Outdoor Wednesday is on again over at The Southern Daydreamer. Thanks to Susan for hosting again. Looks like baseball is in full swing over there. Stop in and visit all the participants.
I am showing my little water feature for outdoor Wednesday. I had the old galvanized laundry tub and a couple of the galvanized watering cans. Bingo. Make a water feature.
I brought it up at coffee group one morning and the guys were very helpful with advice on how to get the can sitting on an angle and how to get the water through the spout.
I was told to weld it to some rebar which would have a foot piece welded on the bottom to place under the tub to hold it upright....I know...me too.
I was told to drill a hole for the tubing and to fill the bottom of the watering can with concrete on an angle to stabilize the can...uh no thanks.
I was told to weave the tubing inside of the handle through a hole and then loop it around to the front and out through the spout but they didn't know how I would hold it in place...ya..okay.
Well here it is. My own version. No welding, drilling or cement involved.
What did I do? I took a galvanized flower bucket. Tilted the can on top of it. Put in a couple rocks to hold it steady. I stuck the hose through the spout just by going over the top and into the opening. Yes you can see the clear tubing but you know what...I don't care. It sounds lovely and you really don't notice it while sitting there.
