Charlie's Incredible Water Wheel

Many of you know Charlie and Louise Allred because I've named him "the Butterfly Man" who made this Butterfly Bench out of steel for our garden. It's been a treasure that I don't believe will ever be matched. My emotions about it can't be expressed in words.

Charlie is always creating and trying to do something he's not done before, so this year he brought us an incredible gift. A water wheel for the garden. Louise loves gardens, so I'm sure he receives a lot of inspiration from her.

The sound of water and the mesmerizing spin of the wheel is a delight from the screened porch. The birds like playing in the base supply of water and the squirrels don't quite know what to think of it.

You can see it running and hear the water (and our voices) on a video I placed at You Tube.
