Hils brought the new Bird bath in on Monday. I hope they use it to drink and bath...

A new Bird for the Garden.I dont know what it is yet. I need to read my Bird books and try to identify him. He picked up the seeds that have dropped from the red net bag that is on the fence post...

The Blue Tit stretching his neck to admire the new bell shaped seed feeder!

Another Unknown bird.I thought it was a Blackbird but it is not I dont think. He fed off the ground near the Bird table..

Ding Dong. Bird seed in a Bell shape. Fran brought it this morning along with the Dogwood, and a DVD player. The fruit cane is now holding it aloft.I love the acrobatic birds balancing on it as it swayed in the wind. They found it within five minutes off me placing it outside.

The Solar Light, one of four outside now in the Left hand Border.They must have charged the battery before they packed them. I just removed a red tag and it came on.I think night lights add magic to a garden, and mean you can see it differently at night, compared to the Daytime.
A day of gifts, shopping, and birds...

Nice! I think the brown bird looks like a finch of some kind, but I'm not sure. (Different continent and all ;-) I like the night lights too, especially the ones in fun shapes.

Hi Lisa,The night lights have been a disaster. They only shone on the first night.Its been too overcast fro them to recharge their solar panels.
Night lighting may well have to be from a mains supply.I do not think the light is sufficient to generate the power for them.We will see.I do like the shape of the silver posts and the lights as purely decorative elements to contrast with the soil, the fence, and the plants.I guess they have some vertical presence!
