Winter is for the birds...

I love the gentle quiet that winter provides. It's time to take a look back at what worked well, what needs tweaking, what we can hope to do next spring. And a time to be grateful for the space winter opens up in our minds and hearts.
So, the birds....
Our school garden club made some simple pine-cone feeders with peanut butter and bird seed.
pine cones, string or yarn, peanut butter, tongue depressors, bird seed, newspaper, patience
                                              Spread newspaper on table (We forgot this.).

 Tie string to pinecones.                                          
        Smear peanut-butter on cones.
Dredge cones in bird seed.
Hang cones from tree.
                                                 Watch the birds discover the feast.
