Opening Doors: Through My Window

A photo challenge hosted by Jientje at Heaven In Belgium.

On Thursdays I post something for you to see that I've seen Through My Window. What was I going to post this week that I could possibly tie in to Jientje's Opening Doors Challenge? It wasn't looking so good until the idea came for me to show you at least part of the big old oak tree that I have often talked about in this blog. I sit everyday and gaze through it's branches that shadow the yard below.
Hanging from one of those branches is a bird feeder that helps supplement the meals of some of the birds that visit it daily. What the cardinals and sparrows and occasional mourning dove let shake to the ground the squirrels, turkeys, and bluejays feast on from below. My little feathered friends keep me amused on a daily basis. Sitting in my sunroom looking around something caught my eye and I had a tie-in for the challenge.
What caught my eye was this glass-like doorknob.
The doorknob was attached to the church birdhouse sitting on my sunroom floor. The doorknob is for a little birdie to perch upon before entering his house. There you have it - I still got to show you the view Through My Window and a little 'door detail' as well!

As always, I hope the view through your window is a pleasant one today!

:You worked for that one! Well done. Your bird house reminded me of a collection of this type of bird house that is a focal point at a resturant we frequent, now I will have to take my camera so I can share.

That is a spectacular bird house! You and my sister seem to have a lot in common. I think you two would have a wonderful time visiting each other's yards.

What a great birdhouse! I NEVER would have thought of a doorknob for a perch. Someone is very clever. ;-)

What a great idea for a bird house!!!! My bird feeder is falling apart too, I think I'll have to ask my father to fix it!
