I know what you mean about that wnderful sound. I have a cousin that built a house right by a 'real' waterfall!
Good grief - that's errr, certainly on the Hummer side of backyard water features! It’s Sculpture By The Sea time in Sydney, and I’m taking my visitors on the coastal walk. Today we’re in Wonderland. Sydney Daily Photo
I'd take it, but then we have enough rain here anyway.
I love the sounds of water fountains and waterfalls...so very peaceful and relaxing. I thought about buying one of those mini-waterfalls to keep on a desk at home...but so far haven't done so. One I looked at you had to clap your hands to activate every so often. Now the water fountain you've posted....now that's a water fountain that anyone would want!
Like Sally, I was thinking "over the top" too. Maybe if you had a really big backyard.
Oooo that would be great in the garden! But, like you say, a bit on the large side and probably expensive to run.
Sigh. I've always wanted a fountain too, but it's just not practical — such a waste of power and water (it'll evaporate fast in our heat and will need replenishment often). I can't even bring myself to get a tiny desktop version because it still requires electricity.
Thanks for stopping by!
