A fountain without water
Steven Gunther

A fountain without water

Water used to spill from the conch shell on this cherub's shoulders, splashing into the giant clamshell beneath his feet.

But when Bill Anderson inherited the fountain and moved it to his home in Newport Beach, he and his wife, Dana, decided against the expense of added plumbing. Instead Dana planted a cascade.

The main spiller is white-flowered bacopa. The froth under the cherub's toes is campanula and Alpine strawberries.
