Flower of the Day – Go for it!

You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens.

A Little DIY Project

On Pinterest I saw a lot of DIY birdbath ideas that looked fairly simple to make. So this evening I decided to make one.

My goal was to take photos of each step but once you are in a flow you sometimes forget to pause to take a pic of the progress.

What I used:

  • 4 plastic flower pots
  • PVC pipe about 2 1/2 feet (left from a past project).
  • Metal serving tray
  • Spray paint (left from a past project)
  • Gorilla glue
  • Gravel & a few stone for a fish tank

I think if you bought all the items you would spend approximately $20.00/$25.00. The gravel and stone choices will vary the price a bit.

I spent a total of $11.00 for this project. Most of the stuff I already had left over from other projects.

I drilled a 1 inch hole in the bottom of the pots then I painted them.

While I waited for them to dry I put the PVC in the ground about 6 inches.

Now that the pots have dried I put them over the PVC and glued them together.

Once I was satisfied with that, I put the serving tray on top and glued to the top of the flower pot.

Now it is time to add the gravel, stone, and water.

Tomorrow I will add some touchup paint to cover where the glue dripped and take a picture from the top so you can see the gravel and stone I used.

I will be putting mulch and edging around it to make it stand out a bit more.

$15.00 Chicks

Pope’s Garden not only has baby Wren birds they have baby turkeys too. These chicks, Royal Palm Turkeys, were born on June 15 and are selling for $15.00 per chick.

Momma Turkey kept moving so that she stayed between me and the chicks.

Flower od the Day 7/16/19 – Acceptance

Let us accept truth, even when it surprises us and alters our views.

Eyes Wide Shut

Today I went to a local nursery called Pope’s Garden. My goal was to get some pictures of flowers for my Flower of the Day post.

I pictured of some great flowers that I hope to add to my collection soon.

A great surprise was waiting for me…4 BABY BIRDS and one unhatched egg.

They must have recently hatched as their eyes were just these big black spots on sort tiny fragile bodies.

Their bodies are laying on top of each other’s so it’s a little hard to see the 4th one.

The owner of Pope’s Garden says that they are baby Wrens.

Thanks for visiting I hope you enjoyed my surprise too!
