The Art Of Recycling!!!!

Image Just to prove that there is a "use" for everything....the old "laundry tubs" that I salvaged when renovating our house some years back...(now a pond)..has certainly given me lots of visual pleasure this summer...with the surprise blooming of some beautiful tropical water lillies & of course the fact that it became home for some very happy little goldfish!!!

It changes colour on mine, depending on the angle from which I am looking at the monitor.
