My Stone Fountain

At long last we have our lovely stone fountain working again. When we moved into the house it was looking very sad. It was full of soil and weeds and the pump was on the floor beside it. It was also in the middle of a very overgrown garden and so you couldn’t really see it.

We dug the soil out and it turns out that the bottom level has a wonderful aqua colour to it which makes the water sparkle blue.

It looks a little bare now that the plants are all gone. But pretty soon, once we start planting again it will be back to its former glory and take pride of place in the middle of the kitchen garden. And even though the summer feels like a long way away I bet we’ll be thankful for the tinkling water sound when the sun is beating down. I’m so happy to see it working again and restored to its former glory. It feels like the right thing in the right place in the right garden again.

Here’s a shot of how it looked when we first moved here.

    How beautiful your restored fountain looks – well done! It looks like something out of a stately home. You would have to pay a small fortune for something like that now! Looking forward to seeing the kitchen garden around the fountain next year. Hope you, your husband and the boys (and lovely dog) have a great Christmas in your new house. xxx

    What a beautiful fountain! And how amazing that you can use it again and bring new life to the garden with it. I love the paving that has appeared too – it looks like yours is going to be a truly beautiful garden :-)
    Merry Christmas to you!

    Wowee I would’ve bought the fountain and seen what sort of house and garden came with it!!! That is a thing of beauty and no mistake. Lovely.

    What I’m looking forward to is sitting in the garden with the sound of tinkling water in the background. This is the first ‘water feature’ I’ve ever had!
