Happy Someday

Someday has arrived.  My Someday, that is, because I bought an orange to put into the lantern that I'm re-purposing as a bird feeder hoping to get some Orioles in my garden.


Well, it doesn't sit very straight in the base (and I tried lots of ways) but I trimmed a bit of the peel to expose more of the orange flesh.  I do like the orange reflection it makes. And, I think I'll ask Mike to put a nail up through the bottom for me to pierce the orange onto.  That should help.

Let's see what it attracts, if anything.
Someday is NOW........
Have a great new week.

  1. Well I can't wait to see what bird will be attracted by this orange or just the lantern that I like very much! I have one sitting in the garden and another one hanging on the back gallery. Wishing you a happy Someday !...🤓Hugs

  3. What a great lantern! Fingers crossed you see the Orioles. The smell will attract other fruit eaters too, I am sure. You could cut one in half and pop it on the top of the lantern, too, by the look of it.
    Looking forward to hearing the good news and maybe a photo.

  4. Dear Carol - this is a super idea. I have no oranges but late May and the first part of June we had Baltimore Orioles in our woods. They are beautiful birds. Hope you get some for taking control of your someday :)!! Hugs

    1. Well Debbie, all I've had visit that orange is one bumble bee and he didn't hang around long. LOL
      I hope you are doing well.

  5. A clever idea, Carol. Let us know when they arrive! Your container (lantern) is an inventive idea! Orioles are so colorful and fun to watch. We have a pair that occasionally come by to our feeder. But, the bats come by at night and have their share. All birds are such fun to watch. I can see how people take up bird-watching as a past time.

    1. Carol, I was wondering if bats would come by during the night. I've only ever seen one bat here and that was when we first moved here 11 years ago. I was sitting on my bed which was up against the window. The window was open because it was warm weather and a bat came and landed on the screen right behind my head. It was so creepy. I saw it in the mirrored closet doors across the room in front of me and screamed. Scared the bejeepers out of my hubby too. They serve their purpose by eating mosquitos and things but they are creepy critters for sure. Thanks for visiting. Hope you are enjoying your day.
