Designer Bird Feeder. The design collapses, which I thought was great!
If any of you have been reading this blog very long, you know we get strong winds in the desert. Nothing is safe. I would say, “unless it’s tired down,” but we’ve had staked trees break in half before. I guess nothing really works against the wind that can gust to near hurricane force here at times.
We’ve had the barbecue grill blow right off the patio and turn over in the lawn. The grill is not a tiny one either. Our heavy metal patio chairs have taken flight as well and turned over, or fallen on pots and broken them. Sometimes the strength of the wind amazes me.
My new summery bird feeder
Anyway, we’re always losing bird feeders because they blow down and get broken on the rocks. I’d love to put up all my wind chimes (and I have a lot), but they probably wouldn’t be safe around here for long, so instead they’re still in a box in the garage. That and hubby doesn’t want me putting holes in the stucco on the house. In the twelve years we’ve been here, I have only put up two and they’re in safer places so they’ve stayed intact (so far). And I’ve made no holes in the house to hang them up. I still don’t see what difference holes will have on anything and I guess I never will.
My new bird feeder hanging from a tree in the front yard
So when I was at Home Depot looking for something else, I ran across this designer bird feeder. I just had to have it. The bright yellow-gold color sucked me in. It looked so summery. I finally got around to putting it up. It’s in the front yard this time and not the back because the chipmunks living back there on our rock wall will eat anything and tear up the yard in the process.
Now once the birds find it, I’ll be a happy camper.
