In looking around the garden, I see a theme has developed. It's all about the birds and flowers. With approximately one hundred birdhouses, I suppose my collection is now nearing
intervention status! Some are decorative and some are functional with clean-outs, but long ago I found out the birds are the ones who decide which is which. A bossy little house wren has commandeered the gazebo garden where she and her hubby have taken up residence in a blue bird house, chasing any other birds who dare to come near.
Every new flower is an awaiting surprise and , as I stroll our garden, bird song greets me. A red fox streaked across the front lawn this early morning, probably from the cat food on our porch. We've had lovely rains and everything is an intense shade of spring green.

We've already told you of beeswax tealights in shells to remember summer, now let's make beeswax candles. The supplies are beeswax, wicks, double-stick adhesive, essential oils, a wax
pouring pot, thermometer, skewers, jars or metal tins. Cut the wax into small chunks and melt it using a thermometer, the temperature should be between 145° and 175°. Adhere the wicks to the bottom of the tins using double-stick adhesive. Pour the wax into the tins and let the candles cool completely. If you'd like to scent your candles, you'll want to add fragrance once the wax is melted – 1 gram of oil per 1lb of wax. Enjoy your candles!
