Playing with birdfeeder designs

I changed my mind about the way i am going to hang the birdfeeders.

I tested out one and although it felt pretty stable with string, i played around with two of them today, leaving one with little steps on either side for the birds to perch on as they feed.

Here is the first design i started with, similar to my chook feeders but a bit more like a traditional birdfeeder with cover from the rain…i like this one too, just not really sure how to glaze this one.

Tai chi and bird feeders

dsc03525

I have had a good night tonight.  I feel all balanced after my tai chi class, where i sometimes remember the moves and sometimes know my left from my right, but not too sure if the bird feeders i made tonite will be balanced.  At least I am 🙂

Normally i would have made 3 points to hang up these birdfeeders but the shape of them didn’t suit it so these ones are a bit of an experiment, will have to see how to string them when they’re done, might have to wire them instead, or just re-design them.

Sunflowers

 

This year i scattered seeds from last year, only a few of them have taken though, so next best thing this year is to make some out of clay.

I dried a few of last years seed heads to plant out again and at the same time i made a couple of bisque molds of the seed heads.  I  have been using them for the centre of my new flowers.

Potting under the tree

Here is the new favourite spot i promised to show you.

Baxter has been keeping me company, i miss him when i’m out there,  but he still thinks he’s on duty and barks his head off..we need to work on that somehow?

I also got my ancient sewing machine out and sewed up a teardrop sign for the roadside too…so i just put it out when i am making something and people can come and have a nosy and a chat 🙂
