A Garden Project

I have a garden project that I would like to share with you. Let me show you the finished results first. Because I can't wait! And then I will tell you what I did.  The Rebecca At The Well Fountain is in service again and creating the nicest sounds in my garden!


I have had this fountain outside my dining room window for several years. It is a lovely three piece structure. The beautiful base is now covered by azaleas that were only one gallon plants when I planted them. Because we have had colder weather and  snow in the winter for the last few years the cement basin deteriorated and crumbled because I did not cover it with plastic protection some of the years. Seriously, I really missed hearing the sounds of the flowing water during the warm summer days. So, I decided that I was going to do something about it. The next photo was taken in spring time and it is a photo of the fountain amidst the flowering azaleas and without a basin! So - - -

 



I bought a very large plastic terracotta basin . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


And, a couple cans of Krylon Stone spray paint . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .





 And, then a can of Krylon Sealer . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
  



And, now Rebecca is getting water from the well. And, I Love It.


Happy Summer Days to you.
