Saint Francis of Assisi

Susan's Birdbath and Feeder

sue-bird.jpg (81690 bytes)


This had been another "Sue Inna Box" sculpture with poor Susan  crammed inside of a box once again.  I decided to "free" Sue from her captivity this summer and I used this sculpture to create this unique birdbath and feeder, a female St. Francis. The faux patina finish works well against the English Ivy growing on a small wall in front of my house and the azelas are just starting to bloom. The birdbath sits in a larger disc surrounded by a ring of wild flowers.

Interesting side note - the English Ivy on the wall started as a small piece cut  from the walkway at Washington's  home in Mount Vernon, Virginia.

Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace;
that where there is hatred, I may bring love;
that where there is wrong, I may bring forgiveness;
that where there is discord, I may bring harmony;
that where there is doubt, I may bring faith;
that where there is despair, I may bring hope;
that where there are shadows, I may bring light;
that where there is sadness, I may bring joy.
