    I had this realy ugly garden in the corner of my back yard. There was a wall made of concrete blocks and was overgrown with weeds.

    Always wanted a water feature so I spent last winter weekends rebuilding the wall and facing it with limestone then built a fountain from Mexican pottery.

    My wife decorated with purple and pink fountain grass...low maintenance, low water consumption and "fountain grass" seemed a natural for a fountain.

    Anyway, the fountain rock garden has finally matured and I like the way it turned out.

    If you want to take a look, go here :

    Well, to finish the work, you need to fill it with whiskey, and have a hot babe sit it front of it with a deck of cards. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    OK so tell me before I look at this fountain -

    a) is it white and made of porcelin?
    b) is it an object that is normally bolted to the wall or to the floor?
    c) if it is both of the above, is the lid up, or down?

    Now Doc, now don't get p!ssed off at me, I wasn't sayin' you were fulla s**t. The pic page didn't open right away for me and when I saw Y's post I thought it was more typical Doc humor [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] and I always seem to p!ss myself laughing.

    The fountain and the garden are both beautiful. I like the accents on the fence as well.

    Eaglefire,

    How was your trip around the solar system? Mars Venus Uranus then Pluto...must have been a one of those economy cruises to be back so soon.

    Regarding, doing work at your house, You'll have to neotiate with my wife.

    Inside joke but Dave will get it.
