Well It stopped raining long enough for me to go outside and photograph my newly made bird feeders. One of the designs I have improved on as I wanted to be sure when someone buys one they can last a life time. Well unless they have a football playing son who breaks them like me, but that's another story and I share it with you later. My improved design is now drilled and uses a metal fitting, before I used a really strong china adhesive. Here's three but I have more, the first one uses a side plate so is a little bigger than the others but it's very pretty and would make a lovely Mother's day gift.
Here are some others I photographed today, the topsy turvy design is great for a fat ball and then add seed on top. These are again bigger than my others I would struggle to drink all the tea from the blue one.
Going back to my son playing football in the garden, he knocked over my vintage glass bird bath which I was really proud of. It had survived really harsh frosts and snow but was no match for my boy. If your worried about china bird feeders surviving a frost, it's usually a sudden change in temperature that breaks china e.g. taking a cup out of the fridge/freezer and placing it in the oven/hot water or vice versa. I have teacup bird feeders in my garden for over 4 years in all weathers and they're still here and I'm sure my bird bath would be if it wasn't for my son.
