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!
