For the Birds...

It has been many years since we made pinecone feeders for the birds, and
Bri and I decided it was high time to do it again! :)

We got some yarn, gathered some pinecones, bought some peanut butter,
dug into our bag of seed in the garage, and we were ready!
It was a little messy, but alot of fun!
Bri shows her technique
We hung them all around the yard, this one is being hung in our pinetree in
the front yard.
We tried to position them so that we can see them from the window

This one is outside our kitchen window

This one in the butterfly bush is visible from the kitchen as well
We didn't have to wait too long until we had some "customers"

This morning we woke up to a "surprise snow"
and the birds were already at the new feeders

The blackbirds swept into the other feeders in droves!
It was lots of fun--we love feeding and watching the birds!

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Matthew 6:26
