    So many ideas for this: potted flowers or herbs, patio table if the stones are "glued", etc. I have dug out enought stones over the past 2 years which are just staked in a corner of the yard. Thank you so much.

    My Father never had a bought bird bath; he always used a garbage can lid. That was in the 1940's up to the time of his death in 1981. The birds loved it. They could grip they little feet on the rim of it, which helped them balance themselves.

    Where to get birds? I am having problems locating affordable ones.

    I pick them up at a gift shop in our Farmer's Market and sometimes find one at a yard sale here and there, Deb Marciano

    "use what you have". That's my new motto too. I just made a little walk with old bricks that were in a pile for years. I love the stacked look.
