Want to know what to do with an old fountain
past its prime.
Make a succulent garden.
All you do is add some plants and a little art.
I added some extra holes even though it already leaked.
Of course we have to have some hens and chicks.
I don't know what the name of this is but it will come back every year.
It gets tiny little pink flowers on it.
Plus the leaves turn pink in the fall.
A few more succulents.
And of course you have to add some old cement birds.
You can tell these have been around for a long time.
They seem to like it there.
They are my shabby chic birds.
And ta-da. Here it is.
It wintered over last year and did great.
I don't have to water it or do any kind of maintenance
other than pull the occasional weed.
And there you have it. A great way to repurpose
an old leaky fountain.
This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
