Julia at Hooked on Houses is hosting her Hooked on Friday event. Visit her blog and see what everyone is hooked on right now.
I have been hooked on water features for a long time but we have yet to install one. Each year Cincinnati's Home and Garden show has many creative and gorgeous examples that I would love to see in my own yard.But...aside from the prohibitive expense of many of them, do I really want to invest in the extra time and effort to care for a pond?
I am thinking a pondless waterfall would be more realistic.
This little covered bridge with a fountain and pond is adorable. Wouldn't it be fun to sit inside the bridge reading a book on a rainy day?
Just over the top cute!
Still water is so pretty. This "floating" bridge is awesome too, very peaceful.
My favorite though, is always the natural looking stream with a small waterfall. A woodland setting makes me feel that maybe a fairy or two are just around the next bend.
This diminutive bridge over a small rushing stream is my idea of heavenly.
With a pondless catch basin at the end to cut down on maintenance. Now that is my kind of water feature.
Just imagine the trickling water, lit from below on a summer evening,
flowing to the glistening stones below.
Isn't this charming?
However, a fountain may be a bit more realistic right now. What are you hooked on?
Have a fantastic Friday, P.
