Dot always has places near where she lives and works to show me when I visit. She thought I'd like this because I'm always getting bird houses for my mom to paint and put in her yard.
I'm sure the people that hung all the houses are aware that an appreciative audience like the two of us would be taking pictures, not checking out the neighborhood for some other motive.
Bare winter branches made it easier to include as many bird houses as I could in each shot.
They were up higher than I would be able to reach on a good sturdy ladder. And I have the good sense to know I wouldn't be climbing one anyway!!
Each one looked different to me. Certainly was a gray day...
Now on my next trip to town (think 45 miles one way), I'll be looking for unpainted houses for my mom to work some magic on. Hope I have a coupon for 40% off in my email. ♥♪

That is alot of birdhouses!!!!
That is so awesome, isn't it fun to run into something so whimsical!!!!!

Kim said...

Wow- that is so cool! I wonder if any of them have inhabitants or if they are too close together. I bet others have stopped to take pictures too- I sure would if I came across all those birdhouses!

How 'tweet';(couldn't resist)!~Hehe..,

Yet I am enthralled by all of those precious and lovely birdhouse's in that tree!~ How charming and so loving and thoughtful for the birds!

It's hard to say exactly how many that the owners of those adorable birdhouses would actually refill with seed, yet hopefully enough to feed the darlings quite regularly!

I adore birds and especially enjoy birdsong..,Thanks so much for sharing the pistures with us!

I have just become a follower of your lovely blog; perhaps you will do the same for me; I'd love to have you visit!..,

Hi Marilyn...

I'm so glad that you stopped by for a visit, my friend! I came by your blog very early this morning...I had been searching for fellow Colorado bloggers when I came across your delightful blog! Normally I leave a note...instead of "stalking", but I think I got side-tracked with coffee or something! Hehe! Anyway...I was just so excited to find you and you are fairly close to me! I'm living about 25 east of Sterling. I have been blogging for a couple of years now and have only found 4 other Co. it's very nice to meet you!!!

Well my friend, I had alot of fun touring your blog! I loved your posts about the Barn Quilts in Morgan County...I think that's fabulous! Of course I haven't been in Ft. Morgan that many times but I've never seen any of the Barn I'll be keeping my eye out!

I read your profile and see that you are a teacher. I recently took an early retirement from the Fleming School. I worked with the special needs students...specifically an autistic young man! There are times that I miss school and yet, I am sooo enjoying getting to be home and play house! Hehe! Well my new found friend, let's stay in touch! I have found this experience of blogging so enjoyable and have met and made so many friends! So happy to meet you, Marilyn!!!

Warmest wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design
