Comments about Product: This is the 1st spinner I ordered from Plow & Hearth. I was very impressed with the workmanship and quality of the spinner. I had a problem with the solar feature not working. I followed instructions and I returned it with a request to replace it with the same type spinner because I really liked the spinner itself and the added solar feature. Since I initially ordered this spinner late fall, and we are experiencing an early winter, by the time I installed the replacement spinner there hasn't been much sunlight. I'm happy to say that the spinner and solar feature is working though it won't stay bright as long as it would if we had more day time/sun light during the day.
Comments about Product: I've bought a variety of wind spinners from other catalogs, and most I returned because of poor construction or because they were too heavy to spin. The Solar LED Flower Spinner, however, is near perfect. In spite of their large size, the blades spin effortlessly, even in low winds. The multicolored version is psychedelically mesmerizing, and at night the two sets of white LEDs make for a wild strobing effect. My only quibbles are that the blade mounting can't be "locked" into a position; i.e., it turns in the direction of the wind like a weather vane. This is problemattic if you're watching from a window and the blades are facing sidewise. A little black duct tape around the connection can solve that problem but an optional "through in" that could locked it into position would have been nice. The other minor quibble is that it would have been nice if both blades could be mounted facing the same direction; right now they mount in opposite directions. Because there are fewer LEDs on the rear blades, the nighttime lights aren't as pronounced as they would be if both blades faced the same way. You actually could mount the rear blade to face front, but it doesn't look all that good or spin as well. Otherwise, this is a great, high quality product.

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!
