The Fountain is Finished!!

Ten years ago Paul bought me this beautiful fountain. We used it as a statue and had it in the side yard for the past nine years. Last June we decided to try it out as a fountain and when we did we were amazed at how beautiful it looked. It really came to life. So we decided to move it to a spot where everyone could enjoy it. When we found the perfect spot we realized the ground needed a "little" leveling. Our weekend project turned into a year long endeavor! But the results speak for themselves and we are thrilled! Thank you to all the guests who put up with our "sandbox" over the fall and winter and for all the plant suggestions. The grass is now up and we planted 28 double knockout roses along with a great variety of other plants on either side of the stone wall. Come back and enjoy the new view!

We just returned from a wonderful trip to Alaska to discover a phenomenal event occurring in our yard. Over 100 foxgloves are growing where none were ever planted! These "volunteers" are bringing us so much joy.
