the fountain story....

on a drive past the goodwill store.......i spotted this fountain.......................dare i even pull in to check it out........talked myself out of it.............................turned around......went back................walked quickly to check the tag.......$15 !!!........oh my could it really be.......(doesn't work!).............................well for $15 ....i thought i can live with that just as a feature in the yard.............................purchase made.....................................................stopped by a greenhouse to see about a new pump......................................the lady took it to the restroom, worked on it a bit, cleaned the lime deposits................................................it worked..............................wow....$15
that was two years ago...................................and we did have to find a new pump eventually......but i have so loved and enjoyed my best bargain ...................ever ! ....................................................................................................i am blessed !

Oh...lucky you! Love it! I sorta had just the opposite experience...my husband bought me a fountain one year for our anniversary...It stopped working and I asked him to move it to the edge of our yard for a planter b/c I still loved it...This spring, driving past our neighbors', I saw it in their front yard....working just fine... :o((( Just another reason this crow is cranky...

I just love finds like that. It's really beautiful...nothing like the sound of a water fountain in the garden...so peaceful.
