Always try to grow in your garden some plant or plants out of the ordinary, something your neighbors never attempted. For you can receive no greater flattery than to have a gardener of equal intelligence stand before your plant and ask "what is that?" --Richardson Wright

Bird Baths

If your bird bath has grown an algae scum, a good way to clean it is to use a mixture of equal parts white vinegar and water. Let it sit for about 30 minutes, then rinse it out.

Another suggestion is to pick 6 stems of lavender, wrap them with an elastic band, then float the bundle in the water.  It's worth a try!
