So, in between my painting, I decided to try making a beeskep!!
It didn't turn out too bad. It looks like a skep, at least! :)
Now, I had all the stuff here to make this...I had some sisal rope, and strong bond hot glue. I had a hard time finding something to use as a "frame" tho....While I was out in my greenhouse, I saw one of my rose covers. Do ya know what I mean? They are a stryrofoam cone shaped dome that you put over your roses (other plants) to protect them from frost???? That is what I used, ya could use anything tho! After I got my rope on, I stained it up a bit...and whah-lah...a beeskep!
As I said, I'll have to see how it holds up, if it doesn't, I am not out anything but my time...*fingers crossed* it holds up!! ;)
Here's an Americana sign I did, with Memorial Day upon us I thought I'd hang it out on the patio...
Below are just a couple of pics I thought ya'd like....
Here's my Oriole. I have more than one family...and the males fight over the feeder and the GRAPE JELLY! So do the females...Territorial, must be? LOL, it looks like he's standing guard over the grape jelly!
I have a Great Blue Heron who visits my bigger pond and steals my fish...I have a decoy I set out to deter Him, they ARE territorial! I have to wait tho, before I put out my decoy, if I put it out too soon, it actually draws them in, due to mating season! Mating season is until the end of May....LOL...that's all I need!!! To look out and see a Great Blue Heron trying to mate with my decoy! ;)
