Comments about Product: A year ago I bought the solar humming birds and have been pleased and charmed by them ever since, as they continue working this season. So when I saw the dragonfly version on sale this summer, I didn't hesitate to order 3 sets, one for each of my children to also enjoy in their own homes.
Comments about Product: I love these!!! I have the humming birds, dragon flies.The first ones I bought were the humming birds. I had to bring them back three times but I had to have it because they turn different colors, which looks so nice, I get a lot complements.I Fuss at them. The base is in ceramic which I like and its heavy, they do go out a lot and they do need a battery. Then I bought the dragon flies they also came in colors which I like as well and yet again you have to add a battery.
I had bought some for a friend; it only came in white lights and they didn't turn individually, very disappointing.
It's obvious that it is a good seller. you may want to re think how to structure this item better. Let the consumer know that you have to put a battery in and PLEASE bring back the individually ones that change in different colors
Comments about Product: arrived missing one dragonfly; kindly customer service rep promised replacement, which hasn't yet arrived. Remaining 5 flies light up beautifully--for 5-10 minutes, after being in sun all day for two days. Am waiting to see if a few more days will make it work as it should, or else it goes back--along with the other 5 that I ordered in hope of decorating the whole deck.
Comments about Product: I am a little embarrassed to admit this, but i was about to return them as defective when i noticed the small on/off switch underneath. Amazingly when the switch is in the ON position, they work great!! :) lol
Comments about Product: Lit up for one night, after I figured out there was an on/off switch. Then it stopped working.
Will try to replace battery; that is, if its not solar. Lot of money for something so poorly designed. Unfortunately I bought another for a friend. Maybe it will work.
Comments about Product: It looked great at first but within three months, they failed to illuminate. Honestly, this entire line of solar lights is defective. I have ordered several of these products, and none of them have performed as promised or anticipated. More research, please and give us better technology!
Comments about Product: I purchased the Dragonfly and it was beautiful and bright for 3 days then it died. I ignored the other reviews that had the same problem and took a chance but obviously wasted my money. I would think that P&H would pull this item based on the problems this product has.
Comments about Product: I've had 2 of these and they are very pretty at night while they last. I did not have a problem with them lighting, but the dragonfly's fall off after about 2 months. Both of them have come apart. I'm not sure if it's the heat or the wind, but they just do not hold together well outdoors.
Comments about Product: The first of these mobiles I received did not work. When I called Plow and Hearth customer service, they were extremely helpful about arranging for a replacement to be sent at no extra charge. The second has worked perfectly and is a lovely outdoor decoration. I would recommend this product with the caveat that it may arrive defective and you will have to be prepared to return it for another.
Comments about Product: I loved these the first couple of months BUT soon after the dragonflies began to fall off. Now I am down to two and there is no way to attach the fallen ones. Waste of my money!
Comments about Product: After hanging it outside for 2 months waiting for it to work, I was packing it up to send it back until reading a comment that mentioned the on/off switch--oops! Works perfectly now--hope it continues.
Comments about Product: This was a gift for my mom. She said the box had no directions and none inside the box. She thought it did not work. They found the switch 2 days later. Why aren't instructions included?
Comments about Product: The first one of these I got didn't work. Second one lose one of the dragonflies when I dropped it, but it is so beautiful that I bought one for a gift for a friend. Love the look. Just wish it were a little sturdier
Comments about Product: lots of sun first day - lit beautifully that night, stayed lit for over 6 hours - awesome at night, especially with a breeze - be sure to turn the "on" button on! am going to order the butterfly one as well - very pleased with purchase - was wrapped very carefully -
Comments about Product: A wonderful mobile that is hanging just outside our patio door. It begins glowing after sundown. Very nice! When the lights did not come on the first night. I began inspecting it and found an off/on switch. A simple set of instructions would have helped.

Comments about Product: I ordered this and hummingbirds. This one was packed just fine, but the I think the hummingbirds must have been a return they were anxious to get rid of. The outside box had no packaging to protect it AND neither did the inside. Now I need to try it out ASAP to see if it actually works.
Comments about Product: I think this product had come back and was resold as the dragonflys lit up as soon as I turned on the on button. This did not happen with the other one.
Also, one dfly was not attached to the string. I taped it but it does not light.
Comments about Product: I loved the dragonflies when I first got them. However, only after a couple nights use, they came on for a few minutes and would then go off and never come back on. I still have them hanging on my deck because they pretty in the sunlight. Very disappointed.
Comments about Product: No directions came with the dragonfly mobile, but knew from similar solar products to turn the switch on to charge. Works great, bright light at night. Goes well with all the other solar dragonflies I have in my yard.
Comments about Product: I've had the dragonflies in my front yard for 5 weeks now. I have not had any battery issue thus far and, for the price, I think these little guys are worth it! My dragonflies survived a fall intact (the stick they hung from had broken).
Comments about Product: I purchased all 3 different figures awhile back and hung them on the back deck, they looked really nice at night. So, I recently ordered more as gifts for friends and family, plus more for myself. When the new ones arrived I noticed the access door for the battery was not there as with my first ones. The style had been changed. Guess you need to remove the 3 screws and the entire back to change a battery. Then, one of the first that I had bought with my original order stopped lighting, and the battery was still good. So, they only work for 3 months or so? And several of the new ones that I just purchased recently won't work. At[$] each, and I've purchased 12 altogether now, I am very disappointed in the quality.
Comments about Product: My sweet sister sent this to me for my birthday and I love it! I have it hanging where I can see it standing at the kitchen sink, it faces west so gets lots of sunlight... Very bright light and it simply intrigues the cat! Thanks Sis!
Comments about Product: I have ordered this item 3 times.I got it myself and was very pleased. Ordered twice for birthday gifts. This last time ordered hasn't arrived yet!! Very very disappointing!! So upset. KB
Comments about Product: I was so pleased with the solar dragonflies that I purchased twice again for gifts, but the second one has not arrived yet!! So disappointed!! Very Very upset as it was to be a birthday gift. kb
Comments about Product: As another reviewer noted, solar lights are unpredictable. For the first few weeks, these lights turned themselves on when the sun set. Just lovely, delicate little lights that shined all night. Seriously: One morning, I found them still shining just before sunrise.
Now? Well, after about 6-8 weeks, sometimes they turn on and sometimes they don't.
I live in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas and my yard faces south. These lights receive A LOT of sunlight all day long--enough light that should adequately charge the solar batteries.
I won't be surprised if I'm looking to replace the battery before too much longer.
I'm recommending these with reservations--they still look nice in the sunlight.
Comments about Product: The dragon flies solar light is very pretty, will look great hanging from my tree outside. The strings that the dragon flies are attached to appear to be some sort of nylon fillament and should hold up well in the weather. I do wish that the strings that attach them to the top hook were as sturdy, I hope they will last through the Summer
Comments about Product: I love the mobile as dragonflies are my fav. However, it get's full sun, but does NOT glow at night. Will keep 7 more days before returning. Hope you can provide hints to make work!
Comments about Product: I hung the dragonfly lights in my front yard and they look lovely. My only reservation is how long will the solar-rechargable battery last. I've had other solar lights and I've initially be very pleased. In some cares it's be only a few weeks and the lights lose their ability to hold a charge for more than a few hours.
So, I'll wait to see how these work.
Comments about Product: The dragonflies are hanging in my garden. They light up at night wonderfully. We have had a lot of wind lately, and so far, they have not tangled at all. I live in Michigan so weather is always a threat. I am buying another pair to take to my cabin up north.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
