Marie, this is just gorgeous and very creative. You have turned an ordinary garden hose into a work of art.

Gorgeous full frame composition with great selective detail, Marie!! I have seen this type of set up often at garden shops, but have never seen it so beautifully taken and presented. This really demonstrates your skill as a photographer!!

Marie, I think you're an AMAZING photographer no matter what the subject!!! I would almost bet that we'll see this one again - and again :o) Such an ordinary object skillfully composed to create a very appealling image! Love it as an abstract!
