Sown and Harvest #2

Welcome to my Sunday post dedicated to all things garden, landscape, and plant related.

Fickle weather. The last 2 days it has been brrrrrr coooolllddd. I  AM so OFFICIALLY sick of winter. I need spring. Like a month ago. bleh  Earlier in the week we had a day or so (really more like hours) of Spring-like weather. Even the birds were a bit confused!

Speaking of birds I have a few bird feeders around the yard but my big concrete bird bath was damaged in a storm this past summer.. I am debating if I want another bird bath because I REALLY want a water feature for my yard. I have been on the hunt for water features in my garden/ yard for some time. Regardless of the style I  choose it has to be solar powered.

I went searching the web and these are some of the water features that caught my eye.....

This one looks like stone but is actually resin priced at  $122.95. And it is sold only as solar powered.

Not exactly  a birdbath but I am sure the birds would enjoy it. These are ceramic glazed pots and I LOVE the blue glazing! $129.95

I LOVE  this! This could be a great ideal for me to DIY, Looks fairly inexpensive which is always a plus.

Love the look of this old fashioned hand pump. Practically screams cottage/ farmhouse garden!
I love the look of stacked rock. I have access to all the free rock I want from our creek bed. This was DIY'ed for $150, awesome!

They are all very different but I like them all for various  reasons. I am wondering if DIY will be the most effective? It would definitely allow me to have exactly what I envision. Now I have to  decide on which one. Anyone out their in blog-land have some good DIY water features they want to share?
