Cottage Style Party & Birdbaths in the Garden






I love watching the birds drinking and bathing in my birdbaths!



I have lots of birdbaths in my garden.

Lots.






Some, like this one above, are on stands and I can see from any where in my garden.





This one rests on the ground and is a favorite bathing spot for the robins.





This is the latest one I bought because I love the little birds resting on it!





This one has a solar fountain in it for a nice splashing sound (when the sun is out).
The robins like to leave worms in here when they stop in for a drink.

Yuck.




This tiny one is popular with chickadees and wrens. 
They hide in the flowers below and sneak in for a quick sip.




This one is close to the bird feeders and is always low in water and needs cleaning.
The fat squirrels like to jump on the rim which tips it over on to the ground.

I have bad squirrels.






To keep your birdbath water clean, put a drop or two of vinegar in the water.

Easy!





Do you have birdbaths in your cottage garden?








Hello Friends!

Welcome to this weeks

Cottage Style Party!

#94





How's everyone doing this week?

Let's just jump right in and find out…





I just love lilacs and my supply this year was very tiny due to the severe pruning of my neighbors lilac bush last year.


Thankfully I can enjoy these beauties! Trisha's quest to find lilacs was answered and we can all enjoy them! 
Drop by Trisha's blog American Honey Home to see hers.
Mmmm…smells so sweet!









This is just a hint of how cute this vintage tablecloth was before it was saved.


This was Katie's Moms old tablecloth that was well used and loved. It had a few issues and recycled into an adorable table runner! Stop by Katie's blog Katie's Farm to see the finished product.










Reading Laurie's post about the first antique market of the year caught my eye as I just attended one myself this past weekend.
While I was there to sell, Laurie scored some excellent finds at hers!


How pretty is this pink and cream floral quilt? It's just one of Laurie's many wonderful finds!
(Yes, I am jealous…)
Go visit her blog Heaven's Walk to see all of her fab finds!

  4. I love the fact that you have so many birdbaths, Deb! It must be so much fun watching all the birds splashing around all over your yard! We have two and have seen not only squirrels drinking from them, but deer and turkeys too! Thank you so much for including my flea market adventure with your features this week! You made my day so special! :)

  6. Oh - I love all of your birdbaths! My favorite is your newest one. It looks antique, or at least nearly antique, with the bits of rust showing through. Just gorgeous! I don't have a birdbath right now, but I plan to someday get one and it was lovely to see yours! Thanks for hosting the blog hopping party.

  7. Hi Deb, you have some lovely birdbaths. Love your newest one and the blue lined one lying on the ground! I just realized that I have 5. One I just use for display and I haven't pulled it out yet. I'm thinking of turning an old one that I got at a yard sale into a fairy garden. The other three are always in my garden. Thanks for hosting. Been busy and haven't had much time to party lately.
    hugs,
    Jann
