Plants were not the only ones who felt the freeze...

Here is another casualty of last week's prolonged and bitterly cold weather.

This beautiful Mexican Talavera bird bath couldn't handle the thaw with two inches of ice sitting in it. (At least it wasn't the pipes in my house, I am thankful for that.)

Last year, I brought it in the garage to protect it from the hard freeze.

Sadly, I just didn't think to do it this year.

I was contemplating super glue...but that won't work.

I bought this a few years ago at our local HEB grocery store. They sometimes get special orders of pottery or garden furniture in the summer time and I grabbed this up the second I saw it.

Maybe I'll run across another one somewhere -- I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
