Bird Bath Tutorial
I went on a garden tour a couple weeks ago. This is an annual event for two of my friends and myself. It takes place in one of our suburban towns and is sponsored by the town's Arts Society. This particular town considers gardening to be an art (and I agree). The residents of this town who are involved in the arts are usually members of this Arts Society and volunteer their time, talents and gardens for this, their biggest fundraiser of the year. Therefore, all the gardens on the tour have a plein aire artist sitting at an easel and painting in the garden. Many of the gardens have live music in the garden supplied by members of the Arts Society. The atmosphere is fragrant with the sound of music, lovely snacks, beautiful paintings coming to life and exquisite gardens.At one of the gardens on the tour, I noticed a lovely birdbath that the home's owner had made. I fell, immediately, head over heels, in love and determined that I would make one. I am so delighted with it and I think you will be too. Here's a picture of the one I made for my hosta garden.
