In the Bird House

Another of my very favourite garden things are dovecotes. I love these gorgeous little bird houses - unfortunately we've never had a bird take up residence in ours but I live in hope that one day some lovely feathered creatures will call it home.

  1. Oh how i love bird houses. Thanks for the visual feast Leigh.

  2. I love bird houses, I've decided I'm having the top one at the new place.


  3. They look like little dollhouses. So cute.

  4. The birds seem to use our dovecote as a meeting place. They sit in it during the day. Talking? Gossiping? Dispensing advice? Who knows. But they never make nests in there and stay. It's sort of like the local pub, I guess.
