A New Bluebird House

I know it was the weekend and people are busy, so if you missed my latest bird blog post yesterday, click HERE. As most of you know, my birds are very important to me--and I simply adore feeding them and taking their pictures.

When we moved to this house in 2002, we inherited an old Bluebird Nest box. I have no idea how long it had been in the yard---but last year (after taping it together), we knew that we needed to buy a new one. I loved this particular nest box --so I started asking blogger friends if they knew of where I could find a similar one. Thanks to blog friend JAYNE (Journey through Grace), I found out where to order another Bluebird House.

Laurance Sawyer's BLUEBIRD HOUSING in Ellijay, Georgia is the business I called and then ordered my new house. They are custom-made --and the new nest box is exactly what I wanted. IF you are looking for a neat Bluebird House, contact the Sawyers HERE. Or you can call them at 1-888-835-1207.

I hope my Bluebirds like this new box as much as they did the old one. This one is really safer for them since it is not full of holes!!!! I'll keep you posted --as to what the Bluebirds think about their new home!!!! Hopefully, we'll enjoy many Bluebird families here for many years to come. There is a picture of it above and below, of the new nest box.

The first picture at the top of the page is a close-up of the new Bluebird House. This one was taken from the deck---where I will sit with camera in hand --watching the Bluebirds as they go in and out of the box. I cannot wait... (I'll keep you posted I'm sure!!!! ha)


On another note, somebody very close to me has a birthday tomorrow (March 9). Wonder who that could be?????????????

And he HUFFED and he PUFFED... This was taken last year on George's birthday... He had to work really hard to blow out ALL of those candles.... We were in Mt. Nebo this time last year --and had a great birthday trip.

See how happy he was??? I hope he is as happy this year --at the young age of 68!!!!! I tease him about being SO much older than I am. For the record, I won't be 68 until August 5!!!! ha ha

We are headed out today on a short birthday trip (a big surprise for George). The only thing he knows is that it involves waterfalls and good food!!!!! We'll be back on Thursday --and I'll post again on Friday (March 12). Hopefully, I'll have some great birthday pictures to share!!!!

In the meantime, why don't you pop over to George's blog (click HERE) and wish him a very Happy Birthday??!! I don't know whether we will have internet service in the mountains --but I will have the laptop with me and George has his iPod Touch, if we do!!!!

Hope you have a wonderful week.
