How do you relax and unwind at home when you get the chance? For me, it means lying down on our daybed while reading a good book or simply observing my surroundings. And when I just want to sit and watch, I get really entertained by animals roaming around the neighbourhood just going about their business. For some reason it’s very relaxing!
Birds are my favourite, and I wanted to be able to watch them up close. I wanted to better hear the birds sing, so I made a hanging bird feeder with the extra terra cotta flower pot we had to attract them into our yard.
After finishing the DIY flower pot bird feeder, I hung it on the tree we have in our yard. It’s perfect! I can comfortably observe and listen to singing birds from our daybed!
