Woody Woodpecker Lives in Our Trees

O.k., so this isn't really craft or creativity-related, but I had to show you how interesting life can be at The Teacup Cottage. We have some pretty big holes in the trees in our front yard made by woodpeckers. Not in the backyard, just the front. Lil Monkey is intrigued by them because he hears them but never sees them. You just hear random knocking, especially in the summer when we are outside more. 

We heard them again today, though we didn't see them ... again ... However, I did get some photos of some of their "artwork". Prince Charming is not so enamored by their art, we've had a few yard maintenance days where we had to trim it back so the dead parts don't affect the healthy parts. We are slowly losing our trees, but they are still beautiful. 

I've made references to Woody Woodpecker but Lil Monkey is too young, so maybe we will have to find some old cartoons for him to watch. The holes and lines are pretty artistic but sadly they bugs are killing our poor tree. 

Just another random adventure in our own backyard!

Until our next cup of tea ...
