Garden gifts from America.

12 August 2014 19:46:00

At the weekend, Alan, Kate ( my sister) and family returned from a holiday in America.Not before the time,and finally decided to take their holiday from work.All went well for the two weeks.I was given a pressie with some of flower and veg seeds which im very thankful for.The thought was there.What i was amazed with was a simple bird feeder to attach to a 2 litre bottle.I got a funnel from the garden shed and the birds think Chistmas came early for them.All done with a small section of steel.Simple,small,attaches perfect,and loved by them.The birds and the bee's they sing so well in flowers and trees.

That feeder is a great idea, John. Let us know how well it does to attract our feathered friends.

Lovely selection of garden goodies. Very thoughtful present.

Lovely presents John, the bird feeder looks interesting.  It's so rewarding to attract birds to the garden.

i really like that simple bird feeder idea and good recycling to benifit the birds, And a nice haul of seeds from another Country makes them all the more special. Fair play to Alan and Kate. :-).

Lucky you John and I'm sure the birds will be singing to their hearts content.
