Fun for Free – Bin Lid Bird Bath

Mostly this summer has been hot and dry, and when our ditch dried up we started worrying about our garden birds. There was no need to go out and buy a bird bath however as we remembered we had this bin lid (the bin itself has tomatoes growing in it):

Filled with water and sitting out on the lawn, it wasn’t long before it started to attract customers for drinks and baths.

So simple, but exactly what our garden friends needed. We were happy to help!

Plus: Fun for almost free…
Not quite free, but costing under £2, today Brian and his son have been dipping shop-bought pretzels in chocolate! A lot of fun for very little…they’ve not dried yet but we’ll be enjoying them later.

Chocolate dipped pretzels!
