When we first featured this birdhouse on the cover of the December 2000 issue of Fine Gardening, the FG office got dozens of calls from gardeners wanting one just like it. Years later, this garden feature is still a stunning focal point in the garden of Eve and Per Thyrum in Wilmington, Delaware. Alas, it’s one-of-a-kind, handmade by Per himself. The structure alone, minus the legs, is at least 6 feet tall.
