    The plant behind the bird bath is a Morning Glory plant that my grandfather gave me a couple of weeks ago. I empty it often I just pour it on the plants when I water them, being in Florida it seems that we always have mosquitoes. My daughter wants to find some plants that repel them because they eat her little boys up.

    I love how you created a new birdbath, Laurie. Buy some mosquito dunks for it (and anywhere else you might have standing water). They're harmless to other wildlife.

    That's really cool and very creative.

    I have the same old birdbath I bot at an aucion. The bowl has a crack in it, so the whole thing has set aside for a few yrs. now. It's so-o-o-oo heavy, made of concrete I think, that I'm not sure I can work witth it w/my back issues, but have been tempted to paint it for years, too, as I love to paint anything & everything! LOL I've been years trying to get a big enuf of a planter drip pan to put in it to hold the water, too. TY 4 posting! You've got my painting juices flowing. (wink)!

    Pam, The birdbath was very heavy! I had a friend help me carry it to where I wanted it and that is where I painted it.
