Today’s GPOD comes from LeAnn Locher, a storyteller and gardener in Portland, Oregon. She says:
“We’ve created a water feature in our garden using a rain chain with water dropping into and recirculating from a pot. It’s nestled in among roses and jasmine, and is the single biggest attraction for birds visiting our garden. While we enjoy the sound and the sight, blue jays perch on the edge and drink from the “cups.” But the hummingbirds? They’ll zoom by my head if it’s not on, sending the message loud and clear to turn on their their favorite bath. Sure enough, I turn it on and the tiny little hummingbirds splish and splash in there, not even bothered if I sneak up with my camera.”
Thanks for sending in this great photo, LeAnn!
