Idea for a 3 Tier Water Fall & Fountian

This is the huge Elephant Ear Plant we have out back by the corner of the house, sometimes they will get as long as 30 to 36 inches from the  top to the point .
I have the instructions on how to use large leaves for the basic shape of a bird bath with cement , I want to make a tiered water fall some day for somewhere in the yard .
There are 2 things that have kept me from making it so far, how heavy it will be and then we will have to run electric to the water pump and add a pool, but I really do think it would be beautiful if i ever do make it and add lots of flowers and plants all around .
We have cut this back so many times and it always manages to come back, even after the cold winter we had in Dec.of  2010.


  1. Wow, that is a beautiful elephant ear plant. I would love to see the water fall with the leaf shapes. I'll bet that is really neat!

  2. Beautiful plant. Can you point me to some instructions on how to make those cement 'dishes' with the plant imprints? I've been dying to try to make a bowl like that.

  3. Thank you ladies ,go to
    look for back yard projects -leaf bird baths.
    Good luck and if you make one please post.Thank you ,Cheryl

  4. That would be so neat! If you do make one, be sure to take pictures of the process and finished fountain!

  5. Cheyl, I git your link, but things are so crazy and may days so full, I can't find where I put it. It still might take me a day or two to get to it. I love you and miss you terribly, It is so wonderful to see your face, and even the church wall. It all starts there for so many people. I love you!
