|Casa Mariposa's Accidental Enlightenment|
Casa Mariposa's solution:
"Birdhouses, when potted correctly, are tremendously xeric. Creeping bramble has been planted in front. It's a tough evergreen groundcover that is supposed to have beautiful fall color, although mine are still mostly green because this spot only receives morning sun. It will eventually cascade over the sides of the pot. Creeping bramble is in the raspberry family and should be fruiting this summer."
