|Giant teacup planters from Baum, found on Amazon.com.|
When I was searching online for a photo of the giant teapot (which I couldn't find) I came across this ingenious garden decoration you see to the left. It's called a Rain Chain. The idea is, when it rains, the water will pour through the opening in the top of the teapot, weave in and out down through the chains and into each teacup, like a decorative water fountain, only powered by a rainstorm. I immediately fell in love with it, (which should be no surprise, given the name of my blog,) however, I don't have a spare hundred dollars lying around. And it doesn't hardly ever rain here, so the poor thing would go unused.
So, my dreams of a flower garden will remain in my head and I will be content with my cactus. What about you, Gentle Readers? What's your favorite thing about your yard or garden? Leave me a comment and let me know.
