    These are inspirational. I love my little drop of water in the garden. It works it’s magic from time to time.

    Lisa – None of these waterworks are in my garden. I love garden tours, and dreaming of what I might be able to do. I just have a bird bath.

    Water gardens stand out and give a peaceful look. Add perennials around them for a stand out look.
