    kingfisher and fish bird bath
    Lucy’s Smith’s exquisite stoneware Kingfisher Pool stopped me in my tracks.  Look closely and you will see that not only is the watchful kingfisher perched on the rim, lurking in the depths there is a fish.  It’s not often that I covet an object quite as much as this – but with a price that justifiably reflects that it is a work of art rather than a garden ornament, I’d better start saving.
