With the weather as nice as it, I've been out walking Mags and viewing the yard. Seeing everything it gave me a few ideas for new projects, and I decided to take some pictures of some of the older projects that we've completed. First is one of the things I saw today and decided to under take. I decided to keep the trunk of our Christmas tree this year and use it in the yard. I like the rustic look of a trunk that's had all the limbs cut off it. Melissa and I have had this Auburn Bird house laying around for at least a year so I decided I'd mount it to the stump. I did this awhile ago, so that's not the new part. With all the storms we've been having our bottle tree got blown over and it broke the tree. So I got the idea to take the bottles from the broken bottle tree and put them under the bird house on the old Christmas tree trunk. I like the way it turned out. I guess Melissa and I need to drink some more wine so I can finish the rest of the tree. If anyone has any Blue wine bottles that you can part with please let us know. Our single blue bottle broke when the tree fell. I'm very heart broken over this because Blue is my favorite color.
at the end of the planting season last year K-Mart had a huge sale on all their trees. We wanted some kind of flowering tree for the front of our house so we scooped up these three Bradford Pears.
