Bird sanctuary in your garden

If you have trees near your garden area and want to spruce things up a little with no out of pocket expense, I have placed several  "no cost:" bird houses on the tree as a bird sanctuary. I simply took old wood from either what I had lying around OR from my neighbor who had weathered wood out for the trash. It is easy and fun and adds life to the garden. There is nothing like sipping on a cup of coffee or tea in the early morning and watching the birds while admiring your garden.
We also added some ferns to enhance  the tree house appearance.
It's cheap, fun and looks great!
And of course, the Birds need a place to bath
