Using my birdbath to plant succulents; don't want the standing water around for the skeeters and the nasty stuff they are carrying these days!

It doesn't have drainage holes, per sei, but I created one, by breaking the birdie off, so that water trickles out where the base meets the bowl.

This is an old picture,,this year has different plants in it, but,,no cammie!

I have made stepping stones out of rhubarb leaves and put wire mesh between layers of concrete for sturdiness. I have posted them on other parts of the forum but here they are again

It's always a good idea to wear a mask when mixing concrete.
