It's just a plastic planter, large and small stones, and a cute little potted plant from Joann's. I thought the little flower would sink, but it floated. I like that even more. The bubbling water makes it slowly move around. Both the sound and movement are quite relaxing.
With the Adirondack chairs, little side tables, citronella candles, Kindle reader, and a cup of green tea, the little gurgling fountain makes my front porch just about perfect. Number of people who sit on their front porches in my neighborhood: one--me. We've got lots of nicely decorated porches, but I never see anyone on them. Is it just my little suburban area???
