My Little European Fountain

One of the things I love about walking through cities in Europe is all of the fountains you find in out of the way places.   Last fall at an end of the season nursery sale I found a perfect little fountain for our little backyard.  I bought this baby for a steal, and although my husband rolled his eyes while making the purchase we took it home and stuck it in the...garage.  (Yep, stone can't always handle the cold New York winters.)  A couple of weeks ago we brought the fountain out, filled it with water, and plugged it in.  Voila!  We now have a very soothing tinkling (I am at loss for a better word) sound in our backyard and when I close my eyes I can pretend I'm in Europe!

ooo.. fountains are very popular in asian homes too... in malaysia lots of Chinese love to put tiny ponds with fountains in their garden. i find them soothing ... but quite tough to maintain the cleanliness (i'm lazy!) hehe...

I LOVE the fountain! I would love to put one in my yard but not only can I find an affordable one, I am afraid that it would make me have to go to the bathroom more often;)

Can I have custody of your in the winter??? LOL

I love it!

Pixie, I told you this months ago, I have to say it again: I think you should consider exhibiting several of your pictures, frame them and make them available for others... (like me)
