I repurposed a thrift store cup & saucer into a bird feeder. Can't wait to fill it up and watch the bird buffet!

Very nice upcycle! I'm sure the birds will be grateful. Smiley

That's a very cool and unique design for a bird feeder.  How did you permanently attach the saucer and cup, glue, or some other means?  And what kinds of birds do you get in a lemon tree?

Thank you! I honestly don't know much about birds, but I saw the idea on Pinterest and fell in love, and the only trees we have are fruit trees.
I used both Hammer Head Quik Epoxy Steel & this stuff called Weldbond -- most tutorials I saw used Gorilla Glue or E6000, but these are what I had on hand. I used both "just to be safe", so hopefully they hold up! ☺️

how fun!
I would think the birds would come to a feeder no matter what kind of tree it's in...
