Stone leftover from another project and three galvanized trash can lids become a bird bath grouping! Another of my "use what you have" ventures. More pictures and directions on http://ourfairfieldhomeandgarden.com
1 Hour Easy

Sue, I had a problem with squirrels and my bird feeders. My solution might work for you if
you have trees. I ran 3/16 stranded wire cable from the feeder up to an eye hook on the bottom of a limb. Then I ran the cable thru another eye hook where the limb meets the trunk. Then I ran it down the trunk to boat cleat. I pull the feeder up about 8 feet off the ground and tie on the cable to the cleat. I only lower it to refill the feeder.
My serviceberry is fruiting right now. I have to get there before the birds each day but enjoy eating handfuls of the little apple-tasting fruit. It's an excellent native tree: attractive flowers, tasty fruit and brilliant fall color!

Thanks, Walter, in Fayetteville I tried Andy's and Turnipseed's Nurseries and neither one had
serviceberry. I'm still looking. I may have to schedule a trip to Grayson.
