Butterfly watering station
Just wanted to share my weekend project with everyone.
I have been wanting to attract butterflies to my garden. I found an article on the subject and it said to make a watering station and surround it with flowers that attract butterflies.
This is what I came up with.
I bought a 16 " terracotta saucer, a 14" terracotta pot, one can of blue spray paint, and a tube of ceramic glue.
I spray painted the pot and saucer and let it dry. Then I got out my stencils, brushes and paints and painted the design on. I glued the saucer to the bottom of the pot and wala!! a butterfly watering station. I filled the saucer with a mixture of sand and top soil. soaked it with water and added small river stones to it for little islands so the butterflies have a place to rest while they drink. Monday I will go and buy the plants to go around it.
