New water feature

I got a better picture of the water feature I made for the patio area.It is so nice to listen to while we sit in the screen porch.All things I had and really needed to do something with them. We are working on downsizing things. If it does not have a use it needs to live somewhere else.I was going to make a shelf out of the door in the back garden area but it worked out here. My little Japanese maple got hit by the frost but is recovering nicely after a bit of trimming.

Yesterday I had a very nice surprise from our good friends Larry and Mikki .Larry made me a birthday present.I love hand crafted gifts and get very few.This one we will use often while camping.

While I was out I took a few more pictures of flowers in the yard.The Hallie Anna vine is just starting to bloom.I wish you all could smell how wonderful it is .It is also under the screen porch windows.Double enjoyment. the sound of running water and the scent of the blooming flowers.

 The clematis is blooming. Also the bleeding heart and strawberries.

Mr.T Brought me some rocks from the farm to add to our front water feature. 

If you are ever in our area stop and sit a spell.
Have a great weekend.j
I will link tomorrow to

I like you new water feature. I want to make one in my garden and hope to get it done this year. I have something small but just doesn't get the sound of water that I want. Lovely blog!!
