Got a bunch in Riberas. I don’t have a rain gauge but grass is growing in the back garden.

I have changed the garden in my old fountain and need to find a new home for my rain gauge. The fountain leaked like a sieve but last night's rain was too much even for the leaks. I have an inch of water above the gravel. Now, I have to drill holes to drain it before the plants drown. Never a dull moment.

What place has the best prices on really big pots? And who sells rain gauges or just Amazon?

Since I had to have 3 big palms removed I have large stumps so want colorful pots to plant flowers in to sit on the stumps and the plant in the pot marking the lid to my septic burst because that plant outgrew it.

This is best rain gauge I've ever used and I've had one since 2003; reliable, remote readings from inside house, self-clearing.  I had one sitting outside year-round on patio table for 4+ years.  From 2003 to 2017 I was US Weather Service Spotter when we had part-time homes in US and this gauge was always accurate.

I bought mine from the garden centre in Riberas (next to where the 711 used to be located). Nothing fancy and does the job. I have now put it in a piece of copper pipe that is sitting in the gravel inside the fountain. Fountain also got three drain holes drilled this morning and my plants are no longer drowning. Time for lunch and a nap.
