Turning a Broken Bird Bath into a Planter
By Tidy Brown Wren, bringing order to your nest on Apr 26, 2012
After pondering for a bit, I decided to make a planter out of it. After all, it did have good drainage - in fact, it didn't hold water at all! I planted 2 types of sedum, 1 type of rockfoil (red flowers), and 1 type of lithodora (blue flowers). All of the plants like full sun, little water and are perennials. I also tried to get a combination of spring and summer bloomers so that there would be seasonal interest all during the growing season.
It's nice to see the funky little birdbath functioning again - even if it's not hydrating our birds.
