I like to reuse things as much as possible, so I took an old post from an old wooden palette, sanded it and gave it a cedar stain. I left some of the darker marks on it so that it would maintain that rustic look. Then I fastened a copper birdbath that we had and put it into the ground. Around it I planted some Irises for spring, a butterfly bush behind it and two coneflowers, one on each side. Its a perfect setting for the birds and butterflies. This is another picture from September.
