The 'After' Pictures- Found Objects Made New Again

As promised, after many rained out weekends and family life in between, the pictures of my recycled found objects are ready for your viewing pleasure. You may remember the dilapidated ladder and old wooden benches from Recycling Found Objects Into Garden Masterpieces.  They are now a prominent part of the yard and have a place to call home.

All the pieces I worked with were either left to rot and waiting to be rescued, or taking up space in the shed with no purpose at all.

Spread Your Wings And Fly

Our crow family has been preparing for the big day when the fledglings are ready to leave the nest.  Momma has been very busy feeding her little ones (three of them, to be exact), who get to be almost as big as she is when the time comes for the leap towards nearby branches.

Earlier this spring, we noticed the adult pair building a nest atop our towering pine tree.  It only took them days to create the monstrous home where the female would stay until her babies were fully grown.  Even through the ice and snow of early May, she stayed with the tiny nestlings, keeping them warm and relying on Dad for feedings and guarding the area around them.
