The stone trough is my favourite object as it is probably more than a century old. I'd a thread about it in the Antiques and Collectibles forum here: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/850036/ . But now I thought of showing it up here. It's been doing very well and I'm glad the lily is happily living with some little fish. I've a pond too. I'll post pictures as this goes on.
