Yesterday I went to an herb sale at our local farmer's market. But that was NOTHING compared to the beauty of the places you got to see. I really liked that wine bottle fountain, and I hope to someday have a way to make a reclaimed pot fountain. Of course, that means I will have to get electricity to the front of my house (grin). You took some awesome photos.
