Water Feature

There's a little human-made pond in our back yard (right next to what seems like a very ill-placed fire pit).  Michelle dragged a pump out of the pond earlier this spring and has been doing some work to clean it up.  

Now the surprise peonies appeared right near the pond, so I've been paying some attention to the pond of late.  Tonight, when I came home, I checked immediately to see if the peony had bloomed.  [No, by the way.]  But, what I did discover is that today, Michelle got the pump hooked back up and now, our pond has a bit of a fountain.  Wow!  I've been very excited all evening about the working water feature.  Several times, I had to go hang out at the back door, just to watch the water.

Sounds like you folks are settling in and making your house "yours". With the fountain runing, maybe the fireplace will be more useful. Water, fire...nice mix.

So where is the photo of the fountain? Does it breed mozzies?

Nice sound to the fountain? I think my favorite sound in the world is moving water: be it fountain, falls, or stream.
