What a coincedence you should mention this, Mary Sue. John cleaned out the last bird house yesterday, a very small one that we had hung as a decoration but apparently some birds used it last year to raise a family. The 'nest' was made up of very small dead pine twigs, several kinds of painted and unpainted old bent nails, large staples, several 1 1/2 inch drywall-type screws, couple of old paperclips, AND that wire horseshoe thing that goes onto the hose sprayer that locks the spray to ON (I've been looking all over for that for months). Apparently some of the nuthatches are members of the ironworkers union. Cathy Craig President PBS Maritime zone 9b Five > of the plant tags made out of old blinds are missing in my tulip pots.
