Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

My glass bird bath

A few weeks before Christmas I had mentioned to Mr C, that I had seen some lovely glass birdbaths at our local hardware store, but hesitated to buy one so near Christmas. Imagine my delight when I opened my Christmas gift to discover this lovely bird bath.

Mr C decided that the stand, which is sold separately, was not very substantial, so we will build our own, in fact I have a very sturdy metal plant pot stand which may be just the thing to hold the bird bath.

I love that the birds on the bath are goldfinch, which are abundant around our garden during the summer months.

I saw these bird baths in Southern States. I was leaning towards the butterfly and dragonfly ones. Very pretty aren't they! I did not see the stands.

I haven't seen those bird baths here in the north. It's always a surprise when we find out our husbands heard something we said.
