Made a watering station today!

The stones and twigs I first gathered were not sufficient as you can see in the second picture. Went around for a scout and found some additional materials: more stones, more twigs, a piece of a palm leaf and some shells that a sweet little girl gave me a while ago as a present and up until today I didn't know what to do with them!

The spot I chose to put the watering station has half shade half sun, close to fruit trees, the vegetable garden and close to me so I can watch :)
