Fountain Time


Sometimes home projects you think you are going to love turn out not-so-good.

Others turn out right on-the-money.

I have always wanted a fountain in the backyard and two years ago, hubs made my dream come true.

There have been previous posts about this lovely fountain. Here's one of them:

Well, now that warmer weather is here, it's fountain time.

The protective winter covers came off the fountain and it's bubbling and trickling once again!

Perusing pinterest, (joy of all joys) , I read that if you put small pieces of copper piping in the water, it won't get mucky with algae and other unmentionables.

So that's what we did. Put a piece in the birdie bath, too.

How I love  to listen to the gurgling of this fountain.

Even when I'm in the kitchen, I can hear it and it's sooooo pleasant.

Now what would I ever do without that guy? He's a keeper.

DO YOU HAVE A FOUNTAIN?

Your fountain is beautiful, Susan. I wish I could visit it and share your yard! I have a special weakness for fountains. Someday...maybe....

No fountain here, though I would love to have one. I don't know about the upkeep, though. Your husband does sound like a keeper!

Happy HUgs-

No fountain in my yard but I do love to hear the gentle pitter patter of raindrops in the summer which are so rare in So. Cal.

Gurgling water does the trick for me, too. Hope your summer is wonderful. I am glad to have my computer back.

Hello from Spain: I do not I have a fountain in my garden because I had to do works and I did not want to have home workers. You know that always works in the end cost more than expected. Anyway, in the future I'm sure I'll have a fountain. I really like yours. The sound of water is always relaxing. Keep in touch

Your hubs was a sweetie, I always wanted one too for our previous house, and somehow never acquired one. Yours is lovely and they look so regal in a yard! Thank you for your sweet visit.

I can't imagine a more attractive fountain, Susan! I WOULD like to have one, but when I factor in the maintenance, wiring, etc. I've just never taken the plunge. Sure do enjoy other peoples' though :)

I would love to have a fountain as pretty as yours. Your husband did a nice job with it. I bet he enjoys it right along with you :)
