So, last year I enjoyed the garden spinners so much that the last time I
was in Dollar Tree, in January, when I saw they had the new spring stuff
coming in, I went a little overboard.
Last year I had seven spinners. I have twice that many, now, so I decided
to double them up. And, because they are apparently subject to weathering,
which is stupid for something that's meant to hang outside but they're a
dollar so whatever, I'm staggering their appearance out back.
I hung up the first set on March 22. Today I hung up the second set.
Here's a closeup of todays addition:
You may notice a little green thing on the top of the bottom spinner. I
have a ton of glow beads, and I decided to add one to my construction.
Although your eyes *really *have to be accustomed to the dark to see them
about eight hours in, for at least a good four hours or so after sunset I
expect to be able to see them floating in the dark quite clearly. Little
stationary plastic fireflies. Anyway, this is the first time I've tried
it, and I only installed this set of spinners this morning, so I'll have to
wait until this evening to see how well the glow bead works. Right now
there's just this one, but if it looks cool they'll all get one or more
beads added as I put them together.
