I bought this planter in the spring for the edge of my deck. Mostly the rain has provided the watering and the blooms were abundant. It needed some TLC but when I took it down to pull off the spent flowers, a bird flew out and the neighborhood of birds made such a squawk, I peaked in and their it was. A tiny nest with three eggs in it. I promptly put the planter back in place sans deadheading.
It's been dry so I needed to water the flowers. Using a long spouted sprinkling can, I poured water in from the edge. Once again, mama tolerated some but let me know when enough was ENOUGH. For now, I will leave it/her/them alone. After all, a mama has work to do. MUMS the word!
