If you can't find it, make it yourself

I was getting frustrated trying to find a small bird bath to hang in our little dead tree here at Whispering Pines.  The tree's not much to look at, but it makes a great bird feeder, and that saves me from having to set up mine.

They all seemed to be the large, heavy ones that sit on the ground.  If we were here more, I'd buy one and leave it in the garden for next year, but our stay is too short.

So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and create one.  With a small piece of chain and some shower hooks attached to a plastic plant tray it is just perfect for my use.

It's small, lightweight and will store easily during travel.

Long Live the Queen of Bird Baths


  1. How do the shower hooks hold on/ did you make holes?

  2. I love watching the birds take baths. They really enjoy it, and George loves watching them, too.

  3. What a great idea!!! I have a beautiful homemade feeder/spa that a friend made for me and I'll be putting it out in the garden soon. I think homemade is super!! You have a fabulous day, hugs, Edna B.
