My new Mothers Day present finally finished and sitting in the garden! Yes before anyone asks, it’s another birdhouse design, I seem to like birdhouses! LOL!

My naughty girls are busy looking for something to eat.

    and what a beautiful place it is .. wonderful capture Gabe beautiful lighting

  • Awwh thank you Maggie, I took this early this morning. I had the girls following me around the garden, mum will give us a snail or two. I have no more snails? LOL! Good isn’t it! I did notice that the snails have addapted and gone high in the bushes, higher than the girls can reach, so it does show some intelligence, me thinks! lOL!

    That is a perfect present for you. Now you can sit on your birdhouse chair and look around for your next photo … whether it be the birdhouses or the farmyard.

  • Hi Christina, thank you! :) Yes hubby was building it for me and then had enough so I had to finish it myself. Lucky I know my way around the power tools. He recons I’m not his mother so he couldn’t work out why he had to build this for me on Mothers Day! lOL! Kiri was suppose to paint it but that didn’t happen.

    I made sure that the arms can carry the cuppa too! Come on over and we can maybe find a bug macro or two. There’s not much in the garden at the moment? :(

    And the ducks like it too.

  • Hi Al, my girls are funny, they hide under it and look for spiders but it’s new and there is no spiders, they do it to all the chairs in the garden, yes creatures of habit. LOL!

    How are you buddy? Freeeeezing?

    Love the garden seat Gabe with the ducks and beautiful colours of the fallen leaves. Well done.

  • Thank you Ralph, now I did build this seat! Hubby cut the legs out for me and I pretty well made the rest. Don’t look too hard at my painting job, it’s Shabby Chic! LOL! I took this early this morning, the light was nice.

    You are a pretty handy woman Gabe. Great job.

  • Hahaa! Only sometimes! Hubby recons I’m always dreaming up some new project for him and I should let him go fishing more often! LOL! I would but he couldn’t catch a fish if his life depended upon it! lOL! There is no fish anymore? :(

    There are those naughty ducks again. :o) What a lovely Mothers Day gift. Looks at home there. I could sit there for awhile.

  • Hi Barb, this is that seat I was telling you about way before I had finished. It was a few hours to build but it’s a very comfortable chair to sit in and I made sure that the arm rests could hold a cuppa! Come on over, I’ll put the kettle on!

    I can imagine sitting there with your nice teacups. Thought of you yesterday at the markets. One lady had some gorgeous sets. ;o)

  • Oh I’ve been naughty again, I put a bid on one on ebay and won it. Another one coming from the UK. I’ll promise to be good. When are you coming over for a cuppa?

    Put the kettle on for me too! It is such an inviting scene.
