[gardeners] Forgot about the other fountain

I forgot to describe the other fountain I setup.

Originally, like I said, I was just going to have the one barrel so I had
purchased a small fountain pump.  Since I changed my idea I need to do
something with this little fountain.  One of the nurseries I visited in my
search for ideas had spiderwort growing in shallow water (not over its
crown).  Since I had a Hawaiian Punch (purple) spiderwort and hadn't decided
what to do with it I though this was a great idea.  I ended up buying 3
more, bilberry ice (white and purple), snowcap (white), and JC Weguelin
(china blue).  I placed them (pots and all) in a wide shallow pot with the
little pump and fountain the middle, filled in with drain gravel and topped
the pots with pea gravel.  It has made nice little fountain with a very
pleasant sound.
