Soothing Saturday

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The video I have chosen for this post is one of my favourite Christmas carols..."O Little Town of Bethlehem" (Frank Sinatra, 1948)
The image stays the same throughout the video, so you can listen to this without having to watch it.  Enjoy!

The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took back in July of this year.  As I have mentioned in the past, I cannot resist a fountain when I see it, so two of these photos are of a fountain;  the other is elephant ears.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.



Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.

  1. Linda, your water photos are great, and the "elephant ears" I had one growing at another place, I think they might be frost tender, as down here it is under lots of shady trees, and hasn't grown much at all. Cheers, Jean.

  3. I've never seen a fountain quite like that. It looks interesting, and you captured it nicely in your photos. I had to smile when I saw the elephant ears. I was thinking of the kind they sell at carnivals to raise your cholesterol. :)

  11. The water in those pretty fountains look like ice! Or maybe since it is almost winter, my mind is on ice. :-)

  13. Hi Linda! Thanks for popping by. Just watched your baby elephant video of baby meeting the ocean for the first time. It was awesome! Great fountain photos. With all this snow we have had, it's refreshing to see some summertime shots! Cheers.
