I am such a bad bloggy friend. Jan @ Bobbypinsboardwalk always enters all my silly little games and I haven't done a Bragfest in so long!
Now, this seems it is the last one! I wish her the best of luck in her new job! Just as long as it doesn't take her away from blogdom!
Remember those hornworms? Yeah, stinky little buggers! I read on the internet that there is 2 ways, without chemicals, to get rid of them. Of course since I plucked those 7 off I haven't seen any more.
1. Invite wasps to your garden. Like Deborah @ The Fairfield House said the wasps lay their eggs on the hornworms and the larvae suck them dry. Ewwww! I don't want wasps since the garden is right next to the back patio where we spend our summer. Also the kids love exploring in the garden.
2. Attract birds. I guess to a bird this is a gourmet meal. Double ewwww! I hope they will take them elsewhere to munch on them.
Sooooo.... we need a birdbath. A feeder will just encourage the squirrels to come closer to the house.
Since I have been cleaning out the basement and realizing how much money I waste on crap, I decided to make my own birdbath. What can I use for a pedestal?
A little help from the Valley Girl and OMG! I got a pedestal! I used Gorilla Glue and glued 4 flower pots together.
Now for a dish to hold water....
Our next model, the Bitty One, is modeling one of those dishes that you put under a flower pot. Finally! The tray is on top!
Sorry, I just couldn't resist!

Ok, maybe we need a bit more....
I've tried to get pics of the birds in it. I even had a peregrine falcon visit! I tell them to wait while I go get my phone, but they don't listen.
So there ya have it! My easy peasy cheesy birdbath. Which by the way, cost 0 dollars to make!
