This is one of the things that bothered me the most about the front of the house:
See the pile of boulders in the middle of the ring of pavers? Well, its a fountain. Someone drilled holes through the middle of these big boulders and put a pump down underneath, and voila, a fountain. Except that we weren't sure how to winterize it so during our amazingly cold winter, the pump broke. I figured, hey, since we have to pull those giant boulders out to get to the pump anyway, why not just leave them out and put a pretty fountain in instead?
Here's the beauty that I've had my eye on for years. (Restoration Hardware sells it, but I found it at a local garden specialist for less.) It was too big for my last house (anybody seen Analyze This?) but I love it in its new home!
I love that it's low enough for Tess to drink out of.
