Bees Drinking Trough

facebook EUV Stadtbetrieb Castrop-Rauxel Bees Drinking Trough

If it gets too hot you can offer a bees drinking trough to bees and other insects – and you can simply use the caps of plastic bottles :)
Important: fill the plastic bottle caps only with water, not with sugar or honey water!

Thanks, Brigitte, for the tip!

Recycled Jewelry Wall Cross

I find the recycled jewelry wall cross a wonderful example for mixed media assemblage, the assembly of different things to a new artwork :)
