And Here's Another Weird Thing............

.............................This


It was fixed to the pergola, you can see it there,

and someone asked what it was. As far as I can see it's just a decorative bottle thingy, though sister-in-law said it looked like a old fashioned  bedpan for men! Maybe it should be fixed  to have water pouring out of it over a pond?

Whatever it is it will probably be attached somewhere else when the pergola comes down, just so that in another 20 years someone can look at it and wonder what it is.

And another mystery............................I planted out some chard plants...............completely GONE! , no sign they were ever there. My guess is the pair of ducks we have around. Next planting.........and luckily I didn't tip out the rest of the seedlings..................will be covered.

Back Soon

  2. It has a pretty design on it. I think I'd be tempted to plant something in it. X

  4. It's either part of a water fountain, or a nesting box for birds I think. I've seen both with that sort of design on it. I'd hang it and plant something.

  9. I googled aged ceramic bottle bird house and this is what I found

    Apparently it is inspired by the ceramic bird houses found in the excavations of Colonial Williamsburg. in Virginia USA
    I see there is a bird bath in the same pottery as well.
