Quick video of the Magic Cottage Backyard

Hello everyone.  My apologies for not blogging on Wednesday!  I only had 3 hours sleep (menopause and ADD issues) plus i had to attend a super early morning networking meeting.  Needless to say i was too bagged to function when i got back home. Sorry.

I went on Facebook the other day and asked my peeps what i should do with my pumpkin – eat it or compost it.  I received a bunch of great ideas including “don’t eat it, these pumpkins are not meant for eating”……the candle would make the inside of the pumpkin toxic, make it into soup, make it into a birdfeeder.  Ultimately as you can see i lopped off part of the pumpkin and filled it with birdseed so it could become an organic birdfeeder.

The birds really loved it and also the squirrels.  I quickly tried to capture a video of a squirrel totally immersed in the pumpkin enjoying a gluttonous feast. As you can see i scared him away………but……..

I videoed this short piece of the backyard highlighting some of the crafts I have created with Mr. G and family!

Well that’s it folks for today – I’m off to visit my grandkids!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Love, Violette xo
