This ornate feeder is taller than myself, and looks wonderful in our flower gardens. I just put it out there, so I need to add some feed soon. It's in a location where it can be seen from the front porch, the back porch and anywhere I am at in the back garden. The kids love it and can't wait to watch the birds.
