Bird feeders

The highlight of today was the making of bird seed cones that our grandchildren had seen on a tv programme and asked me to help them make.

Aimee and Jessica organised the whole thing getting us to buy the peanut butter and birdseed and collecting the pine cones which were nicely open after a spell of dry weather.

I tied the string to the cones, with the girl's help and they coated them with peanut butter. They got their hands very sticky and of course had to lick the peanut butter off.

They then rolled the cones in the bird seed.

After this we hung them up on our trees and from the eaves of the garage.
