I wanted to show you this great new humming bird feeder that I picked up at my local Walmart for $9.95!
The reason it caught my eye (besides the fact that it was deep red – my favorite color… for now ;), was because I thought that it was a thick red wine bottle that had been made into a humming bird feeder. It reminded me of some of the other thick bubble glass that some of my other garden features are made out of.
Upon closer inspection, I realized that it was actually plastic!
It has the look of a vintage wine bottle with a cork. At first, you might think about how hard it would be to keep the feeder filled after you take out the cork, but you actually unscrew the bottom of the feeder, turn it upside down, fill it, then turn it right side up – (after you put the bottom back on of course :).
Both the hanger & the bottom of the feeder are made out of metal, both of which help add to that vintage feel.
I purchased this feeder a week or so ago, but while I was working in the office today, I saw a little humming bird come up to the window. He was trying to get to the beautiful begonia flowers that a friend had given me (he must have been spying on me through the window :). So… I figured it was finally time to share the pretty red “vintage looking” feeder with him – and not just keep it all to myself 😉
If you get a chance, go check out the garden center at your local Walmart… maybe you can find one for your cottage garden!
