Comments about Product: Worked great in even the gentlest of breezes, the rotating top part of the pole making a huge difference as it would move to catch the wind direction, the blades moving even when the larger wind spinner (from a different company) across the driveway from it was still. However, you MUST take it down in strong winds as the sun flames on mine literally blew off in heavy winds one day.
Comments about Product: We have several wind sculptures but this is the most colorful one. It's mesmerizing. When there are two separate sides to spin balance is very critical. For us only one side spins easily. The other takes a strong wind or it just rocks back and forth. Most of the time they spin in the same direction together rather than opposite.
Comments about Product: Thought a spinner might be fun but this one must only move in gale force winds, if at all.
The ground stake bent going into the ground and as a result it does not stand up straight now.
And yes, I did soften the ground with water before I pushed it into the earth.
Comments about Product: I needed something to mark the location of a small hole in my yard that is used infrequently and can be difficult to find. This spinner fit the bill! Assembly was not difficult but it was not 100% obvious as to which orientation the part with the ball bearing should go. The picture is correct, just not specific enough. My back yard is sheltered quite well so it doesn't spin a lot but when the breeze picks up it does. Can't comment on durability after just a few weeks.
Comments about Product: I put it in my garden and it looks nice around the flowers and birdbaths. It spins well when the wind is blowing. I would of liked it better if it was a foot taller. Overall I do enjoy it.
Comments about Product: the hardest part for us was determining where to put it. we wanted to enjoy it but it also had to be in a place where it fully catches the wind. I can't wait to get more garden art.
Comments about Product: I bought this a few weeks ago when it was listed on the weekly sale. Easy to assemble and GORGEOUS in my garden. So pretty and fun to watch. It's hypnotizing when spinning and charming when stationary. I love it so much and bonus that I got it on sale.
Comments about Product: Sun Rays (Blades) are riding on Ball Bearings - if assembled correctly the Suns Rays turn in both directions - both Clockwise, Counter Clockwise and opposite to each other - all depends on just how the wind is blowing. On a Shepards pole which is placed on the ground and steped-on to install in your garden or where ever your fancy is. Recommended - Swivels in the wind. I believe this was well worth the price (I got BOGO!).
Excellent Gift for wonderful friends! - They'll love it! Well Made.
Comments about Product: This kinetic sculpture is beautiful and is perfectly balanced to spin very well even in the slightest breeze. It took a while to get the blades and covers tightened to the proper amount to keep things spinning (initially, the wind caused the blades to tighten until it wouldn't spin). It looks beautiful in my garden.

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!
