A fun project!

Since yesterday we did the fruit tasting, I figured I would do these bird feeders that I saw on another blog. I just loved the idea of this feeder so here you have it. I did two though. I made one with the pummelo and with the ugli fruit. Just in case you are wondering, the name of that orange looking fruit is called UGLI and it looks ugly too.
These are wonderful projects and I am hoping to see more birds. The receipe is 1lb. lard and 2cups peanut butter. Melt. Take off heat and add 4 cups bird seed and 2 cups cracked wheat(I put cracked corn).

I didn't find fresh cranberries so I got the frozen kind and left the bag in the fridge till morning. Then I got yarn and then got those cranberries on there. That's it. You just put it outside and wait.

I really don't know what is wrong with my backyard though. It's been almost 2 weeks since any birds have come by. My feeders are full and they still haven't come by. Now I am hoping that with these two colorful and wonderful smelling feeders they will come.

So let's see what I attract now. Can't wait. They look beautiful anyway.

They sure look inviting to me, if I was a bird! Great job. I thought about using frozen cranberries but was afraid they'd be mushy. I should have anyway. Oh well, live and learn.

The birds here have eaten all of the seed pinecone feeders we made, but they haven't touched my cranberry garland yet. Maybe too frozen! :)
