in the ground!
Securing the feeder to the post was easy too, we just used a couple of small L brackets and it was done.
We're hoping to paint it out white or stain it the same color as the fence (when we get around to staining the fence). We're super concerned about using an eco-friendly, non toxic paint as the little birdies will be eating from it! I also want to make sure that it doesn't flake off so maybe a stain is the way to go! If anyone has any bird feeder paint tips I would LOVE to hear them.
And while we're out in the garden with the birdies, I wanted to share with you my new garden shoes! I've got my rubber boots (or RUBBERS as Lee's mom calls them, imagine poor teenage Lee's embarrassment as him mom yells out at the Field trip bus "Lee did you remember Rubbers!!" haha) but for the spring time, some light little shoes are just what I needed. I picked up these ones from TARGET! They are Amazing! They are stupid comfortable ("stupid comfortable" means they're really comfortable). I LOVE them, I love them so much I bought my mom a pair and she Loves them even more than I do, so she bought my grandma a pair too. Grab a pair then shoot me an email and let me know how much you love them too :) hehe
Have a great day, and Happy Gardening!
