A pond to think by

During the hazy, hot months of the summer season, there's something so calming & soothing about the sound of running water. Whether it's the sound from a sprinkler, fountain, waterfall, or the roaring of ocean waves, the sound of water instantly refreshes.  

We have a birdbath fountain just outside our front door that the birds love to splash in.  The added benefit of the fountain is that it helps to keep the water somewhat purified and fresh. 

We also have a little garden pond that we put in several years ago with a fountain that I just love. For families of little ones {like me} I always caution about ponds or standing water that could prove to be a danger.  Even a few inches of water can be enough to drown a little one. 

But if you have the room, think about putting in a pond or fountain, so you, too, can enjoy the sight and sound of trickling water all season long :)
