It looks great, the colourful flowers compliment the design of the bird bath. Good one. Abwal.

Enrico, yes -salvia, cords, broms etc. :D

Tilly, it is beside the new walk in the 'rainforest' area.

Pam, I expect I will have to change the water often in summer to get rid of the wrigglers.

Hi Abwal, there is a product that you can buy that dispels the wrigglers... I don't know the name sorry.... I saw it at a nursery... it does NOT harm birds or fish.

Probably just easier (and cheaper) to use the water on the garden every few days and replace it with fresh. I don't imagine it would be terribly hard to empty?! :wink:
