What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to 35 Fabulous Fountains
This photo has always been one of my favorite outdoor shots on the site. Not just because the fountain has a dragon in a tub, but also because the rosemary, lavender, and olive tree landscaping is one of my absolute favorite combinations.

Amy Renea added this to How to Create an Outdoor Nest
Here is another example of plantings that are the exact right height. They surround this nest without creating a cloistered feel. If the plants were any shorter though, they wouldn't give a feeling of protection. This particular nest is situated on the side of a slight slope or hill which gives an added feel of protection and opens up to a vista below. In the midst of the quivering breezes of rosemary, salvia and lavender, with olive trees hovering in the background, I wish I was the dragon bathing in that fountain!
Samantha Schoech added this to Soak Up Nature With Outdoor Baths
Outstanding in its field! I'd float some of that rosemary in the water for nature's own aromatherapy. Oh, also, there seems to be a dragon in the tub. Hope you don't mind.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Explore Your Garden Personality: The Whimsical Gardener
Display sculpture. The whimsical garden is generally home to a number of unique sculptural pieces. This dragon-in-a-tub fountain is a case in point. The piece is peacefully nestled among rosemary and salvia. The beauty and power of this vignette would be compromised if several other sculptures were competing for attention. Observe the sight lines in your garden and place a sculpture so that the piece speaks on its own without competing with others. Bends in garden paths, hedges and even house corners create new opportunities to appropriately place sculpture.

8. Capture a dragon instead. Bathing in the yard not your cup of tea? Then make way for a dragon, or any other creature sculpture, in a vintage tub to create a statement-making fountain.
