the creation of the
fountain in 2004, we wanted to add a little "visual
music" to the area. It all started with the need to
attempt to disguise the electrical cord for the fountain
pump -- we really didn't want to hide it, just have
something a little more visually interested to look at.
Mounting a copper tray from a garage sale chaffing dish to
an old cedar limb, we made a little sign post standing above
the fountain. Four fiddle heads made of flexible
copper tubing are growing out of the tray -- mimicking the
fiddleheads of the ferns.
addition, we made a number of small copper fiddle heads to
be placed in the area around the fountain -- giving the
feeling of copper ferns sprouting up around the entire area.
