Comments about Product: Ordered this and the butterfly whirlygig as Xmas gifts. found them to be cheaply made. Just heard that the hummingbird whirly gig had the spinner fall off in my friends garden. It appears the nut or whatever it screwed into broke off and now we can't put the spinner back on.
Comments about Product: I ordered this and the butterfly version to help keep moles out of our garden 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.
Comments about Product: This was so cute with the hummingbird, I ordered one of these for myself plus two as Christmas gifts. The flower came apart within a day which I reattached, then it came apart again within another day. Then, after a wind storm (and shouldn't a whirligig stand up to wind?), the entire flower became bent. We sent all of these back and hope for a full refund due to the poor quality.

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!
