A friend lent us a calendar of some safareiges that had been renovated and turned into fountains. I took photos of them to remember some of the ideas, and I thought I might share.....
See all those ones with the mossy rock things...those are quite traditional, and our house did had one. Indeed the rocks are still there. We are probably not going to keep that, I am not sure I want to pay for water to be running down that day and night forever. A little extravagant in a land that is so dry. Maybe that is the point though.
A little more for those of you who have made it this far. We sort of have a garden with this house too. There is a walled garden in front that USED to belong to the house officially, but hasn't since the civil war, as well, the lady who lived there before us used it all the time.
I am keeping up with the tradition. I may add that I have never before been in a garden entirely planted with spiky thorny grasping nasty plants.
Holly trees...(who knew THAT existed) and rose bushes and I don't know what all else but one of them is a nasty spreading ugly thing that has thorns on the tip of every leaf and there are lots of them.
All massively overgrown after three years or more without being tended. Got some work ahead of me and some garden planning!
