Very nice. I like the added birds. I agree how beautiful a picture it makes with the snow on it.

Thanks Debbie and Diane.
I am just waiting for a neighbor to cut down a whole pile of old spruce trees soon. I want to build more of them but different designs.

Oh my god this right out of a fairy tale. Charmingly perfect! I want one…I have no lawn or garden but I could find a roof garden to put it on! Wonderful. I bet it feels great too. Just beautiful.
