The tiny little bird perched on the fence and turned her head to the side, the worm wiggling in her beak, I was standing only a few feet away, watering my shade garden, and I was sure that she wanted some water.

My Dad made this bird house years ago, you can read about the Bird house project here, after we moved here we placed it on a 7 foot tall pole in the new shade garden beside the house.

We just put it up a few months ago and thought that it would be vacant for many seasons before an occupant decided to give it a try.

She flew in and out with tasty bugs for her babies oblivious to my watering just below her new home. Lime green leaves of the golden hops twine the pole hoping one day to surround the house in the sky.
