The stone path leading to the water faucet in the front of the building is more decorative than functional. The path was laid like this to demand that the area in front of the beautiful window arch and flower box shelf was not to be planted -- obscuring the view of this attractive part of the house.
The flower pot expelling a stream of assorted rocks is used frequently in my work. Many people think I was inspried by the Japanese gardeners to give the impression of water pouring from a bucket. Actually, it is the inspiration I garnered from my former Farmers' Market days. The growers would tip the bushel baskets of small red potatoes on their sides to attractively exhibit them as they poured out.
