Friday Fountain Challenge: July



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

If you’d like to join in with the fountain challenge then please pop over to Polianthus for the rules

This month she is looking for stone fountains.Β 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….

  2. Lucid Gypsy says:

    We are sadly lacking in fountains, in the whole of the south west as far as I know.

    1. Heyjude says:

      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!

    1. Heyjude says:

      A pretty shape. So many fountains in Geneva!

        Not a place I would have associated with fountains, Jude

        1. Heyjude says:

          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?

        2. Sue says:

          I’m sure we did, but modern planners probably did away with a lot of them….

  4. A really lovely looking fountain, Jude. πŸ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

      I like the shape, and the flowers πŸ™‚

    That’s a good solid one! πŸ™‚ How goes the weeding? Re the snails, Mick says his secret weapon is a hedgehog. Have you got one?

    1. Heyjude says:

      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!

      1. restlessjo says:

        The snails too πŸ™‚ Happy weekend!

        1. Heyjude says:

          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
