My Mother's Day Gift


The MOTH decided we needed another fountain beside the waterfall area. This is a little late to be posted but it was the Saturday before Mother's Day. We bought it and he installed it the same day.








It didn't all go like clockwork, but actually took several hours and it was HOT.











Three...two ...one... The moment of truth -- plugging it in -- and it worked!















It will be even more wonderful when I get the ivy growing around the base and after we have strategically placed a few pieces of rose quartz around it, which we had given to us years ago.













This beautiful picture was taken at the nursery next door to where we bought the fountain. The painting in the gazebo was a unique idea, I thought. It really looked like a window overlooking the ocean. We also bought a cactus -- or succulent, from here -- the pretty light green plant below the palm trees. You can see ours in the pot beside the fountain in the picture above.

Nice set of photos and I laughed at the last few lines especially, "it works."

I love your new fountain --bamboo style. My daughter would love it as our patio has a sort-of bamboo theme. I'll take some photos when we finally get some sunshine.

Congrats to the MOTH on his work well done! We could use a MOTH around here!

I think all garden spots need a water feature...love bird baths and fountains. What a nice mothers day gift. I also liked the pictures of your back yard, great idea for a rose bed. BE BLESSED :-)

I'm envious, I've wanted one of those water features for years, just never got around to wanting it enough I suppose.
