Bird feeders ~

I have never had bird feeders in my garden before, I was always convinced that in our mild climate the garden alone provided plenty of food for the visiting birds and over the years I have tried to plant things that would facilitate that. 

Then I recently read that hanging bird feeders outside of your windows was a good way to keep house cats entertained...and to feed wild birds at the same time.

So, in what begin as an attempt to have a happier Miss Tiggley, I now have several bird feeders in the garden...outside of the bay window in the entry hall...

another by the kitchen...

and for Mother's Day I received a very charming humming bird feeder as a gift.

I decided to put this one by the Tree Man to keep him company, Miss Twiggley and I can also watch the action from the office

I really did this for Miss Twiggley and it certainly is keeping her entertained, but I can't tell you how much I am enjoying watching the birds too. Now I must get a book on the birds of our area so I can start to identify these wonderful creatures.

I just filled the humming bird feeder this morning, I wonder how long it will be before they discover it...we will see!

Thank you for visiting


  1. Your garden is such a beautiful place and the bird feeders you've chosen add to the beauty. I hope you see lots and lots of birds flitting about.

  2. Adrienne, I think the feeders and their little visitors will enhance your beautiful garden as well as Miss Twiggley's life. They are fun to watch..Happy Thursday..Judy

  3. Miss Twiggley must be so happy. We've been trying to keep our feeders filled but we have three raccoons that insist on emptying it every single night. Yesterday, my husband even lathered the feeder pole with vegetable grease. They still found a way to jump from Josie's swing set onto the feeder and tear it open! Our cats are finding the raccoons to be naughty entertainment.
