Why do they make bird feeders that rush the birds away?  My husband has helped me this winter to make the bird feeders better.  I don't get out and about as often as I would like to so I wanted to…Continue

That thing wouldn't last long around here with all the high winds. We've had 50ish mph winds for a few days now.

Birdie are you thinking of iris moss?

Birdie I planted some of the steppables but they didn't last long...I think it was too sunny for them...however there was some kind of wild grassy plant that came up between my brick that comes back every year...have no idea what it is called, something native to our area. You should be able to find something that works.

@Beth, I am gonna try stepables, a moss of sorts that look like mini ferns. Don't know name. Will post when planted! Thanks Beth and happy gardening!

love your walkway Birdie...I can just see it now with the grass in between.  They have that steppable moss and plants at our local gardening center that would do well too.

Laid these yesterday, still a bit muddy. Used old brick, natural stone and old slabs of concrete to make. A lot of work but will be worth it. Gonna add moss in between after I get home from Hawaii!

Jan. I did a mosaic with sanded grout around the sides using some gorgeous flowered broken tile.  I don't really plan to put the bird house outside...just for fun piece..it would have to be a real regal bird to take up residence in this house!!

Cindy, I'm gonna try the mineral bottle on my Dahlias and other pots...

Margret, I haven't see you lately and missed you, did you get the Glass windows put anywhere yet?

I went to visit another Garden Share friend I met here from my town... only 2000 people in town and I meet someone from Garden Share... anyhow she has such great ideas... I went over to check out her lighting under her kitchen cabinets, I gotta do it... it is so nice..... after seeing her kitchen and house I was enthused about all my work to organize myself... she has cute vignettes everywhere and she loves twinkle lights and candles... such an inspiration.
