On Pinterest the other night I came across a bee water station.
I thought this was a wonderful idea since bees pollinate thousands of flowers and gardens a day. Bees can easily drown so to bring more bees to my garden I set out to make my own.
I picked up 2 bags of round marbles from the Dollar tree. They also had flat marbles. Get what you prefer and whatever colors you want to use. I used the mixed colors so I would bring some more colors to my garden and because I thought when the sun hit the marbles it would look awesome.
I had an old glass pie dish that I actually had in my yard sale tote so I pulled it out and used it for this. I emptied the marbles into the pie dish and then added some water.
I placed a empty container upside down and set the dish on top.
Here's a closer look.
Here's the bee water station in the garden. (bottom left) I hope this brings more bees to my garden. :)
I spent $2 on this project and that was for the marbles. I had the container, pie dish and water. :) My husband saw this and gave me a look and said "uh" and I said "its for the bees to drink from". He just said "ok" and looks at me like I was crazy. LOL
