Ok so maybe it's not totally free because you have to drink some lucozade first from one of the handy smaller bottles.
Why lucozade? That's because the bottle is not printed so the design comes off as a 'plastic sleeve' leaving a lovely clean bottle behind with no paper or glue still stuck to it. It's also slightly more elegant than some bottles and looks a bit better than a huge 'coke' or 'fanta' bottle which would probably look more like the wind had blown rubbish into your trees.

It would seem according to google that more people search for Bird Feeders than Bird Tables.
However analysis of my own garden bird feeding equipment reveals that bird seed is consumed in greater quantities from my bird tables than from the hanging bird feeders. Birds are extremely wary and seem to prefer either the hanging bird table or the freestanding bird table allowing all round vision and a quick escape and also easier to reach feed but there is anothe...Read Full Post »

So there I saw an opening to create a...Read Full Post »

Which is a shame because fast forward a week to today and my garden is full of birds battling to reach the seed on my bird table...Read Full Post »

I started to think about the business I was in and realised that it was probably the MOST ETHICAL Business model that could ever be designed.
Why? Lets look at it in its simplest form. You design products , offer them for sale at a stated price. People buy them and are happy with the service ,product and price.
So far so good and already leagues ahead of the finance industry and the NHS in term...Read Full Post »

Ok here is something to think about before you take part in that DANGEROUS GAME of buying someone a Christmas Present.

Thought I would do a little drawing of a Blue Tit, used to be an artist years ago but gave it up for paid work. It seems I didn't quite lose all my skills. maybe I should do signed A4 prints of bird drawings . . what do you think?
