Jubilee Bowl


Went to the garden centre this morning, just for a coffee, and came away with this huge water feature! I've christened it the Jubilee Bowl in honour of Our Majesty! I just casually inquired about the price as there were no others in the shop, and the assistant returned with another chap who switched off the water feature ready to start clearing the bowl out! But what the heck, the price was good so I told him to carry on. Decided not to have the fountain feature with it, as I like the idea of a calm reflective pool. And I already had some hostas and ferns ready to group around it, plus a plant that I bought for the main pond but decided I didn't want to muck up the water. All it needs now is a few more pebbles around it and it's done. Not bad for about twenty minutes work - that has to be the easiest new feature I've ever installed!

  2. Well Martin, they may have been a bit presumptuous at the garden centre, but how good does that look.
