Bird Bath

I found a big basin [not an antique one].   Once cleaned up, it looked like a mighty fine birth bath, so I turned my old gazing globe stand upside down [Lost the gazing globe in a snow-falling-off-the-studio-roof incident.] and voila!  a bird bath for the bottom terrace.   It makes a lovely focal point for the main axis of the garden looking from the road to the terraces.
It looks great with the iris and poppies.     That's oregano beneath it. 

What have you repurposed lately?


  1. Brilliant! And it's so pretty. I don't think I've repurposed anything lately, but my memory is so bad that I can't remember even if I did.

  2. Ah, that is lovely. And by the way, I don't believe that is actually your yard. It's too perfect. I think you're photoshopping Better Homes & Gardens pictures.

    As for repurposing, I repurpose stuff all the time. But none of it is pretty. For example, yesterday I repurposed a rake by flipping it upside down and using the handle to roll a ginormous wad of trimmed tree/bush branches into the compost/wood pile/white-trash area of the back yard.

    I love repurposing. For reals.
