Art imitates life, or so they say. BestMediaBlog features all the best artwork that your eyes can feast upon. From nature photography to quirky crafts projects that seem too surreal to be believed, this blog is both eye candy at a glance and Art 101 in a matter of clicks.
BestMediaBlog is your source for mundane poetry magnified. Where else can you an old, abandoned birdhouse just a few posts above a stunning picture of the South African bulb South Haemanthus Coccineus (”painbrush”)?
Excerpt from BestMediaBlog:
The bluebird house hung for many years on a fencepost in our back yard in suburbia, and though it never hosted any bluebirds, the sparrows made frequent use of it. When we acquired the 40 acres of Fallen Timbers, this house was one of the first things we carried with us. Adam, a teenager by then (and now in medical school), hung it on a likely tree near the fire ring. On every visit, we opened the front door to see if anyone was interested.
I think all of the natural cavities and other nesting options made this development unnecessary because we never found a nest within. Sometimes there would be a bunch of grass, and once we found it partly filled with acorns. But our visits to Fallen Timbers became less frequent and we started hanging birdhouses at Roundrock instead. I had thought that the placement of the house right in the middle of our parking, cooking, and camping area might have deterred guests, but even when we stopped visiting so frequently, the house didn’t show any sign of tenants.
