I came home yesterday, from a trip for the day to Charleston to take more pictures for this blog...and what I had waiting at home for me was a mystery.
My husband had sealed and repainted a cracked birdbath/fountain that we had...he had painted it black like I want for my ' Charleston ' look.
On closer inspection , I detect the presence of bubbles, lots of bubbles.
My husband said something must be in the paint, it will go away by in the morning.
So, I wake up, look outside and see about 6:40 AM,
It was very dark, but shining like a bright ' Hello ", was my bubbling birdbath.
Look at all the bubbles !!! Lots of additional bubbling went on through the night.
I got my husband up later, told him ' Houston , we have a problem." Like the astronauts do to the space station, he comes down the stairs and sees this...
We both just stare out and laugh, but I did tell him I am worried about my birds, and also about Maxine who thinks this is her drinking watering hole.
Our little boy looks out the big window too , and goes,
" Well, at least the birds will have their privacy when they take a bath. "
That made my day.
My husband called a lab at his office and asked what made this bubble ? They tell him it is the surfactant in the paint, and quite possibly will stop in a few days when it works out of the paint, and also it may not work for a birdbath ( duh ), as it is not meant to be under water.
I was still pleased he had painted it for me and lifted the 100 + lb. basin off of there and up there by himself...very romantic.
But I did fuss at him to not hurt himself,
He ignored me as usual.
I guess I will now have to go get the birds a little shower curtain for privacy once the bubbles dissipate.
Have a wonderful , warm day,
P.S. I have more pictures from my trip to Charleston to show in a few entries coming up.
