Love the water feature! Could you tell me what it's called and where I might find one? - I'm making a whimsical children's garden in my backyard, and this would be such a fun addition. Thanks in advance for your reply.

This is a sprinkler. It is made to go on the end of a hose but we "hard-piped" it and put it on an automatic sprinkler valve. The kids run around in it too --- if you time it right, you can run around it and stay dry or you can run around it and get soaking wet. I used to buy these from an artist in Illinois --- but he's gone out of business. There are some knock-off's available --- look up "decorative copper sprinkler" in a search of the web and you'll see lots of options. Happy gardening!

Strong structure for strong interest. This parterre-inspired veggie garden, with its strong architectural lines, is attractive year-round. Add the playful sprinkler — which looks like an armillary sphere when not in operation — and you have a vegetable garden that's fetching enough for center stage.

Parterre-inspired veggie garden--I love these geometric pathways that weave through and create the garden planting areas! It's easy to get at every plant too. The only improvement would be raised beds (more back friendly), but then this garden wouldn't be a parterre-inspired.
