Welcome to day #2 in David Karst's garden in Colorado. Yesterday, a few people were intrigued by the large rock in the last photo (1st photo today.) Today we take a closer look. David says, "The large water feature in the front yard was completed last year and features a 3-ton rock. The reservoir is underground so I let the fountain run year round which results in a great ice show in the winter. It's also dramatic at night as there are lights under the waterfall. The plantings are still maturing but still put on a good show and have been designed for four season interest." I can't even imagine what king of equipment it took to put that rock in place, David, but it was definitely worth it! Thanks so much for sharing.
