Purging and/or re-purposing ... I took this old kinda ugly three arm brass lamp ... removed the wiring and sockets with plans to make a hanging bird-feeding lamp. I set it in a heavy resin base from another lamp to work on it.
Used three aluminum vintage cake pans, drilled holes for drainage and lined them with a piece of wood.
Attached them to the arms and center post. Four large feeding trays ... so inviting. Decided to leave it as a table lamp feeder instead of hanging it.
set it on the "table" .... and filled each pan with birdseed.
Next morning ...
dear oh DEER ... i should have know better !!!
I straightened the bent pans ... took everything apart ... turned everything over and hung it in my bird feeding station where it should have been in the first place. The birds love it. The deer can get to it, but not knock it down.
I guess you noticed that I do not have plants in my pots on the left ... too hot ... too dry and too many hungry deer.
Thanks for your visit ... hope you will let me know you were here.
Yes, we do have deer in our yard ... every day ...
... our regular family ... there are more out of the picture
two sets of twins were added this year.
