Watery Wednesday

Thank you 2sweetnsaxy of Eyes Mind Heart for creating and hosting this great meme, Watery Wednesday. You can visit by clicking on the button above to either share your own photos or just enjoy looking at other water photos from around the world.

We're still at Meadowlark Gardens. The photo above is the top of the fountain outside the visitors' centre. The two below are at the edge of the lake we walked around. Hopefully you can enlarge the photo to get a clearer view. I have noticed some of my photos stay small when clicked on. There is a couple of Canada Geesey, along with a very sleep duck having a snooze, but I don't think he is visible.
These flowers are called Coral Bells and just in case you are wondering where the water is, that's it behind the flower, the background.
I have taken several photographs of these sculpures over the years.

A view across the lake showing the gazebo.

The fountain makes me want a sip. And I can see why you keep photographing those fun sculptures. They look real but wired.

Bonnie Bonsai said...

That is so awesome Denise! Even if three pictures can be enlarged, I have no complain as each picture has its own beautiful story and life to tell. You're the first I commented on this Watery Sunday.

Hi Denise, those deer sculptures, you could almost mistake them for the real thing if you only gave them a quick glance.

The bench in your 2nd photo looks like it would be such a peaceful place to stop for a rest. Last photo sure does appear peaceful too.

I'm turning into a big fan of Meadowlark gardens. Another great series of posts. I'm also becoming a fan of coral bells. I've probably seen them before without knowing the name. I love the name as much as the flower.

Angie said...

I so agree with all the comments! What more can I say - thank you. (And thanks for your visit.)

Kay said...

Beautiful garden. I love those deer sculptures. Very elegantly done.
