A garden wouldn't be a garden without a waterfeature. Think of all the birds and frogs you are making happy. Even an occaional squirrell. I love the music of the foundtains....

Water snakes are one thing. Water mocassins are whole 'nuther!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

This fountain is on a stand so no snakes, but I did see a small one in my oleander. It was decided it was a "harmless" little garter snake. I still didn't want it in my yard. We mowed around the Greenhouse.
