First, we had a terrific show in McKinney, TX, at the Collins County Master Gardeners Garden Show. Sales were good, but what made the show terrific was the volunteers! From the moment we arrived and many hands helped us unload until hands helped us load back up after the show, these Master Gardeners were wonderful! They even came around several times a day with snacks and drinks. These folks sure know how to make vendors feel welcome and appreciated.
We have a new retail store in Mattapoisett, MA. If you're in the area, be sure and stop by Wings N' Things at 61 Fairhaven Rd (Route 6). They have a new shipment of Ozarklake feeders as well as lots of other birding "stuff".
Ozarklake feeders will soon be at Susan's Garden in Medina, OH. This is a private farm petting farm. Call and make reservations for a fun day!
We also received 2 more boxes of Blenko Glass that we are making into feeders for them! So you'll soon be able to get a Blenko glass Ozarklake feeder right at the factory in Milton, WV. This is exquisite handcrafted glassware in stunning colors. If you're in the area, stop and take a factory tour.
We'll soon be heading off to the Jamestown (ND) Home and Garden Show followed by The Big One in Minot, ND. So the elves around here are busy right now!
And the super good news is that it is almost hummingbird and oriole season at our house! The migration map is showing that a hummer has been spotted in middle Arkansas, so they are on the move!
Hummingbird fact for today: Hummingbirds can fly in the rain and, like dogs, shake their heads to dispel d rops of water. Unlike dogs, however, a hummingbird shakes its head violently, 132 times per second, and rotating 202 degrees—all while flying and maintaining direction!
