Friday Fountain Challenge: December

Snowshill Manor is a Cotswold manor house packed with extraordinary treasures collected over a life time by Charles Wade


In addition there is a lovely garden with lots of nooks and crannies to explore. And in one courtyard is this delightful huffing and puffing Green Man fountain.


I think he’d look rather splendid in my garden – I have a stone wall and I have the lichens to go with it!

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

This month is a free for all so if you have a fountain to share I’m sure she would love to see you.

    Hi Jude is he huffing and puffing or blowing a raspberry? Just asking…..after last weeks fountain I feel I need to check these things. We might need fountain PG ratings 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      After last weeks you could be right!!

  2. restlessjo says:

    Yes, Mr. Angry or Mr. Huff and Puff. 🙂 Rather like him though.

        Difficult! Will do, after our trip to Leeds tomorrow.

        1. Heyjude says:

          OK. Thought you were going today. I obviously didn’t read the comment correctly. Duh!

    2. Heyjude says:

      he has the most amazing eyebrows!!

  3. Do you think they would notice if you tucked him under your arm as you were leaving?

    1. Heyjude says:

      I suspect he is well and truly fastened to the wall.

  4. BeckyB says:

    he’s adorable . . . . . . seems to have lots of hair coming out of his ears too!

  5. Pat says:

    Absolutely right! Send us another post when it is on your wall. 🙂

    I’ve got a green man but not with a fountain!

  7. This guy reminds me very strongly of a photo I have … but where did I take it?? Oh dear.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Oh dear indeed. I fear my memory is slipping away into an abyss. I know I visited a physic garden, I can see it in my mind’s eye, but can I remember where? I can’t even remember the country except I know it was a hot day!!

      1. Hmm, it being a hot day is not going to help you much in narrowing it down, I fear!

          Thought it might have been Taormina on Sicily, but it wasn’t 😦

        2. I’ve been to Taormina! Lovely spot.

    The first thing that came to mind when I saw this photo was my mother’s expression of ‘complaining until you’re blue in the face’ 🙂
    He looks rather bad tempered. Maybe if I had a spout stuck in my mouth, I’d be annoyed too 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Haha… he does rather!
