I saw this in Charlotte Homearama. It was a nice water feature while you were sitting on the patio and it looked easy to make if you can drill a million tiny holes in a piece of copper tubing and connect it to a recirculating water pump.
When you visit New Orleans, be sure to step outside the city and visit some of the expansive plantation houses that are just a few miles away. Oak Alley Plantation is the most iconic, made absolutely spectacular by the rows of massive oak trees draped in Spanish moss which lead you to the front door. Magical!!
Fallingwater house - Frank Lloyd Wright You can actually open a piece of the floor in this house and stick your toes in the swiftly moving water OR put your fishing pole in there! Amazing concept--tucked in in a forest in western PA.
