45 days ago i posted a bird house telling everybody that i made one for work, for the enviroment so they can put them in the woods around the plant. There was over 20 birdhouses and they had employes vote on them. Well i won, the prize was a 100 dollar gift certificate from a garden dept in the area. It was earthday and they anounce the winner today.

Thanks to everybody who looked and commented on my birdhouse.

The gift certificate can only be spent on garding stuff. I want a couple of flowering cherry trees for my yard so i probaly purchase them with the card.

Great work, glad you won! Hope your carpal tunnel clears up pretty quick. I know the pain, I suffer through it every day. Dr told me to wear my brace at night and take aleve during the day. I can’t afford to take the time off work, so it’s suffer through it time.
