Becca LOVES to be outside. And she loves watching birds. So this winter on a somewhat warmer day, I made a couple of bird feeders out of milk jugs and Becca helped fill them up with bird seed, and we hung them in a couple of our trees in the front yard. We’ve checked them and refilled them a couple of times, and she’s always so happy to see that the birds have been eating the food she puts out for them. These are super simple, basic feeders – just cut a rectangle in two sides of a paper milk carton, then cut slits a little further down, and fold down a little flap for the birds to sit on. Poke holes in the top for your string, fill them up, and you’re ready to tie them to the tree and go!
And along those lines of appreciating nature, I got these beautiful shots of some of our succulent plants this last week. They are just beautiful –
even ESPECIALLY in the winter cold, which turns them various shades of red and pink. I love living in South Texas and learning how to use native plants in my flower beds!
