And last of all, at the front of the property is the "waterfall" that Jim created a few years ago, recycling the water in the shallow pond that he spent so much hard labour cleaning up this spring. You can't see it on this photo, but there is a trickle of water falling down the rock pile at the center.
Birds love these features. They bath in the fountain, and take a refreshing shower under the waterfall.
In the evening, we unplug the water pump in the barrel, and turn a switch on the panel in the garage that controls the power to both the fountain and waterfall.
So nice of Jim to have incorporated these features into our landscape, a landscape that had no trees, no shrubs, no perennials, no annuals when we first lived here. What a fantastic amount of work he has done to create this little paradise. I think an appropriate name for our place would be "NewEden." Without the serpent!
