I cleared an area by our shed that is fairly level, shaded part of the day, yet has enough sun to grow honeybee-friendly plants and provide power to solar lights. I rescued some wicker furniture someone from a curbside and have repaired and painted the settee and table. Then, I found a perfect chair at Goodwill to match! Now, I just have to find the perfect cushions.
While searching for fountains, I saw a store that sells Howard Miller Grandfather Clocks. I thought to myself, what is this doing in the search engine results?" When I clicked through, I saw a Fountain Water Clock. It is gorgeous!
I never thought of myself as a grandfather clock type of person, but I read an article about how to Choose a Clock That Reflects Your Personality on their blog.
This clock definitely fits my personality and it is not your grandfather's clock. I love the natural slate and aged copper tower over which water cascades. The clock face is very simple, with Roman numerals at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o'clock, unadorned bar hour markers and copper-finished hands. The pendulum is of aged copper as well.
There is a light in the base and an electric submersible pump that I would replace or convert to solar power, but that is no problem as I have learned how to do this while researching water features. Everything is coming together for my Earth room. Now I just have to convince my husband to build it!
