Makes sense. We live in a desert climate basically. Hot and dry. We tried for a while to keep the bird bath full, but eventually, we just gave up.
And so it sat. Lonely and empty in the backyard.
Until this winter.
This winter, The Mr built me a beautiful fountain in our bird bath, made from wine bottles and a wine rack. LOVE it! And the birds? Love it too!
And then? Just this month, we put an arbor over it. We're growing jasmine up the sides. Jasmine is one of my favorite plants - the scent is just beautiful. And you can also see our topsy-turvy planters hanging from it.
A closer look at the fountain. It's hooked into our irrigation system so that when the water level gets low, it automatically fills up!
I love listening to the sound of the fountain at night as we go to sleep. And hearing the birds in the morning as they splash in it. Everyone should have a water feature in their yard!
We'll take a closer look at the planters next week. But in the meantime, check out An Oregon Cottage for her weekly Garden Party.Pin It
