|Base of fountain while waiting to be repaired|
Part two of this story is my succulents. I've always had an aversion to succulents. However, with this ongoing drought, succulents are everywhere and I got to see how many varieties there are, how beautiful they can be and when they bloom... amazing! So I've been collecting them here and there and putting them in pots. When they get big enough, I separate them and put them in more pots. I was running out of space and they were looking a little hodgepodge. So.... enter the non-functional water fountain!
I pulled out the spray paint and painted the entire thing.
We got it put back together, minus the pump, and I filled both tiers with a layer of stones and then potting soil. I replanted some of my favorite succulents and am excited about seeing my new planter overflow with gorgeous greens and pops of color when it's time for them to bloom. An all around success I'd say!Total cost about $30.00. Not too shabby!!
