Show and Tell

Many of you have seen this fountain I have had in a small garden for several years now. I wrote a post about it being published in the Birds and Blooms magazine here. The large pot was in pretty bad shape so I decided to try something new this year. I still used some pieces from my enamelware collection but this one is a simpler build.

The basic construction is the same. The small pot is on a rock to tilt it and the cup is sitting on an enamel plate. You can see the post on construction here.

It adds a fun piece to the garden and gives the critters some water to drink on a hot day.

Thanks for stopping by for Show and Tell. You can see more Show and Tell posts by going to Kelli's House.

Oh I love that! Does the water circulate? or does it keep that section of the garden watered for you?
