A few months ago, I pinned this adorable teacup repurposed as a suet feeder for birds:
I actually made a whole bunch before Christmas and gave them as gifts. I did however hold a few back for myself. They've been sitting in the garage, me too lazy to get a piece of ribbon to hang them with.
The meteorological arrival of Spring on March 1st seemed to coincide with the arrival of a whole bunch of hungry birds so I figured I'd better fill the birdfeeder and finally, hang the teacup suet feeder.
Perhaps the reason I kept putting off going to this garden bed was the fact that it looked like this:Thanks to Nemo, we have countless limbs and branches down around the yard. Apparently it is also time to take down my mini picket fence... I stood the birdbath up, filled the bird feeder, and finally, hung the teacup.
By the time I got back in the house, at least 10 birds (mostly chickadees, a woodpecker or two) swooped in for some grub. At the birdfeeder.
All day yesterday, the birds ignored my teacup suet. I was bracing myself for another #PinterestFail. All was redeemed this morning when I saw several birds taking a turn in the teacup. Maybe tomorrow I'll bust out my real camera with the zoom lens and try to get a picture...
Hurray Pinterest, hurray birds and hurray Spring!
