There’s not a gardener or homesteader – that I know of – that doesn’t want to attract birds, butterflies, and beneficial insects to his or her garden or backyard. What most people think of when they want to attract these creatures is planting attractive flowers, building bird houses, and putting up bird feeders. All of those are great ideas – and needed – if you want birds, butterflies, and beneficial insects. However, many people don’t think about one other necessity: water. Birdbaths in the garden!
