Bird Bath Fountain

I saw this birdbath 'fountain' at a friend's house years ago and love this idea so much I keep it in my gardens.
I consider it a classic that never outwears its welcome! 
It's very simple to put together. Two different sizes of birdbaths and a finial, stacked on top of each other.
It gives the effect of a fountain without the work of one. This is surrounded by lavender...
another classic that doesn't wear out its welcome here!
I love the patina the years have given to it. The birds love it too, when it'clean and keep water in it!
It really is easy-peasy with a rich look.

That does have a lot more presence than just a birdbath. Cute idea!

Your yard is beautiful! I love the bird bath fountain, what a great idea. Who needs water? Well, maybe the birds, but it looks totally awesome! Thanks for sharing this beauty.

Your garden is lovely! I LOVE your birdbath fountain. I agree with you...the patina is wonderful! It's looks beautiful surrounded by the lavender.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Oh... I loved this tip. I always want a really big bird bath or fountain but can't afford one. I am going to try this.

What a wonderful idea! I love the height it gives your area as well. Beautiful focal point! And I so agree... nothing like lavender!

I love this idea. Sure makes for a easy birdbath. It's nice to have more than one as business is always booming during mating season...cleanliness is a must!
Beautiful...I found you at Fishtail Cottage and now following you...

I'm here through Flora Cottage Thursdays. Love your birdbath tiers! Very classic. Looks lovely, too, with the lavender - which I bet smells wonderful.

This garden is straight out of dreamland...it is dreamy. Can I have one, please. Seriously, I love the design of the garden, not just the birdbath.

I would have never thought of this idea. I've been looking to put another bird bath in front yard, and this idea will work well. Thanks. Very nice post.

Pretty area and that fountain adds stunning looks. Your lilacs are so gorgeous! Your flowers are fantastic that you had one theme color for them. Been busy for Easter. Sorry for my late visit but my post is not late :) Hope you can visit my Fertilizer Friday here.
