Rustic, old birdhouse !

A VERY rustic, old birdhouse 
in the garden.
As long as the roof doesn't leak,
it's good !

Enjoy your day, my friends...


  1. Wow those tomatoes are amazing !! Yummy !!! Love your bird house too , great photo !!!

  2. Pumpkins on a stick is just so darn cool.
    GREAT pic of those hungry mouths!

  3. Loved the photos. Is the Pumpkin on a Stick edible? I'll have to search more info on it. Thanks for shariing

    1. The Pumpkin on a Stick is indeed edible. It is often used in Asian stirfry.
      It is slightly bitter. I won't be trying that, but I do plan to strip the leaves, cut the stems at the base, and allow them to dry.

  4. Love the pumpkin on a stick plants! I'd love those in my front garden.

  5. Interesting plants! Never heard of a 'pumpkin on a stick'! LOVE the roof of the birdhouse, the angles the way they are cut in is fantastic. Have saved a reference photo for when it cools off I'm going to try to make one or two in my little garage wood shop! :)

  6. lol! Those sure are some BIG mouths in that little birdhouse! :-)

  7. Those pumpkins on a stick are cool! Your bag is nice too! Janice

  8. As always great pictures. That little bird mouth is great.
    The pumpkins look like tomatoes we had.
    We finally got rain today but not enough to stop the drought and damage to crops.


So glad to have you here visiting...
