More Pinetta



Here is a farewell shot from my cousin's place in Pinetta. This is another one of his driftwood planters with a birdhouse underneath. You can see his pond in the background. The latest visitor to the pond was a young alligator, but he's not there anymore. One of the ways they check for gators in the pond is by shining a light out there at night. You can tell if there are gators because the light will reflect in their eyes. They let their grandchildren swim in the pond, so they are pretty careful about checking it.

Lois, we now need a photo of your cousin; I'd like to meet this creative fellow. The pond looks inviting, but not with alligators!

You saved the best for last in my book.

Kate's right Lois, your cousin certainly need to take a bow! That has got to be one of the most unusual birdhouses I've seen!!

Florida- it's a pretty, wild place. Pinetta seems to embody that.

The bird house/planter is so very cool.

Up here in Ohio, we don't have to worry about alligators, thankfully. The dogs swim in our friend's farm pond. ;)

This is another wonderful and creative structure, Lois. He is very different from me, but he seems to be an interesting person.
