Along the back of our yard we have five circles. The first circle contains a birdhouse which has been used by the wrens this year, Joe Pye Weed, catmint, a moon flower vine climbing up the birdhouse and a wonderful plow we found in Lacon.
This shows the birdhouse and plow up close. All of our beds have been ringed with brick and are heavily mulched.
The bird house on the arch (which came from an old portable greenhouse) was occupied by chickadees this year. We believe a wren got into the box and pulled all the baby chickadees out and left them on the ground to die. One was still alive when we found them so I put it back in the box but we don't believe the chickadees ever came back.
