I thought I'd post a few pictures of my garden and "water feature". I think in the past these were called fountains or bubblers but for some reason they're called water features now. This first one is a close up. My wonderful guys--husband, sons-in-law and son created it for me for Mother's Day. It took a bit of digging and sweating, but they managed to get it going. I arranged the rocks and kept adding a few especially after we went to Colorado and I managed to sneak a few rocks in the trunk. Most of them are from Missouri or from the collection that has been in the garage in boxes for years (remember, I'm married to a geologist). I think the movers really enjoyed moving those boxes over the years. Most of them have been packed since we lived in New Orleans (we left there in 1988!) We've moved 4 times since then. This is what it looks like at night. It's so relaxing to sit on the patio and hear the water bubbling and enjoy the lights.
Here are some of the potted flowers that our friend Marvin saved for us while we were in Missouri the last time. He came over and watered them every day during that 100 plus degree weather that was going on during that time.

The colored "rocks" are actually pieces of glass slag that my brother and sister-in-law gave me. Thanks Rick and Phyllis! They add color that I love.

Very pretty rock garden/water feature! I am a rock lover from way back. I once had my husband pull what he refers to as a boulder out of a mountain in Colorado....he really did strain himself.
