Future version of the Alsation's
Rube Goldberg water pond

In the spring of 2014, for the enjoyment of the residents, we will build a Pergola for the Alsation with a Rube Goldberg water pond attached to it.  My friend, who is an architect suggested that we create motion (spinning yellow spike harrow) in the courtyard area of the Alsation.   We will have 8 different water flows into an antique livestock boiling pot.   Four of the flows are complex and four are simple.
