I can always tell that spring has arrived when I no longer need an alarm clock because I am awoken by the sweet melody of singing birds. This just may be the best part of spring! I currently have a single birdhouse in my backyard but I have been wanting to add additional houses to offer different food and attract a variety of birds. I want the house to be a comfortable rest stop for the birds but I also need it to conform to the rest of the backyard. After some thought and research I realized that if I add some succulents to a neutral birdhouse it could create just the look I was going for!
I always prefer to roll my sleeves up and get a little dirty if I have the possibility of getting the results I can’t find anywhere else so I’m deciding to build the birdhouse myself. Here are some of my inspirations:
|I love the idea to including the Burrito Sedum in this collection so that as it grows it will trail down the top of the house.|
|Maybe starting off small like this petite birdhouse may be the way to go!|
|This unique birdhouse caught my eye however I would want to fill it with only succulents, no other foliage.|
Hopefully I haven’t bitten off more than I can chew. Get inspired and build your own. There are so many different varieties of succulent out there that I am sure you will find some that fit your style.
Wish me luck!
