Birds Corner.

In the garden we have an old, wooden birdhouse which we fill with seeds and bread crumbs every day. The birds know about this special corner of The Blue Café and are regulars. But often when they come their corner is already occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Squirrel and one or more of their kids. The birds wait in line, some days patiently, some days making alot of noise and even starting small fights.

I want everybody to feel welcome in The Blue Café, and when I came over this ceramic house a few weeks ago, I knew it would be a perfect extention in my outdoor serving area. It is not big, and helds no more than one or two birds at a time, but it's a perfect waiting room, or may be I shall call it a bar, where the guests can have a starter while waiting for their favorite feeder to be free.

A lovely birdhouse you have! Besides, thank you for your comment on my blog. I'm fond of cooking books too and have a collection of it! I'll now pass to your blue café!

I absolutely adore, admire and (oh dear) covet your new birdhouse! What a cute idea. The squirrels may find it also, but at least they can't be pigs and get inside!

Britt Arnhild, Yeah for you feeding the birds. I feed my birds every morning before I leave the house for work. The suirrels of course partake too. Love the little feeder and I'm sure the birds do too.
