Comments about HUMMINGBIRD WITH FLOWER STAKE:

Overall a great gift for hummingbird fans. The prongs that go into the ground need to be about twice as long to make it more secure. Not a hard fix.

      Comments about HUMMINGBIRD WITH FLOWER STAKE:

      the intentional rusting makes this sculpture an everchanging study.The body of the hummingbird is rust free,but everything else rusts. The color changes with the light, and the bird "flutters" on its spring when the wind blows. Also, the heavy metal look, contrasts with the airiness of the hummingbird,making an artistic statement.Pretty cool.

          Comments about HUMMINGBIRD WITH FLOWER STAKE:

          For the previous reviewer - steel/iron made garden pieces are intended to rust unless treated with a specific rust preventitve powder coating like you will notice in outdoor furniture. We have several pieces of sculpture in our gardens which rusted shortly after we placed them since we live in the very wet PNW area of the country. Part of the charm of these pieces of art is the natural rust. I always look for powder coating in outdoor furniture made of iron since no one would want to sit on rusted chairs or eat on rusted tables, but ornamental decor items are nice in a natural state. This is a great item! My husband who created and cares for the beautiful gardens here at our home and whom the hummers here adore because he feeds them every season, really likes this item. We have a similar one that is free standing, as though the hummer is flying, made for us by a local artist.

              I purchased this more than a month ago and had it sent directly to my parent's house. They live at a bit of a distance, so the first time I got a chance to see it was yesterday when we were visiting for Father's Day - what a disappointment! It is completely rusted! It's a positively adorable sculpture and I had considered buying one for myself as well, but I was so sad to see that it's completely brown. I think my mother only still had it out so I would see it. There were no instructions whatsoever on treating it before using and of course, it's supposed to be for outdoor use, so I just don't get it - a nice patina is one thing but rust in another! Too expensive to see this happen...
