Recycled Birdbath needed a new birdbath, so my husband made this one out of an old water pump and some barn wood. It has a copper insert and a continuous pump underneath, with a door for easy access for cleaning. In the winter, we shut the pump off but keep a heater inside. The birds love it! —Aleta Grubish, Chalk Hill, Pennsylvania
A manual well pump, discovered near the barn, becomes a permanent lawn fixture and reminder of the property's farming heritage.
