A Squirrel to Tea

tea cup bird feeder

I have a number of china tea cups acquired throughout the years – the where, when and why mostly forgotten. They’ve been stashed in a box in the guest room collecting dust since we moved to Maine.

A few of the cups now have a higher purpose. I turned them into garden tea cup bird feeders for mother’s day and birthday gifts. My favorite tea cup now resides in the garden tucked between my dwarf lilac and lavender. All week I’ve kept watch for guests, but the only critter to arrive for tea has been this little red squirrel.

Update: two weeks later and a bird has finally visited for tea!
