{HOME SWEET HOME}

Not only for both of us and our felines we got a roof above our head, but also for our many garden birds.
Have a look at this very cute HOME SWEET HOME Bird House that we received as a gift from our German 'Son' and his family. We hung it on our Holly tree so we can see it from the kitchen bay window and from the veranda. It has been a favorite with birds!
Indeed: HOME SWEET HOME
Here you see the gazebo in view, still with the old roof on...
Just to put it into perspective, here you can see the HOME SWEET HOME Bird House against the stem of the holly tree. Nice at eye level for us to watch the Carolina wrens fly in and out while we enjoy breakfast or have our tea in the veranda.
Also the hummingbird feeder (one of several) is next to the bay window and in view.
Do you have any bird houses within view at your home? Or hummingbird feeders?

  12. Dearest Mariette,
    The bird house is perfect next to the holly tree; it contrasts and blends with the tree trunk. The birdies are definitely living in style! And you get to watch them from your petty bay window!
    I don't think I've mentioned it before but the color of your house is perfect. I love the contrast between the house and trim. Each makes the other pop.
    I think I would want to live in your gazebo. It's all most enticing!
    With wishes that you are drying out a bit..........*s*

  15. Good Evening Mariette, Firstly, I wanted to say thank you so much for telling me the name of my mysterious plant which I grew in Cyprus. I have made a note of it, Wisteria Frutescens, Amethyst Falls. I can see why it is named so, as the flowers do look like little Amethysts. It was such an easy and beautiful plant to grow.

    Your little bird house is such a wonderful gift and to watch the birds popping in and out whilst you drink your tea must be lovely.

    George is busy building me a bird house at the moment, ready for the Autumn when food will be scarce for the birds. He is also making me a little insect home where stray bees and insects can hibernate for the winter. I encourage a lot of wildlife into my garden during the summer, so the least I can do is care for them during the winter.
    Best Wishes
    Daphne

    1. Dearest Daphne,
      You are most welcome for that beautiful Wisteria's name!
      Indeed this bird house is a perfect gift that keeps on giving in a way.
      At breakfast, lunch or whatever we can observe those wrens that occupy their special home.
      We also do provide food and shelter for our wildlife and that earned us our Backyard Wildlife HABITAT Certificate from August 1997.
      Have a lovely continuation of the week.

  16. Lieve Mariette,

    Altijd leuk om te ontdekken dat in de tuin opgehangen vogelhuisjes ook bewoond worden,het schijnt zo te zijn dat dergelijke huisjes op de juiste plek moeten hangen om als nestkastje uitverkoren te worden bij verschillende soorten vogeltjes.
    Bij jullie voldoet het aan al die eisen want jullie zagen het met eigen ogen.

    Hier hangen ook verschillende vogelhuisjes en er is er één bij wat elk jaar gebruikt wordt door pimpelmezen koppeltje.
    De rest van de vogels als merels en mussen maken in de dikke Hedera heggen hun nesten,gemoedelijk naast elkaar.
    In de meeste gevallen is het nestkastje niet de eerste keuze voor een koppeltje,maar of er in de omgeving genoeg natuurlijk voedsel te vinden is om straks hun jongen te voeren.
    Daarvan is in jullie grote tuin vast genoeg te vinden.
    In ons kleine stadstuintje ook,overal staan potjes,mandjes,stapeltjes stenen,afgevallen blad etc. waar ze insecten en wormpjes kunnen scharrelen voor de kost.
    Tegen de tijd dat de vogels gaan nestelen gaat alle wintervoer zoals vetbollen en pindaslingers,zaden,pindakaaspot, stukjes appel en brood weg, zodat de vogels niet hun jongen daarmee gaan voeren,want dat overleven die jonkies niet.

    Lieve groet!!
    Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Jij zou ook het certificate ontvangen wat wij in 1997 ontvingen van Backyard Wildlife HABITAT. Inderdaad is het veel meer gericht op het juiste voedsel voor elk type vogel of dier. Wij zagen al járen onze winterkoninkjes insekten en spinnetjes vangen tussen de prostrate gardenia struikjes die ook bij de veranda en erker zijde groeien. Dus dáár kwam ook hun nestkastje en het is perfekt gekozen. Ze zijn altijd zó ijverig en zó snel in hun bewegeginkjes. Ik noem ze 'schatjes'...
      De natuurlijke omgeving moet alles bieden om te kunnen overleven, zelfs ook om nestmateriaal te vinden.
      Lieve groetjes,
      Mariette

      Thank you SOOOO much! Yes, we are fortunate for having been raised to appreciate nature and when that is instilled in you as a child; you are programmed for life! We enjoy them so much, especially those tiny wrens are so hyper and cute when they look for spiders and bugs to feed on.
      Hugs to you from a wet Georgia as again it's pouring down after about 4 days without rain...

  19. Goede morgen Mariette,
    wat leuk dat vogelhuisje!
    Ik vind vogelhuisjes ook erg leuk,
    en heb er ook een aantal, maar gewoon
    bij elkaar op een plank staan, omdat we
    ten eerste niet zoveel bomen hebben om ze in te hangen
    en ook vanwege onze katten.
    Dus nu maar gewoon voor de sier.

      Nee wij hebben ze níet voor de sier maar om de vogeltjes bescherming te bieden tegen weer en wind en ze worden overal ook gretig gebruikt. Ook wij hebben poezen maar evengoed véél vogels op ons landgoed. Dat kan goed samen gaan.
      Groetjes,
