Nice addition to lake shoreline
Comments about Product:
Very attractive addition to my lake shoreline but needs a strong wind to move. Does not spin near house, needs to be out in the open air.

Magical Addition to the Garden
Comments about Product:
This is a very cute garden piece; not in the wind yet...when I tested it, it did not rotate with the wind and it takes a hefty breeze to turn the flower to activate the butterflies. Cute, but could be better in the wind.

I LOVE watching the butterflies
Comments about Product:
OK, I was puzzled at first as to the blade and keeping it on without the wind blowing it off, but figured it out. HEY! slow mind. LOVE the watching the butterflies moving their wings. Neighbors also love watching. I did have to put the item in my backyard, due to not wanting someone else to take it.

I didn't expect it to be so cute!
Comments about Product:
I bought this item as a decoration for my backyard. I found a nice spot where my sprinklers don't hit to protect it from rust. I was surprised at how realistic the butterflies look when it is windy (or when I spin it myself). Unfortunately the winds have died down so there is not much action. Luckily like real butterflies, they are beautiful still and in motion.

Broke the 2nd day :(
Comments about Product:
Sadly the butterflies that move on top, one broke the 2nd day with not much wind to boot. I had a dog model before that lasted a bit but this one is too delicate I think

cool concept;poor quality
Comments about Product:
Purchased for my daughter for gift. Asked how she likes it:it must have spun too fast or too long and the nut inside the flower fell off so we have to try to fix it by attaching another nut on the outside and one of the springs that made a butterfly's wing move had broken right away

Pretty, but non-functional
Comments about Product:
I ordered this and the hummingbird version to help keep moles out of our garden and to add something whimsical. Both are just as cute as they can be, but it takes a very stiff, horizontal wind to make them spin! I even tried greasing them to make it easier, but that didn't help at all. So, they really do nothing to discourage moles. But they are pretty to look at, so I keep them in the garden nonetheless.

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!

How it Works:


Water is pulled directly through the terra-cotta!
