cobalt blue bird bath

I fought temptation awhile back when these bird baths showed up at a local grocery store wearing $59.99 price tags. Even though the price was good, I didn't like the base. However.. now I wonder if they hadn't stood the bases upside down.. because this has a good, solid base with a locking top. It IS too deep but with the addition of a few items and the little rock pump thingie, the little birdies should find it usable. I'd only gone to the store to get some hamburger for lasagna, but the birdbath jumped out at me waving its $39.99 price tag. How could I not purchase it? (I'd have kicked myself had I just walked away.) Of course, I may still kick myself when some forgotten bill shows up in my mailbox and my budget is $39.99 too short. LOL

Beautiful blue! Of course you had to take it home.

I didn't know Carmichael had such big snails ... on the coast they're called abalone.

Just curious, where did you get it? It is very pretty and I am looking for one for a client...

Plant Lady, I got it at Raley's! I have not seen them there lately but there are a couple of smaller cobalt blue bird baths at Wild Birds Unlimited in Sacramento!

I found these at London Drugs, and they were so beautiful I bought one for my front flower bed, and one for the backyard as well. I put a rock in the centre for the birds to stand on, and the birds refuse to use it. Any ideas why? Do they not like the colour?

the color of the birdbath really has no bearing on whether or not the birds will use it. I just moved my blue one nearer the house AND it now contains a tiny rock fountain.. birds are loving it. Before, they had ignored it.
