Arboretum Birdhouses

Visiting the Arboretum is a favorite trip spring to fall.  This weekend we enjoyed the Birdhouse Exhibit.  Children, adults, families, artists and celebrities created birdhouses that will be auctioned later for charity.  There were serious and humorous and all very creative lining the paths in the central gardens.  These were some of my favorites, mixed with a couple of other sights.

This birdhouse had a solar panel on the roof that lit a small light inside at night.
