Gone bonkers–for the birds!! Yesterday I purchased bird houses (and more bird feed). I learned (from retailers) that it is not “too early” to hang bird houses. ~~ $30. for the one made from Branches, from World Market; $37. for the “made in America” recycled plastic (green) Blue bird house; Chicken, and Boot, less than $20. each because clearance items at Hobby Lobby; $5. each for the “edible” thatched-roof birdhouses from Ollie’s. ~~ Yes, two new Shepherd’s hooks (“on sale” Spring merchandise at Hobby Lobby)!!
Postscript, Feb. 3, 2012: I just discovered Garden Ridge and bought more items for my backyard. Hey, I can afford their merchandise!!
