1- 12-2017 Weather Report – rainy, warm & windy

p11101131-12-2017 67° Windy, Cloudy and rainy
The wind feels like a warm Spring wind, it’s amazing.
If it wasn’t so dreary and damp out it’d be a lovely day.

This post ends up my 12 days of January weather reports.
Now I’ll wait and see how they compare to the months ahead.

There’s a gnome-hater in our midst. I’m not sure what critter it is, but hate gnomes, it does. I stand my gnomes up and within a night or two, something knocks them all down.
I suspect that the critter was foraging and knocked them over when it rooted underneath them with it’s nose… or it hates standing gnomes. :/p1110064

Wishing you all great weather the rest of the winter.

*just a note* – I had to drill holes in the bottom of my mushroom birdbath to keep it drained and dry because when it held water, it peeled and turned icky and stunk. It’s real disappointing.

Windy Wednesday (windsocks)

IMG_9032

There’s been some super windy days here lately. The winds reminded me of a windsock project I’ve been thinking about since last year when we bought a couple of windsocks for the garden. I was surprised at how little there is to a windsock. It occurred to me that a windsock could be made out of plastic soda pop bottle or a plastic milk jug and plastic grocery bags.

The above photo is the result of my attempts. Not bad, they fly pretty well. I wish I had of had some more different colors of plastic bags. I can imagine a windsock made out of a rainbow of colors blowing in the wind.

I think the windsocks are kind of a neat way to recycle a little bit of trash into something a bit fun.

You’re welcome to click on either of the images below to get an idea of how I created the windsocks.
These aren’t tutorials, so if you want more info, just ask and I’ll try and explain how or what I did.
