Potting Shed Secrets

Secrets in a Potting Shed? You bet. Just check out the “magic” I found in my sister, Sheila’s potting shed. You can just imagine my surprise when I walked into her garden shed and found a bird nest mecca.

These potting shed creations have been collected by Sheila for some time now. Her husband Dew, was involved with yard maintenance for several years…. always on the look out for another bird nest for the potting shed collection. Sheila is continually looking for a new find… checking out tree limbs and bushes.

Bird nests of all sizes have been carefully placed on shelves… the smallest being a humming bird’s nest. All together, they make a breathtaking site when you open the door. What a collection!

P.S. I would have never thought of having a collection of bird’s nests… let alone display them in a potting shed. This idea certainly lends itself to Sheila and Dew’s country home and pastoral surroundings in rural Wallsburg, Utah.

I love it! House finches built a nest in the wreath on my front door this spring and we were able to watch the whole process of the eggs being laid, tended and hatched. Then we watched as the babies grew, were nurtured and then flew away. It was fascinating and a sweet experience.

Not sure I think collecting bird nests is a great idea. Number one: because of infectious diseases they can carry. Number two: how would you like to pull in your driveway only to discover your house is gone and all the work you put into and someone just came along and took away. Now you have to start over from scratch. Poor birds.
