Friday Fountain Challenge: August

This might not look like a fountain initially, but come a little closer

See that drip at the end of the beautiful bronze leaf?

The Water Garden at Kiftsgate Court Garden is very different in style to the rest of the garden, being much more contemporary. The twenty-four stainless steel stems are topped with gilded bronze leaves moulded from a philodendron. They sway in the breeze and water drips from the leaves providing a soothing and relaxing tranquil spot in the busy garden.

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 artistic fountains. I’m sure she would love to see you.

      I wouldn’t mind it, but I’d need a much bigger garden!

    Oh this is an exquisite fountain Jude – lovely spot and great photos! Looking at the lawn it would be in England would it :)!!

      It’s very different to the usual English fountains 🙂

    This is beautiful. I’ve just clicked through to your original post. I’d never heard of that garden…it looks well worth a visit. Thanks Jude.

      It is a lovely garden and very close to Hidcote so you can visit both in one day.

      It is a lovely sculpture with the additional attraction of the water effect.

    What a very different fountain! It looks like it has a platform that one could theoretically sit on.

    Is the dripping from the leaves constant or irregular?

    1. Heyjude says:

      Irregular. There is a burst of water which looks like rainfall, very pretty.
