Today I made a wreath for the birds. It adds a wonderful splash of cheerful color to an otherwise drab winter landscape.
The pine cones were collected over 10 years ago from my former home in Alabama. I dipped them in melted lard and peanut butter and rolled them in bird seed.
It took about five to ten minutes before the sparrow started eating. I need to set up the tripod to get some better pictures, but I was pretty excited to have a guest that soon. I am hoping that a male cardinal will land on the wreath. That will be very sweet!
I made another wreath and threaded popcorn, peanuts and dried cherries. I hope to have that in place tomorrow.
