I hope the birds like me.....

Dear Son #2 and I made filled the orange "bowls" tonight with homemade suet.

He's concentrating really hard.

Here are a few of them finished and ready to hang. There are 14 in all.

A not too clear picture of the tree after I put the orange cups on it. It was dark and my camera doesn't take pictures too well at night.

And finally a picture of the cups at work. The mix has lard, wheat flour, corn meal, sugar, bird seed, peanut butter and dried cranberries. Who could refuse a meal like that?! I hope we have some visitors soon.

Blessings, Cathi

How fun to see your son helping feed the birdies!

Years ago an elderly neighbor asked if they could have our used Christmas tree that we had at the curb. I thought OMG....it is past Christmas and they never had a tree....first thought anyway. Then she told me they like to put them in the yard with popcorn and such for the birds. You brought back a sweet memory with this post.

I love those orange cups. Would you tell me exactly how you make them? My birds say "HI and THANKS!" in advance. I am such a bird watcher. I have my sewing machine pointed out my picture window with a clear view of all my feeders.
