Well, Jamie and I needed to put up some more bird feeders since all of ours were sucked up and toated off. We got to looking at those wrought iron shepherds hooks and I told Jamie 40 or 50 dollars was just too much for one of those dang things. I said we could build one our selves out of a pole much cheaper. So we did...
1 4x4 post = $6.00
Okay! We're doing great!
3 Ornate hooks @ $15.00 each = $45.00
1 Fancy solar powered post cap = $22.00
2 Over priced bird feeders that match ornate hooks = $50.00
1 Hanging basket to match ornate hooks and over priced birdfeeders = $15.00
1 Bag of potting soil and a coconut liner to go in hanging basket that matches ornate hooks that go well with over priced birdfeeders = $7.00
4 Pots of petunias free from sympathetic neighbor.
1 Bag of bird seed = $7.00
Grand total = $152.00
We should have gotten the expensive shepherd hook and the plastic bird feeders... Jamie says, "Oh but this looks so much better!" I think to my self, "Do the birds really care?"
