Walkabout Wednesday

I am ashamed to admit, there has not been much walking in the past week. Work has kept me extra busy, and when I have had time to take a lunch, Dave and I have had to run into the city for something or other.

That’s not to say I haven’t been getting exercise… I think moving that motorcycle was worth at least three days of walking! But it means I haven’t been out taking pictures of our weird and wonderful little town.

Happily, I do have some pictures saved up from previous walks.

Just past the middle of town, there’s a bridge that goes over a little ravine/hydro corridor. On the railings of that bridge, there are these:

Little metal bird houses with planter boxes below them. I’m pretty sure those planter boxes were full last summer, though for the life of me, I can’t remember what kind of plants they held. I’ll have to keep an eye on them and get new pictures for you when they are planted up again.

Regardless, I think it’s a fun little bit of whimsy in this quirky little town.

    I love to see birdhouses. They remind me of my great grandmother’s house. She always had some in her yard. She also had a goldfish pond and a pump house that had a real hand cranked water pump from a well that I thought was the coolest thing ever. It’s hard to believe all that is now the middle of a big industrial area outside Washington DC. They tore the house down when we sold it. In just my lifetime things have sure changed-and none for the better it seems.


  2. Attended a bird-watching seminar on Zoom last night, hosted by two regular guys who enjoy wandering around with their binoculars to watch our feathered friends. They discussed bird-feeders too, and the one’s you’ve posted are adorable!


  3. I love the bird feeders with the planter boxes underneath. What a fabulous idea! I hope you’ll take pictures later once there are plants in the boxes!!


  4. I love your quirky little town.

    Our town decorates the bridge over the creek several times a year. I’ll have to get pictures this year. (Not as cute as your birdhouses, but not bad.)


  5. What fun little birdhouses. I think I would enjoy living in your quirky little town. I can just see lots of flowers growing out of those boxes and birds flying in and out. I would love to have bird houses too, but Dennis isn’t fond of them. Too much poo left on outdoor furniture in his opinion when we feed them.
