Fountain @ The Ruins [Watery Wednesday]

@ mirandablue
Who wouldn't love a fountain especially on a hot and humid afternoon such as this?   The soothing sound of water, the fresh sensation, the transparent movement draws every visitor to this spot in the garden---a treat for the senses at The Ruins.  This 4-tiered fountain was constructed after the mansion was completed at the turn of the century.

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.

Your top photo reminds me of Monet and his garden paintings - it would look lovely as a pastel drawing.
