We love to sit on our porch and listen to the water. During the summer, we have several different types of birds that visit and it is so cute to watch them "bathe" in the fountain.

Update 5/8/15: This fountain has been going strong for just shy of 2 years. We did end up replacing the pump last fall (we had gone on a 2 week vacation in August and forgot to turn it off-and the motor went out.) We replaced it with a slightly stronger pump and have even better bubbling action.
