Purple Martin Gourds


Click to enlarge so you can see the Purple Martin gourds.
Dried gourds have been used as natural birdhouses for centuries.
These were hanging in the middle of a big garden spot.

I have saved some "birdhourse" gourds from gardening years past for that reason...and then realized I don't have the right tools to drill a hole in them for the birds. They're decorations for now.
