I'd like to show you my vintage bird bath. I used to work at a floral shop and greenhouse. We grew a lot of our own greens, and exotics in the greenhouse. The grounds had gorgeous gardens and statuary items. This bird bath was the owners cherished piece. I fell in love with it the very first time I saw it. It dates back to the 1930's.
I told Jerry if he ever decided to part with the bird bath, I would definately be interested in purchasing it. After Jerry passed away, his family gave the bird bath to me. I was soooo happy to receive it. When we moved to the lakehouse, we arranged a secret garden spot for my cherished piece.
Hubby just gave my little blue bird a fresh coat of paint last week. She always sits on the edge of the bath....inviting all the other birds in for a bath, or a drink of fresh water.
Hubby built the little shed for me to keep the hose, and a few other garden tools in...but the plants started spreading inside the little building. So we left the door off, and just let things grow where ever they wanted.
The honeysuckle is finished blooming, as are the lilacs. The iris, daylilies, and cranesbill geraniums are also finished for the season. Now it's the oregano, and blackeyed susans turn.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the vintage bird bath, as much as I loved showing it to you.
Have a happy Show and Tell Friday.
