Pulling The Birds

We’re all supposed to be planting for the bees, but let’s not forget the birdies while we’re at it. We particularly like a strong architectural element, which sounds lofty until we confess the reason we do is that it allows us to anthropologically imagine they have tiny furniture inside and miniature pictures on their walls. Rather than the probable mess of lice infested twigs and scavenged dryer lint. Nevertheless, what is a garden without bird song and the occasional glimpse of our wonderful British bird population.

Lots of amazing examples to get to, so we hope you become encouraged to feather a little nest out there and make a home for your local flock representative. Here’s a little Bohemian style house – even the birds are getting in on the trends these days.
