A trip into town yesterday yielded no ½" hose. Not one. So the birdbath is cobbled together using rocks to direct the water.
Now directing water with rocks is something I have done hundreds upon hundreds of times, but I had a collection of hoses to rival a hardware store. So unless I can find a hose at an auto parts store, drive two hours to find one or order one online, I shall have to be happy with the rocks. But I'm not.
By the way, birds started visiting last night. They would have a drink, but not one dared to get his feet wet. Maybe today.
Of course, it's about to rain. I don't know if birds bathe in the rain. Do they?
We desperately need the rain. My creek is dry. Burn bans are in force all around. So I'll take the rain and wait until I can find a ½" hose.
Don't forget, I wrote a book, "A Practical Guide to Building and Maintaining your Pond." Download it here.
What you can't find in the book, you can probably find at my website, pondlady.com
