I had to clean out some dead branches from an area in my yard. The tops of the trees are beautiful and provide lots of privacy but the bottoms of the trees had lots of dead branches. I often noticed little birds hanging out in the trees. I thought these teacup bird feeders would be a great way to add to the empty space and bring more of those lovely little birds to the trees. I have a few more plans for this space as it leads to a pathway of wild blackberry bushes.
I purchased all the cups and saucers from a thrift shop. I also found beads and ribbons to use for hangers. The glue I picked up at a hardware store. I selected glue that was waterproof. A glue gun would work as well.
I am back from a wonderful vacation and jumped right back into work and getting my classroom together and preparing for my new teaching position. Here is one shot I took of the bride and groom at the campground wedding we had. I became the official amateur photographer. It was so fun!
Our friends announced they are getting married the week we will be away camping at a beautiful beach. They are having a beach wedding followed by a big party in the campground. I have to say it is a first for me but I am looking forward to it. We are all helping with the planning and preparations and I took on the place settings. Now, your not going to take silver and crystal to an outdoor camping event but how about plastic and paper.

Now here is what I did…
I am back today from 10 days of camping in a National Park. It was wonderful to connect with nature, friends and of course family. I have so much catching up to do and here I thought I would have so much more time to blog in the Summer. Follow my instagram account to check out some pic of my camping adventures. Hope to get more pics up soon.
This hike was so beautiful we did it twice.
Has it really been 8 days since I have blogged? Yikes! I didn’t know how much I was missing it until now. Eight day is way to long to be away.
Had a great birthday and we celebrated again this weekend. Some gifties Mother’s Day/Birthday
My long-time birthday buddy
We went camping this weekend and did a wonderful family hike of 15 km. More beautiful pictures to share.
Today’s hike was just hubs and I who’s name I should tell you is Chris. We went for a shorter hike today in a more urban area. It was along a river that has been under restoration for the last few years and is making good progress. This river does flood its banks in some areas thankfully no homes are at risk. With the melting snow and Spring rain showers the river was high and flowing fast.
