Oh yes, I do like your bird bath Tony and I'm sure the birds will as well as long as you can keep those two cheeky gnomes away from it! Lol. Your front garden is very neat and tidy, but perhaps as there is not much in it, you're new rose cuttings when grown could be perfect.What do you think!

Hi Rose Oddley enough Rose we have seen quite a few sparrows already bathing in the bird bath. What with feeding and bird box houseing our rear lawn is a blinking holiday resort for Robins, sparrows and Bluetits. Front garden will house some of my cuttings soon Rose. I grow them but my good lady plants them. Got some Hebe,Periwinkle,and ivy cuttings ready for the front garden plus several Fuchia cuttings. What a mixture. Take care Rose.

Well that is a mixture, and I will look forward to seeing pictures of those! Its amazing how quick birds soon find new feeders and bird baths, isn't it.They must go and tell all their friends! Lol.

Take care Rose . Tony

Will look forward to those Tony. I love to watch the birds bathe. poor Tiny, doesn't he like water?

Hii Rose Very heavy rain here today Rose. Lost count of birds using the bath. Tried Tiny again but not a sausage he prefers a dash of budgie shampoo in his spray water(LoL). He excels at kissing visitors though hence his red beak. Mention bath and he waddles off to be with someone who he has in his spell. Tried to update his hygene but he would,nt have it. I use Val,s old scent spray on him he does,nt stand a chance of avoiding the first spray. He vanishes around the third spray very upset and disgruntled. Take care Rose . Tony
