Friday Favorite: Bird Baths

May 24th, 2013

A couple weeks ago we were at a local greenhouse and I spotted this lovely concrete birdbath.  It’s quite a beauty, intricate, yet understated.  I’ve always wanted a birdbath in my garden, they’re my favorite form of garden ornamentation.
Somehow, I have never had a birdbath and most likely won’t for quite a while.  If you want a nice one they’re rather pricey, I think this one was $190.   There are always so many other things that take up my garden budget long before I can even think about adding a birdbath to my garden. Perhaps I’ll find one under the Christmas tree some year.

Do you have a birdbath in your garden?  What’s your favorite garden ornament?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
