^^ A good looking bird bath, Patty. Mine has an over the top external electrical cord and heating element at the bottom of the bowl that distracts from its looks. You might consider filling it closer to the rim for the little birdies and sealing the cord’s connection(s) with electrical tape.

​​​​​​ Thank you, Gary. I need to come up with a much better mount base. The wind here will throw that setup and tumble it a long way, when it comes which is about once a week. It wasn't level just sitting on the patio table and deck. I did buy two electrical connection covers on Amazon so I'll use one of them on that connection.

Since we're picking on patty...
Make sure that the cords to the bird feeder are on a GFI outlet.

Why do they alway made the electrical cords so short? I know the answer but it still bugs me!

Patty may I suggest a few rocks/stones in the bird bath. They will be much appreciated by the birds. I want to get a heated bird bath to go on our deck. In the summer our fish pond is a great attraction to the birds, raccoons and possums, yes, we do live in the city.

^Yes, they are, and it's even a covered outdoor outlet. I had electrical run for my fountain and spa last September so it's all kosher.

^Yes, I will try that.

Oh, it's worse than neat. I have a mop just for the garage and I use it after I vacuum it. I have my S2000 in the detached garage so I have lots of space in this one. If I ever sell my CA house I'll have four cars in CO so I made 4+ car garage a priority when I was CO house hunting. I love a big clean garage, or two!


^12-2017.

Fearful of my backyard hawks this is the first Bluejay that I‘ve seen within a week. Not a great shot…taken through my triple glazed kitchen window.

I Love Peanuts!
