It adds something special to the garden and allows frogs and toads to frolic or birds to bath or drink. I also have two large concrete dishes for bird baths in the garden in addition to the running water but have noticed that the large birds enjoy these features instead.
We finally arranged the fountain area near the house. Back in 2011, I showed you how we had to clean this area washing all the stones. We found the pump from the fountain had been cut through with a garden clipper by the previous owners. We bought a new pump and rearranged the stones as we have a pump with various functions one of which is this ball shape. The water sounds so pretty when you have this running. I can even hear it indoors now as I sit chatting with you.
