Backyard Autumn in New Jersey: Home Renovation

The statue for my bird bath is finally back in place. I tested the solar-powered water pump, but had to drain everything because of a hard freeze (16 °F/-9 °C) predicted for tonight. I don’t know if I will be able to use the bird bath again until next spring?
