This has been a fun project..A little more decorated than I prefer..But I got carried away and now I like it.I know exactly where it is going..On the porch of the Potting Shed on a table in between 2 children's wicker chairs..The back part is hollow..To put a plant..The roof is one of the extra plain shingles from here that I cut up to look like a roof..The decorative spindle on top Luc at my office made for me..The sides have little dodads too..But hard to photo at night..I'll show you this summer with impatiens in them.
It is in honor of all the Garden Buddies.And I really liked EJ's idea about the sign..I couldn't make a flag.Hope you like it..I'll be thinking of all of you when I look at it..

A very welcoming home...and not just for the birds

Is that your brug leaping ahead with its spring growth?Isn't it amazing how fast they "leaf out" once they get going for the new season!

I like that...the decorating on it is perfect. I can't picture where the impatiens will go though.

Now I see, thanks Monique. That will look extra lovely when you get it planted. May I ask what that sweet little house is on the window ledge?

Wow Monique..... those brugs will soon be up to the ceiling :-) Just as an experiment, I clipped off a few of my top-growth branches and plunked them into another pot of wet soil along with some rooting powder and sofar they are growing.

I like the idea of a `little garden out back` for your Buddy Birdhouse

Now I get it! And I see more detail along the side too.
That will match your potting shed nicely.
