DIY Leaf Birdbath

The garden also gives Holly's mother a way to pass on her vast, mostly self-taught knowledge of gardening to others. Holly says, "Countless times during her visits, I hear her out in the garden answering questions from people passing by the garden on their way to the neighboring park. Some even seek her out now that they recognize her car."

Shown: A frequent visitor, Sandy made the concrete birdbath using a giant rhubarb leaf as a mold, then painted it; the trunk of a fallen aspen tree serves as its stand.
