Of all the house projects completed over the past few years, installation of a backyard fountain was an all time favorite.
Many times during the warmer months in New England, I'd pull out the lounge chair and sit near it, listening peacefully to the gurgling water.
It is amazing how soothing a fountain can be.
My granddaughter loves turning her back to the fountain, making wishes and throwing coins over her shoulder.
(The little doll baby learned that from her Grammie. ha ha.)
In just a few short weeks, hubs will wrap up the fountain for the winter.
It will look like a big, monstrous creature, encased in black plastic and the carefree days of spring, summer and autumn will be part of the past.
If you ever have the opportunity to add a fountain to your backyard, do it.
You will never, ever regret it.
If interested in seeing the original installation of the brick semi-circle beneath the fountain, go here.
Now, let's hum a verse or two of "Three Coins in a Fountain," just for old times' sake.
WHERE WAS THE PRETTIEST FOUNTAIN YOU'VE EVER SEEN?
