The winter of '09 played havoc with the bird houses behind my rock wall garden. I found most of them on the ground. I really like how this triple decker fell. In fact I plan to leave it as is so the top of the birdhouse will peek above the flowers.
This weathered white one is still attached to the tree. It pretty beat up, but I think it has patina.
This one has flipped upside down.
This one fell right off the tree, too. It looks like a squirrel had its home here.
The hens/chicks on the big piece of driftwood survived as they always do.
They are amazing little plants that survive the harshest conditions.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
