A wonderful addition to your garden this year could be a solar fountain. By simply placing one in a large bowl, or bird bath, it works by the power of the sun instantly. No battery is required and it is eco friendly and makes a satisfying gentle sound plus giving garden birds a refreshing drink.
They can be bought on Amazon, Ebay and other online retailers.
Here’s mine recently added to an old vintage bowl. I think they look simply beautiful and work almost straight away as soon as the sun shines on it. Tag us on instagram @thevioletcottageuk with your photos.
