Stage 3: Mushrooms!

Stage 3 of fixing the scar in our yard. In the corner of the fence where our waterfall used to be is a jumble of rocks and a broken birdbath. I liked the way the sedum grew up around the rocks, softening, and enhancing them. I also knew that there had to be a use for that broken birdbath. 
I saw a neat trick on Pinterest, and gathered up some bowls from my son's kitchen. He has other wood bowls so I knew he would not miss these. I found them at a thrift store several years ago when I was living in an apartment. 
 I painted them up....
And using wood glue and screws I attached one to the bird bath and the others to logs of birch... And we have Giant Mushrooms. Already they have met with the neighbor children's approval. Can you guess what we are doing with this scar yet? More coming next week.....
Be well.
