It has also been well-used. Every year, several pairs of Tree Swallows moved in and raised their families. It is a joy to watch.
|Birdhouse, Last Spring|
True to his word, he did just that. When I returned from my weekend at our church Women's Retreat, he could hardly wait to show me that he had completed his task.
This is what I found!
|Birdhouse, This Fall|
His words to me were, "Doesn't it look just like a Victorian Painted Lady?". Bright orange, bright green & bright blue... I said, "Yes, babe; yes, it sure does!" I gave him a quick kiss on the cheek and then took my luggage into the bedroom to unpack & compose myself.
By the time I was finished unpacking and walked out of the room, I was thankful not only for the newly painted birdhouse, but also for a husband who loves me & wants to give me the desires of my heart! (Obviously that retreat might have been good for me!)
Besides, in a couple of years, it will need to be painted again! :)
