For The Birds

The sun finally came out and stayed out so I haven't spent much time potting this week.  Instead I have been outside at every chance, catching up on all the stuff that needs doing.  The grass was so long the next step would have been a hay baler!

The birds were looking for water for baths, the upturned lids and shallow pans were working just fine.  The birdies probably don't care but I do so I knew it was time to get out the bird baths.  These are the ones I have kept over the last twenty-five years or so.  I also use them as pasta platters and even have carved a small turkey on one.  

Some of them have cracks which I mended with epoxy, others had flaws I wasn't pleased with.  The birds seem to enjoy them.







The sun is out again.  I think I finally have managed to get the pool balanced; it just needs a good vacuuming and we are set to swim....again!

This post can also be found over on  Mud Colony.  Everyone should take a look to see clay around the world!

Enjoy the day, and as always, thanks for stopping by...........*s*

  4. Dearest Suzi,
    Oh, your birds must be bragging about their fine pottery for drinking and bathing. Epoxy can do a lot for us but if it is no more pleasing, this is an excellent use.
    Enjoy your garden and the pool.
    Happy week ahead.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

    1. Hi Lori....I hope they enjoy them. I think they really are just as happy with trash can lids.
