Montreux-(1)

A slight change of location, but still in Switzerland, this lovely old (1848) stone fountain is in Montreux. I love the way the Swiss decorate their drinking fountains with floral displays. These may only be the humble begonia, but it looks like a lovely Easter bonnet.

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

  1. I love this Jude! We adored all the floral displays when we were in Switzerland too – I remember some superb ones on the lake front at Weggis on Lake Lucerne 🙂 We did a day trip once to Montreux and had lunch by the lake – the colours of the flowers were gorgeous. I wish we’d seen this old stone fountain whilst we were there too!

    1. The flowers along the promenade at Montreux were exceptional. We were there in late September and it was marvellous. Switzerland is a beautiful country, just a tad expensive!

  2. A splash of colour will liven up anything – even an old, weathered fountain. I can’t help but wonder if it used to sport a statue at some time, but the flowers are a pretty alternative 🙂
