On a typical sunny weekend afternoon, countless of individuals, men or women, across this country that will head out into their backyards, pruning shears in hand, and begin to cut and clip and trim the various plants and bushes that are growing there. We take great pride in the appearance of our backyards and gardens. We choose foliages in certain colors so that they look nice against the paint color of our house. We plant flowers that will emit particular aromas that we are fond of. We situate shrubs so that they will provide privacy from our neighbors, and yet not block whatever scenic view we desire.
A back yard requires constant attention in order to keep it weed free and appealing to the eye. Once all of the flowers have bloomed, and the shrubs have been trimmed, we can sit back and admire our hours of handy work. From the weeding, to the seeding and to the sodding. We spent many weekends in this backyard in order to create just the right look. Yet, as our keen eyes scan the yard, it may occur to us that something may be missing.
A backyard can show us more than just the visions of nature; we can also hear the sounds of nature if we choose to. The pride of many, other than those award winning roses planted in the back corner, may very well be the bird bath that has been placed directly in the middle of all of the eye catching foliage. Once the bird bath is filled with even a small amount of water, birds of all colors and sizes can and will be seen playfully splashing in your garden everyday.
The bird bath may be made of stone, pedestal style, with a squirrel carved into the trunk. The bird bath may even be copper that takes on a beautiful green patina as the years go by. This bird bath can even hang from a tree branch, designed for the smallest and lightest of our feathered friends. Filled with just enough water for the birds to stand what appears to be ankle deep, a bird bath will no doubt attract many visitors and fill our backyards with sounds of nature that seem to complete the feel of the type of garden you were aiming for.
If you enjoy nature, getting a bird bath for your garden adds some delightful sound for you. It is also a very thoughtful gift for friends. They will be able to enjoy both the sights and sounds of nature up close and personal from within their own backyard.
