Fountain improvements

I got this fountain birdbath about two years ago.

I really like it.  But it was hard to get at the pump to clean it and even harder to put back together.  It has this concrete cover with a pipe through it that had to be fitted to a hose connected to the pump.  And then the hose had to be crammed into the space under the cover.

This year I removed the concrete cover.  I used stones and a screen instead.  It works well, is easy to clean and I like how it looks, too.  It was a very satisfying little project and my inner kid likes to play with the rocks and clean the fountain.

 Here the screen is in place over stones
