Water Feature

This little water feature can be found on the side of the hill at the upper gardens on Whimsy.

It began one day about six years ago when Sweetie threw up some hollow blocks. I added moving water and sound, creating a small stream that gurgles down the hill for 12 meters or so before disappearing into the ground.

We had been looking for a place for a hand-washing animation we had picked up at Bits N Bobs, so I made a bamboo pipe with a stream of water issuing from it and positioned the animation appropriately.

For years a galvanized zinc bucket sat beside the spring. Yesterday, at Sweetie's behest, I replaced it with a wooden bucket of my own construction.

Wouldn't you know it, a family of birds immediately moved in!
