After work today hubby and I stopped by our favorite home improvement store for a couple of things. I've been wanting to put in a water feature in my flowerbed/bird feeding area so I needed some sort of water containment vessel. So we picked up a half whiskey barrel liner for the water feature, a cool solar light and a tiny trailing plant for a small planter. I'm set.....now to decide where it all will go.....I always have to place items in the garden then go inside the house to view it from my kitchen window before permanent placement is made. You know it just has to be right!!
I placed the barrel liner in its future spot. I passed by the oriole feeder and noticed it was nearly empty--the grape jelly had become diluted in the recent rains...I needed to refill it. I returned to the kitchen and looked out the window and to my surprise saw Mr. Oriole perched on the feeder sucking up whatever was remaining in the shallow feeder. WOOHOO!!! I had seen Mr.O for the last week but nowhere near the feeder, I was thrilled!! I waited til he finished, grabbed the grape jelly, my camera and the meal worms for the blue birds and made my way back to the feeder. Just moments after refilling the feeder he was BACK!! So, I think he's found the grape jelly buffet.
