A couple weeks ago...
I shared with you
that I was having a fun project done
in my garden.
Here is that post if you want to read it:-)
(click photos to enlarge)
Here is my Lovely Lady now...
but before we look to close,
I should show you my dirty secret :-)
Here was the starting point.
This has been a dirty mess on the patio
for the last year,
just waiting for this project.
I have been wanting a small reflecting pond on the patio
since we first bought this house.
(there wasn't even a patio then)!
on with the reveal!
First we had the greatest mason
build this little cement pond.
and at that point..
My plan was to stop there
and fill it with plants.
But then, We thought maybe we would add a little water feature...
so shopping we went!
Then I saw this lovely lady!
And since it is our early anniversary present,
we decided to
blow the budget treat ourselves...
I have a great view of her out my family room window,
and love the soft sound of the water splashing.
We placed her right into the pond...
because I love that she is barefoot!
A girl after my own heart:-)
Just for fun...
I set my film speed at sixteen hundred for this photo...
It froze the water drops it the air!
(you can enlarge the photo by clicking it)
and of course...
there have to be flowers!
Our garden centers don't have pond plants in yet,
so I had to "borrow" a few from Mike's pond.
Isn't the reflection in the water pretty?
I am gonna spend a lot of time sitting on the edge
gazing in this summer.
Today I am joining a couple fun parties!
