Comments about Product: I decorated the top of a half wall with vaulted ceiling behind. The Rooster sits atop two luggage pieces bought here at Plow and Hearth as if waiting for a ride while reading. The Rooster has glasses and lends itself to the unexpected - humorously unexpected. I love it.
Comments about Product: The reading rooster, or Beatrice as we call her sits on a bench outside my front door. We also have the frog holding the cup -- Niles -- and he sits on our deck out back. They look great and everyone comments on them.
Comments about Product: I loved this bird's look in the catalog and he looks just as good in person. People who visit find him charming. He'd be a great mascot for a book club. I bought him to decorate our deck, but I might just keep him indoors.

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!
