Cheap garbage!

Remember DH bought a big enough bird feeder to last longer than a day? Well, you would think the manufacturers could make the cable strong enough to hold that much food. He paid enough for the large size, but seems it was just a large price paid for a faulty product. It landed in the grass during the winds from the front coming in. This morning the birds found it and had a free for all. 

The cow birds have joined in the feeding frenzy. They really went nuts for quite a while, at least as long as the seeds lasted.


See the reddish haze through that tree? I won't bore you with a bunch of them, but the haze is growing in the woods. The neighbor's daffodils are blooming and so are the pear trees in their yard. Looks like spring is starting. Will probably freeze tomorrow  night or the next night. It's going to get cold again.
I have been busy (Hah!) watching Fringe and am nearing the end. I am so hooked into it. Jill keeps giving me this look ... I must not waste so much time with my face in the tube. I'll have to quit - after I see the completion. Haha.
Have a great weekend, Folks!

  1. The birds had quite a feast at your house. I have trouble with the wind blowing my feeder down too even when its full of seed.

    1. The wind broke the hanging 'wire' I will have to jury rig something up.

  2. I think was the name of a storm in the UK was Storm Doris.... that's not what I called it. Bird feeders down as were the bird tables. That's the second time this month, roll on Christmas!!!! You are right about spring being on the way, though. I can't wait.

  3. I think Jill is wishing you treated her dog food like the bird feeder.

    1. Jill will eat whatever is there for her. We would never be able to get one of those big dog feeders - she would eat until it was empty.

  4. It's a wonder there weren't a "zillion" squirrels there, at the fallen feeder!

    -grin- As I said, we were hooked on "Fringe" too! ,-) I can see how you are.

    Gentle hugs,

    1. I enjoy the occasional squirrel for photo ops and their clever trickery. We don't have them long when they do wander in. I have 2 dogs and the neighbors all have dogs that visit - squirrels don't last long around here.
      Finished Fringe last night, sorry that ride was over!

    2. Oops!! That is not good. I would write the company and let them know what happened. They might step up and do the right thing. As for your question on my blog, "where are all the grandson's coming from"?....I have three. My oldest is the 16 yr old in the pic and his brothers are 8 and 6. That is all I have.....three boys!

    3. He bought at WalMart and stupidly, I threw the receipt.
      Looks like you have a basketball player there!

  5. Spring may be coming to you but as yet the trees haven't started to turn here. Longing for the autumn to start

    1. I'm sure things could get nipped in the bud tonight, we're expecting a sharp freeze tonight. Our average last frost date is a couple months away. I think we could have early spring, but this really isn't it, it's a fluke.

  6. Probably a chain would be a better idea to hold the feeder, some nice strong welded links.
    I haven't watched Fringe in quite a while, I have the boxed set on my shelf, but I'm currently watching Grimm and Highlander.

    1. I'm not sure how large I can make the holes in the plastic. I'll have to check it all out, as I don't know how the plastic will take to my drill.
      I'm still watching The Twilight Zone - I reserve a story or two for evening before bed. I have yet to crack into Battlestar Galactica.
