Bird House

birdhouse

Good friends of mine decorate their gardens with whimsical, unexpected things: a metal sculpture of praying mantises, an exquisite enameled birdbath, a rock painted with flowers. This delightful bird house hangs from a tree and clearly invites actual birds to visit, but I fell in love with how it miniaturizes a human house. There are shutters on the windows, a knob on the door, and tiny flowers in the tiny flower boxes. It makes me smile.
