Here was my beautiful birdbath-fountain my husband painted black for me to have a " Charleston-style ' look to it. This was in April, see the little dab of bubbles ?
They got worse. Look below...
Here was the next morning about 6:30 AM ( I have a previous post about this in April ) Kind of looks like the bubble-blob. Was funny for a few days, then NOT funny after a week and a half. Nothing worked, so I decided to move another fountain here, and relegate this one to the back under my Carolina Jessamine.
Then I had the bright idea of putting my seashells in it. Look below...
As you can concur, and I know you do out there in cyberland, this was a definite YUCH.
Too bright. So...I went to Lowes, spent too much on assorted non-essential flowers and a sprinkler, and also fixed my problem.
I planted some peach lantana and some marigolds ( I do not like marigolds very much, but I have a serious mosquito problem, and they don't like marigolds ). Anything that mosquitoes don't like is a friend or flower of mine.
These will look better in a week or so. Very sunny spot back here.
Some bush roses and salvia also back here.
I have to go plant my unnecessary flowers I bought ( I have been reading Flower Lady's frugal post ), and clean my house , which is never as much fun, if any fun at all as gardening.
So far, mission accomplished with the wayward black fountain.
I hope you have a great day, I hope you get to that one or more annoying things that bug you in your garden, and fix them,
