The Repurposed Birdbath

I have about as must luck with attracting birds to a birdbath, as I do with growing most plants.  When I discovered that I actually had a knack for succulents it still remained a long journey to realizing that my underused birdbath and my happy succulents might be a marriage made in heaven.  So . . .


 . . . I went to the store and found two pots of varied succulents and filled the bowl with cactus soil.


I placed the pedestal in the repurposed spa
(old and useless and now filled with dirt)


One pot reset


Two pots reset


The bowl and the pedestal brought back together


And another mini-garden is added to the spa garden.

Wishing you all a blessed Sunday.

What a good idea. No one visited my birdbath either, so I was going to do something else with it, but then a few days ago I saw a flash of red out the window, and suddenly there was a cardinal visiting the tiny pond. Then only yesterday he was back, and a little sparrow as well. Guess I'll leave it for awhile.

How beautiful and clever done.
I like the way you stop before it's to much. Those mini succulents are nature's own magnificent work of sculpture.
And soooo exotic.

What a great idea.
In answer to your question, a culvert is a metal pipe running under the ground in a ditch to drain water in a roadway.. B

That's a great idea. I have a feeling that if we had a spa, something like this would happen to it.

GREAT idea! Did you come up with this? You should sell it to a magazine!
