Bird Bath

This was seen on Rebecca's Garden a few years ago..Three clay planting pots, different sizes and a clay tray, that goes under the pots..You pick the size..Stack them upside down, large on the bottom, next size bit smaller, and then the last pot, now put the clay tray on top for water..I hope you have the idea..It is just that simple.
You can paint the pots and the tray that you put the water in, if you want..I made one and gave it away, so I can't show you the results..They are so cute and the size depends on you. Large bird bath, work with the larger pots, small bird bath, work with smaller pots.. I painted mine.
Used a beautiful blue, the rim of the pots were yellow, and the tray blue/yellow..painted a few fish in the tray..I varnished them, so the painting would hold up in the weather, plus easier to clean...With spring here and the birds all around, you will find this a nice attraction to your garden/deck. Even get the children involved..It isn't a real expensive project and one that is fast..The birds will love you..

Till next time, keep looking up..

That sounds lovely! I love having a bird bath. Last summer we had a red tail hawk cooling his butt in ours for more than half an hour. So fun.
