So what type of water feature did Gav build??

Well the week is flying by and I'm trying to stay with it and not fall behind!
I really don't know where the time goes do you?
I have been wanting to share this with you since the weekend but just haven't gotten round to it.
So do you remember when I was slightly worried here that Gav might incorporate a toilet as a  planter or water feature in our newly cleared front garden??
Well I got home from Mum & Dads and there were signs of water feature in progress, dotted around the house, big bucket, pump etc. But thankfully no toilet in sight.
On Saturday off I went to the CS for my normal shift, Gav was going to relax for the afternoon and watch football!!
So how surprised was I when I pulled into the drive to find this out side my front door.

Well it was a lovely surprise, looking pretty and tasteful waiting for me to do some planting.
It makes a lovely bubbling sound, which is great during the day but I am having to ask that it gets turned off at night as it is outside below our bed room window and I have found it makes me need the toilet all night if left on, lol.
Sorry probably a bit to much information.
So new water feature in, now to tackle the rest of the front garden and make it look presentable to the rest of the street.
2 days till the weekend yippeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

I love it, it's beautiful. He is a clever bloke. I think most people turn them off at night anyway don't they? maybe that's why!

Gosh, what a lovely thoughtful Hubby you have.
Looks really good too, if my Hubby had to think of something to do in our garden, I would have returned to the loo idea.x

You are a very lucky girl to have Gav and vice-versa!
Tell him, that he`s done a wonderful job with the water feature!

Hi Sophie,

I am dead kealous of your water feature! I would really like one :-) The closest I get at the moment is the little plastic bird drinking bowl that attaches to my bird feeder! lol

my front garden is a tip... Most of it is paved (as a driveway) but there are just tonnes of straggly old scrubby shrubs at the moment, even my hanging basket died! Really need to get out there and do it... Hmmm maybe Gav could come and do it when he's finished yours? lol

Have a fab weekend :-)

Looks fabulous Sophie! Thank goodness it isn't a toilet feature in your front garden.... even if it made the toilet a feature of your night's sleep!
