Just in time for a Mother’s Day project, I found a cracked birdbath sitting in a neighbor’s curbside trash. I have been saving little bits of things to make some fairy gardens and this just plopped into my lap (actually the front passenger seat of my car).
Although it looks more extensive, this project took just forty-five minutes to put together, not including the heaving and hauling of the very heavy birdbath to and from the car!
Here’s what you need:
an old birdbath or planter of your choice with drainage holes
some stones, pebbles and potting soil
small perennial plants (I used wooly thyme, whorled stonecrop sedum “Larinem Park”, stonecrop sedum “Coral Carpet” and Armeria “Morning Star White”
a fairy and some tiny garden accents
# 1 Put some stones in the bottom of the birdbath for drainage
# 2 Add potting soil, mounding it in the center
# 3 Now add the plants, leaving a little spot or two for your accents
# 4 Add accents and decorative pebbles
So my secret is out ~ I am a trashpicker of the highest order! But didn’t we have fun?
