I have been looking for something different for my garden since I don't have any grass. I found this old driftwood and copper fountain and asked if they wanted to sell it and you know I had to have it. I love it ! I think I'll take the fountain off.

I like the fountain, but I'd lose the gravel in the bottom of the copper shells and replace them with a layer or two of blue glass garden stones or some sort of iridescent bead. If the pump is broken, I think new ones can be cheap & quiet (but I admit I haven't priced them lately).

RE: driftwood

I like the fountain too. I'm not sure about the leaves, but the copper flower thingies are kind of neat, and I think I would drill holes in them all and plant little jewel-like plants like baby tears, violets, or cascading sedums in each one.
Good find.

I second sunnie on ditching the fountain. I love the driftwood.
