I’ve always thought of birds in decorating as dated and not my style. Lately though…thanks to Shalom’s Cottage Home…I’ve been enjoying birds a little more each day.
I picked up this cute little bird box
And…I’m determined to find a functional and savvy way to use this bird planter
and plant stand.
These may be leaving the house soon…
While I was standing in my flower bed behind the garage (talking on the phone). Out of the corner of my eye, I saw two birds swoop over the fence.
Next thing I knew they were flying straight at me…I jumped and screamed! The bird flew straight into my shin! Now…my shins are very little…I’ve been called ‘chicken legs’ or ‘bird legs’ my entire life.
It is now literal!
The bird’s beak apparently hit me so hard it drew blood. Just a bit…but still…blood from a bird hitting you…who has ever heard of such a thing??
Well, I realize my screaming is terrifying the person on the phone and my little man looking on. So…I chill out and walk away from the scene. As I look back the bird is laying there not moving! Now…I’m not going near that bird…
Despite her friendly CPR attempts. It is dead. Now little man is upset because I hurt the bird!
After repeating the story several times, several people become convinced (after laughing at me) that I should call the doctor just to make sure…
The receptionist laughed so hard she had to excuse herself.
I’m sure you are too.
If you are wondering about the other bird…
Several days later I was working deeper into the flower bed and found a dead robin tucked among the grasses.
Did I really kill two birds with one shin?
