Looks like a very pretty birdhouse, I have a very similar one,but mine is much more birdiehousier than yours I'd even say it's a lot betterer 🤣

This one is for the posh birds, the common ones live in the beach huts further along @lostgardener

Oh b*ll*cks I’m gonna lose this one...cause you gave yours a fresh lick of paint and a refurb...so yes, yours is probably betterer. Although...mine does have Sonos, underfloor heating and an American style fridge freezer (or a refrigeratorrrr as they call it!) Just saying 😌😜🤭🙊😆 @scaryskates

It’s right about now (funk soul brother) that the heady perfume of the Jasmine starts to waft across the patio (and the birds have lovely smelling houses!) #scentsofsummer

Honestly Sahithya...this is planted in completely the wrong place (its shady and damp) and for the most part I completely neglect it! All I really do is prune it a bit once it’s flowered 🤷🏻‍♀️ @krism
