The weather is delightful for March! It has been near 50 F or 10 C eh!
March 20 the bird feeding/solar light area. What a mess. The black is mostly from that snirt storm.
This week we spiffed up part of the yard, cleaning up after the birds and their empty sunflower seed hulls. I checked all of my solar lights and added a few. Now there are twelve and three are still faulty, maybe they need a cleaning.
After: Nine days later
I saved that red white and blue whirly gig, last summer it blew off the holder and someone might have been me, mowed the holder to smitherines.
Last winter the wind from North Dakota and Montana took out my cheery yellow sunflower twirly whirly gig…I found it back in the woods one day and put it back up…Far Guy said “That sunflower looks pathetic.” It did…it was not as cheery as it once was. It kept falling off the holder when it was windy. Sadly I gathered it together to take to the garbage and then had an idea.
The old holder was still in the ground and the flower head part… well I might be able to use it with some modifications…I ripped off the silky petals…decided to make it work with my red white and blue twirly whirly gig…cause I hate to throw anything out!
I glued some beads on the flower head part so it would be kinda matchy matchy.
This time I glued the round flower head part right on the holder…we will see if it holds.
We lugged out the patio table and two chairs…Far Guy likes to woodcarve outside. I just like to sit out there and feel the sun on my head and watch for birds.
It may snow again, in fact I would bet on it…I carried my pretty red snow shovel away from the front door.
