Yardscaping for the Holidays BY THE WILD BIRD CENTER WEATHERFORD, TX O ne of the great joys of the winter holidays is decorating the house with beautiful, festive things that belay cold, wet weather: lights, tinsel, banners, garlands, sculptures, the list of possibilities grows with the imagination. But how about decking the boughs as well as the halls? How about including the wild things in your festivities? DECEMBER 2016 PA R K E R C O U N T Y T O D AY Bird Pinecone Popcorn Garland Like the decorations for your house and yard, decorating for wildlife can be fairly simple or completely extravagant. Maybe you start off with a few pinecones spread with peanut butter and dipped in seed and hung from a tree limb. It’s a hit so you add some popcorn garlands and ornaments made from bagels, oranges and apples. Next thing you know you are creating conical trees of apples, oranges and sprigs of holly for the birds and providing cornucopias of dried corn and nuts for the squir- 46 rels and other creatures. There are also premade holiday goodies for wildlife.
