Bird Houses

These are my new birdhouses my hubby made me last month.  They are made of old railroad ties.  He is so talented!  We even made a smaller set and donated it to a church auction.  I love them!

Here is a close up of the holes and the old rusty nails we used as perches.  Everything we used was recycled, we found most of the items in our yard/garage.

This is a cute old washtub Lloyd found while rock-chuck hunting.  I love it for my flower-bed.  You can see the small Ivy we put 4 in each flower-bed, hopefully next year they will have filled out a bit more.  Lloyd faithfully 'miracle grows' each one every week.

Another tub that was found while hunting.  We also planted a vine that should grow and latch onto our chimney and cover the whole thing eventually.  Can't wait!

This used to be all grass, we killed it, tilled it, and filled them with dirt (each side of our porch) and planted the ivy.  I found some rock in the garage and we put it around the edges for a border.

Here is a close-up of the rock/stone that we used to edge the beds.  I love the look, but I also love the price of FREE!
