Another fountain from the Old Town in Geneva. So many fountains in Switzerland!

This month she is looking for stone fountains. I’m sure she would love to see you.

I really like this fountain -‘seems just the type for tossing in a coin to make a wish….
We are sadly lacking in fountains, in the whole of the south west as far as I know.
Sometimes there are some in NT gardens and other gardens, but I can’t think of any in towns or cities offhand. And certainly not drinking fountains.
Love this fountain!
A pretty shape. So many fountains in Geneva!
Not a place I would have associated with fountains, Jude
A lot of European cities seem to have fountains, historically they would have been drinking fountains I suppose. I wonder why we don’t have them?
I’m sure we did, but modern planners probably did away with a lot of them….
A really lovely looking fountain, Jude. 🙂
I like the shape, and the flowers 🙂
That’s a good solid one! 🙂 How goes the weeding? Re the snails, Mick says his secret weapon is a hedgehog. Have you got one?
Haven’t seen a hedgehog in years 😦
Too windy up here over the past few days to spend time in the garden. I’m sure the weeds will be having a great time!
The snails too 🙂 Happy weekend!
Oh, yes. I have already picked up a few (dozen)… now going to Google plants that love windy locations and which snails loathe. Wish me luck!
I like this one, I love the flowers, and it is a bit more “charming” than the other swiss stone fountains, which tend to be more square and austere – it’s the southern influence that makes Geneva so charming
