My picture of the day. BIRD BATH

Please click on the picture to see it large.


  1. Hi Tatyana

    Well, that's a pretty top notch bird bath.

    Like the Nicotiana by the way.


  2. Super picture of those Nicotina but I bet the birds were fed up!

  3. Oh please please please GIV it to ME!!!!!

  4. Looks lovely but are there drain holes if it is a bird bath?

  5. Don't you worry, bird lovers! The bath is still for the birds! Nicotiana is just waiting to be planted in the pots.

  6. Is that your birdbath? That is gorgeous. Lovin the nicotiana also.


  7. That's a nice idea (though I understand it's not meant to be permanent). I really like your "smell the flowers" header.

  8. Gorgeous photo! This would make a beautiful greeting card!

  9. Oh so pretty! Maybe you should keep the Nicotiana in there and get another bird bath. It looks really great! -Jackie

  10. Lovely composition. Beauty in the garden is so fleeting anyway. Enjoy each garden picture for what it is.

  11. Hey Tatyana,

    Please stop by my blog I have an award for you,

  12. Tatyana, BEAUTIFUL ornate and will last a life-time! And it looks heavy! Can't wait to see where you put it.

  13. Oh Tatyana, what a beautiful photo this is. I'm glad the birds will still get to use that pretty birdbath even if it does make a great planter!

  14. Nice photo! Also, I gave you an award; it's on my blog:

    Your blog is wonderful to see and visit. I like your photography too.

    I did begin a new blog, the other day, about the flowers that bloom here and opened it to the public. If you are interested.

    Our Flower Pot

  16. That is a wonderful think to do with a bird bath! It looks so pretty blooming like that and I will bet the birds like that too~

  17. Thank you everyone! I'm sorry I don't answer individually. It's just so many things to do in the garden! I'm glad you liked this composition. Last year, it was a pot with a fern that stood in the bird bath. This bath is my favorite piece in the garden. It is heavy and it's place is right here, on the back patio. I can see it through the glass doors in the breakfast area. Nicotiana is a plant from my childhood. My Mom had it in our garden. I don't know why, but I never had it in my own garden. I got it several days ago and I'm very happy. It has the same smell as ... many-many years ago. Thank you for your thoughts.

  18. It's lovely, and I like the pot next to it, too.

  19. Sue, thanks for noticing that pot! That pot is one of the bargains that I think I will remember for the rest of my life. It is big and heavy. We bought two of them, $25 each, in Seattle's Far Fetched Furniture, on sale. One of them got a huge crack because it got hit by one of my boys riding a bicycle. I think about this bargain every time when I see weird 3-digit prices on such size pots these days.

  20. Nice way to use a birdbath! We have one but it's not quite deep enough for planting. I know the birdies need water but am a little freaked out by the Audubon Society guidelines for using one properly, which seems to include daily water changing and frequent bleach washing. Ugh! Flowers seem much nicer and less chemically invasive!

  21. So, are you still able to use the cracked one? I haven't noticed prices on pots this year, because I am not letting myself buy any. I am planting fewer pots this year than usual, seeing if it makes a difference in how long it takes to water and take care of them. Part of the reason is because of my gardening across the street.

    It's hard, though, because there are certain plants that we think we need to get every year.

  22. Oh we have a thing for lions and I love that bird bath!


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
