|Deluxe chalet with garden view||Cozy cottage at wood’s edge||Fun and funky outhouse motif||Nature lovers’ retreat|
We have four apartments for rent in or near the St. Francis Garden. Yesterday a little chickadee was taking advantage of the nice weather and was out doing some apartment hunting.
I think we’re going to have a new tenant soon.

We have several bird feeders and a bird bath but not houses. These are adorable. Hope you get lots of tenants!
Me too. Last year we had a chickadee in the acorn bird house. It was wonderful having the birdsong every day so close by.
They beat me to it, so now I have to look somewhere else for renting. L.O.L.
Well, no one has signed any contracts yet, so there is still hope.
Am going to give them the chance to sign first, just looking out for friends.
Great post for the first day of April! Happy Spring!
Happy spring to you too.
Looks like they chose the deluxe chalet. I personally would choose the nature lover’s retreat. Great pictures. I need to get my bird cam on.
I think it’s too soon to say. She was still shopping around. Last year we had chickadees in the Nature Lover’s Retreat. Hopefully we will again. I need to get my bird cam on too, if I can figure out how to make it work right.
Is Nature Lover’s Retreat still on the market? 🙂
I LOVE that one best!
It’s quite nice. I’m sure you would be comfortable.
I love them all! I just got my little suet holder filled with ribbons and yarn and dryer lint and need to find a place to hang it. Not sure if there will be any takers but at least it is worth a try, right??? Let us know who ends up renting from you. 🙂
I was thinking about looking up your blog post about that. I filled a hanging pot with some of the garden refuse. I didn’t want to clean it all up and not leave anything for the birds to use. Do you have to use all natural materials or does it matter?
I don’t think you have to use all natural materials—I mean look at some of the trash that birds find to use in their nests!!! I put mine out today in a spruce tree and we will see. I had yarn and ribbons, string and dryer fluff—I am not going to hold my breath. Every time I do something that I think is wonderful the recipients don’t always see it that way…..in this case I am sure the birds will think it is silly!!! But I tried!!! The hanging pot idea is great!! I am sure they love it!
I’m so jealous — and they look nice and small for cleaning — when can I move in? 🙂
Any time. They’re all vacant right now. But if they don’t suit your purpose, we do have a guest room or two in the house you could crash in for a night or two. 🙂
Definitely checking out the neighborhood! I see lots of fun in your future, Christine.
I hope so. I love the little singing birds.
So sweet. After checking out each available, he says to the realtor “I need to go talk to my wife now “!
I don’t know for sure, but I think it was the wife who was looking. The husband appeared to be perching around on branches nearby, probably getting tired of waiting for her.
“would you just make up your mind?” he grumbles! hee hee
What FUN, Christine. We built a house for kestrels, but so far – no takers! I’ve seen ONE kestrel hanging around hubby’s ham antenna, but not taking to the box. Yet!
I’ll have to look up kestrels and their houses. I hope you get hummingbirds again.
They’ll appreciate that!
great photo’s its good to see spring has arrived where you live Christine… 🙂
Yes. Thank goodness. We’re having a beautiful day right now. I should be outside gardening.
Chickadees are my favorite and we have lots of them here. I love to hear them sing their special song. Love the photos! So many choices.
I like the chickadees too, although last year we had some wrens in the acorn house and the song was lovely.
