TIME: 8:03 PM
PLACE: Front porch
SUBJECT: Lion’s head fountain
Yesterday I bought myself some miniature cattails to put in my water fountain. Tonight, after cleaning out the tubing that directs the water through the lion’s mouth (I had a rather large blockage of dirt), I finally set up the new pump that I purchased a couple of months ago. Now the soothing sounds of splashing water fill my front porch.
