Bird Bath Planter

 The bird bath did not fare well over the winter and the cracks in the pottery caused by freezing weather were too numerous to repair . I took a slightly smaller ( than the bird bath ) resin basin and placed it inside the bird bath so it could still hold water for the birds. Then I planted primroses all around in basin.
 Cheerful, don't you think ?
 Speaking of cheerful , how about my frizzled hen ? She's fluffy AND cheerful.

I've lost a couple of nice cement bunnies to the ravages of winter - after a few years they just crumbled away. At least you could repurpose the birdbath and I like the primroses surrounding the dish of water for the birds.
Bird baths make lovely planted containers on a pedestal and also a good place for a fairy garden.

So pretty! I bet the birds will enjoy the way you fancied up their bath! :) I love the picture of the hen too.

What a great idea for the bird bath!

Oh your adorable white frizzle. I had a tiny black bantam frizzle years ago, in my flock. She only lived 5 years bless her, but she left a lasting place in my heart. I have 4 very old bantams, who do not lay many eggs, but are very much treasured and everyone who visits falls in love with them when the pop out of a flower bed !
