Dear Chicago House,
I am. by nature, an optimistic person. I want to believe that Spring is right around the corner and I will soon be enjoying the hundreds of bulbs I planted in the fall and keeping my fingers crossed that one ones I planted in previous years, survived the wrath of the polar vortex.
I am so ready to get outside and start enjoying a bit of gardening and am currently drawn to anything outdoorsy. In a farm shop I visited the other day I found these treasures… bird shaped bird feeders
The bird’s body gets filled with seeds and it is delivered on the white tray underneath.
This lovely yellow one was my favorite and I would have bought one but I feared the shape of it would give the squirrels that plague my garden, too easy an access …despite using a baffle.
