Water, Water Everywhere

I love water. Rivers, lakes, oceans, fountains, sprinklers, it doesn't matter. A view of the sunset over the bay in Clearwater Beach, seeing the sun sparkling off the surface of the Clinton River outside our balcony or the tinkling sound of water trickling in the little fountain in my garden. Just the sound and sight of water calms me. I think that is why we live where we do.

Here are some pictures of several of the beautiful fountains I have seen and enjoyed over the summer.

The kids playing in the fountain in a little park in Charlotte. We love this park.

A lovely water feature at George, George Park in Clinton Twp. Michigan

Another fountain at George, George Park

These next few, are pictures from a park right in the center of uptown Charlotte. I love the sculptures of little children playing.

Isn't that funny?! That we should both post "fountains"? I like ALL of yours. I'd love to find George. The park looks beautiful. And I like the fountain in your yard. I play with that idea - just get worried about the maintenance, wintering, etc.

There truly IS something about water...And a reason Jesus said He is the Living Water....

I'm a water person too...we're planning to add some sort of water feature to our garden here eventually. We had koi pond and a fountain in our garden in England and loved them both.

First I gotta finish unpacking : )

Yes, I have been enjoying fountains this summer as well. There is just something joyful and peaceful about them. Your photos are great. I can feel your joy. It is contagious. As Rebecca already said, "Joy like a fountain . . ."
