Icy downspout

We used the Japanese method of downspouts on the front of our house. The water runs down the rain chain into a ceramic chimney flu filled with gravel. This method serves as a watering system for my herb garden by my front door. Very efficient and interesting in the winter. The ice melts from the inside out and the melting water glistens in the sun.
